Jonathan Handelman - Counselor at Law - (207) 373-4100

Representing Coastal Mainers from Freeport to Rockport


Consultation and Fees


 Free half-hour consultations

If you have a question about a criminal matter, I offer free half-hour consultations. You can either call to discuss your case, or schedule an appointment to speak with me in person. If after meeting with me you decide you need my help with your legal situation, we can discuss the terms of my representation.


No hourly rate for criminal defense

Unlike many attorneys, I do not charge an hourly rate for criminal defense. My billing practice is to charge a flat-fee regardless of how long a case takes to resolve. The benefits of a flat fee are that you do not need to worry about how long it takes me to write a letter, make a phone call, drive to court, or review evidence. And our relationship is not weakened by a concern over what things cost or whether you will be getting a big bill in the mail for last month’s work.


No surprises on your final price

You know up-front what my representation will cost you. No surprises. No small print.

I accept payment in cash, by check, and by credit card.
