The cost of hiring a lawyer with the skill and experience needed to successfully resolve your criminal case can be a concern for many defendants. However, the long-term benefits of avoiding or reducing a conviction and any resulting penalties are great. A lawyer can be an invaluable resource and asset to you.
Still, we understand that many defendants want to have some idea of what it will cost to retain a lawyer. That is why we are upfront about our costs. In criminal defense cases, it can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $50,000 for our attorney services. Obviously, this is a wide price range, but the specific cost depends on the type of crime, the complexity of the case, and whether we reach a plea agreement early or proceed with litigation and go to court.
For example, a first-time DWI offense with no aggravating factors will be at the lower end of the cost spectrum, while a more complex case involving injury or death of another person may be at the higher end of the cost spectrum.
Our Austin practice, serving Georgetown and surrounding communities, offers free consultations in which we can explain our services and expected costs.
