How Much Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Cost?

When you are in a situation where you are charged with a criminal offense and are looking into hiring an attorney, one of the questions you are going to have is, “How much is it going to cost?” And that really depends on what the actual charge is. Obviously, if you are dealing with a multiple co-defendant drug conspiracy case, those cases can last three to four months in a trial, which is going to be different than a trial for a DUI offense — which may last a day. Depending on what it is you are charged with, the scale of the fee will be determined. We consider all criminal defense cases within our scope. Anything from a DUI case all the way up to the largest drug conspiracy case or RICO case. We have handled everything including death penalty cases out of our office and have had very good success with respect to large scale drug conspiracy cases.

We have tried everything from a drug conspiracy case and secured acquittals to murder in the first degree cases and secured acquittals to assaults and simple assaults and secured acquittals. So it really depends upon what the scope of the representation will be and what resources we will need to put in place in order to put you in the best position possible as a client.
