The Lawyer I'm talking to doesn't charge nearly as much to represent me as some of the other Lawyers. Why is this?

The chances are that you will get exactly what you pay for.
Many times Lawyers who have little experience or who are just starting out in practice do not charge very much for their service because they are still learning or they know they don't usually try cases and will probably "Plea Bargain" your case anyway.
You should not choose a Lawyer based on fee, but on competence and experience.
