Where do I start if and when Im ready to turn myself in? Also what would be a fee range on a Criminal Lawyer that could help?

“I have warrants for 2 different counties. Both for Violation of Probation one Misdeameanor and one Felony.”


It is a good idea to turn yourself in rather than wait to be arrested on the active warrants. If you turn yourself in you are in control of the timing. If you wait to be arrested it could be at the most inconvenient time possible. I have seen people who were on the way to get married, on their way to a parent’s funeral, or even just before being admitted to the hospital for surgery! I would recommend hiring an experienced Criminal Defense attorney ASAP so you would be represented when you turn yourself in to authorities. Probably the best place to turn yourself in would be the county that has the felony charge. However, your question doesn’t include nearly enough details about your cases to be able to give an accurate assessment of your case. You should discuss the specifics of the charges with your attorney and then follow the advice of your attorney.

As far as the fee range of criminal defense attorneys, it will differ based on numerous factors including their experience, location, success rate etc.. Remember, your freedom is on the line – investing in an experienced criminal defense attorney could be the best investment you have ever made!

I hope this information is helpful to you. Good Luck!
