There is no way to predict what your fees and costs will be without first meeting with you to discuss the facts of your case. As a practical matter, your fees will be directly proportional to how much time your criminal defense attorney spends on your case, multiplied by the hourly rate you and he agree to. If you and an HTG&A, P.A. attorney agree that you will retain him, as with any other case, you will be required to sign a contract which clearly spells out what you will be charged.
Yes. If you are charged with a state criminal offense, you will be prosecuted by the State of Florida. If you are charged with a Federal offense, you will be prosecuted by the United States Government. In rare cases you may be charged with violating both Federal and State laws, and be prosecuted by both State and Federal authorities. It should be noted that military violations are Federal in nature but are governed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The Courts Martial is handled by a Military Judge.
