Criminal Defense Attorney Cost Elements

If your case is complex, the fees associated with your case will be higher. For example, if you are charged with a felony, a defense attorney will fight your case extensively versus fighting a small misdemeanor. A complex case necessitates more time spent on your case, which may affect the price depending on how you set up your billing.

Naturally, an attorney’s experience affects the cost. A more seasoned criminal defense attorney will charge more than an attorney with less experience. While many people focus on saving money in their day-to-day life, the law is not an area in life to take the cheapest deal. For many cases, paying a higher price for a more experienced attorney will decrease the longevity of the case which provides you with peace sooner.

Depending on the case and the attorney, you may be billed hourly or by the case. With hourly billing, you pay your attorney a set fee for every hour he works on your case. With case billing, you pay your attorney a fixed fee to fight your case.
