Retainers Starting at $250.00

Facing a criminal conviction is a stressful and overwhelming experience. You may be looking at serious penalties including fines, jail time, and irreversible damage to your reputation. At a moment like this, it is crucial to get help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer like William R. Noelker.

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Noelker knows the Kentucky criminal justice system like the back of his hand. He understands the strategies and tactics that prosecutors rely on. This unique insight allows him to fight for the best possible outcome in any criminal case.

Every defendant has a right to an attorney. Unfortunately many defendants cannot hire an attorney because they don't have the money to pay the very high retainer fees many attorneys charge. Often how big the attorneys's ego is directly proportional to what he charges you. You may pay $5,000.00 or more up front only to have your attorney appear a few times in court before the case is settled. What the attorney won't tell you is that the prosecutor would have likely offered the same deal no matter who your attorney was. So a plea bargain that could have been done for no more than $500.00 has now cost you $5,000.00. Criminal defense can be expensive especially if you want to have a trial but most criminal cases end in a plea deal. In these cases many defendants simply pay to much.

I offer very low retainer fees based on the scope of the representation. I don't charge based on the nature of the offense but on the strategic goals of the client. If you decide that a plea deal is in your best interests then I will charge you accordingly. I don't have a big ego so I don't charge big retainers. You get a seasoned, professional attorney who will tailor the representation based on what you need not based on what crime you have committed. Bond assignments and payment plans can also be arranged.
