If you get accused of murder, how much does it cost to defend yourself?

sh*ts true my moms laid an easy path for me I took the long road.
Don't be too hard on yourself.

Most of us didn't listen to our parents or weren't given the guidance we needed.

Few young people do so.

I mean PJ Washington had a baby with Brittany Renner.

At least we didn't fu*k up that bad.

I had a friend go through this.

Had to max out his credit cards and mortgage his house in the end. Was about $250,000.

The law firm that got him off them processed his bankruptcy claim straight after.

So his credit is fu*ked for the next X years but he’s a free man.

You do know the reason it’s 98% is because no one rarely goes to trial and just takes the 1st offer right ?
They take the offer because when they charge you they have enough evidence on you to fry your a*s

I like stuff like this. They need to start showing interspecfics of sh*t like this and stop showing just the good rap video flossing. Even though u can put up 10 percent of bail I personally done seen mothers put they house up for collateral and the damage black genocide has done to to black families.

This my homie lil tony..Him and his dad big Tony were both murdered young. Lil Tony lost his life last month at 32 and his dad in his mid 20s about 3 years after lil Tony was born. Ironically lil Tony has a 8 month old baby on the way who won't get to see there farther. All the names smoking on took etc we don't get to see the mothers tears of pain or the scrambling up money for funeral arrangements.

Rip lil tony and big Tony


Please stop the gun violence

This is why gun owners need self defense liability insurance.

You can do everything right but end up f*ghting for your life.
Honestly as a black man having a gun seems dangerous. Even if it’s in self-defense and they break into your home chances are they’ll still charge your a*s

Since hip-hop glorifies k*lling, what do you guys think of this?




From Eisenberglaw.org,

What The Best Criminal Lawyers Charge

The fees for a criminal attorney can run into the thousands of dollars for misdemeanor, and start at $10,000 to $15,000 for a felony. A murder case might cost $100,000 or more. Only after you have a discussion with an attorney and present the facts of your case will he be able to provide an estimate of your potential attorney’s fees.

Criminal defense attorneys can charge by the hour or by a flat fee. While hourly fees are considered more customer friendly, the final amount can be considerable if the case becomes complicated or proceeds to trial. Many attorneys offer a retainer that covers a specific block of time, with the understanding that the fees will increase if the case goes to trial.

Costs and expenses for investigation, research, court filings, travel, etc. are in addition to the fees for the lawyer’s time. Attorneys with a vast amount of experience like Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C. may cost more than other attorneys, but you are paying for over 35 years of experience and a proven winning track record.


I was looking around and the numbers are pretty much the same, state by state, across the country.

I never put the numbers in perspective so I thought I was interesting. Basically if you are accused of murder, and you’re broke, you’re sorta kinda fu*ked.

What y’all think?
His numbers are definitely on point, you'll likely need to retain multiple expert witnesses as well. Most folks drop $30k to $50k on a private attorney just to get dumped on the PD after the prelim.

Lawyers are like blood pressure pills. Only good for stupid people and their are a lot of stupid people

You can spend thousands to millions on lawyers and still go to jail. You only need blood pressure pills if you too stupid to exercise and stop eating meat

Gonna quote myself but fu*k it probably one of the only members that’s actually been close to a case like this.

One of the biggest line item expenses was….. Photocopying and printing. Yep. Other than the lawyers time in court, a massive expense was fu*king photocopying. I can’t remember the exact charge but it was something stupid like $10 a page or something.

These lawyers will get you. They know you’re desperate. But this was the best defence lawyer for this particular case so had to be done.

I'm so happy i had a strict a*s mother, who taught me consequences young. I always used too say, i was afraid of my mother more than NYPD. I remember one day i got caught skipping school, cop sat me in the back of his car & he told me to call my mom. On god, i told him just take me to jail. She always used too say....

"You can rap all that dipstreet (dipset) & 50 if you want too, but if yo a*s end up jail trying to be like them, you staying in there. I ain't bailing out no murder. Idgaf if you are my son. Rent ain't cheap, n*gga."
