How much money should I expect to pay for a criminal defense lawyer to represent me?
Criminal defense lawyers typically charge what’s called fixed fees. In other words, not hourly fees but a fee for the case plus whatever costs are involved. It’s impossible, of course, for me to tell you how much you’ll pay because every case is different. Is it state? Is it federal? How many people are charged? Do you have a prior criminal history? How serious is the crime that you’re charged for? There are so many variables.
In addition, how experienced is your criminal defense lawyer? Is he or she board-certified? It’s impossible for me to tell you how much but you’re going to pay more money for the better lawyers who are experienced, who have the reputation, who know what they’re doing, than you will for a kid right out of law school, that’s obvious.
