The cost of representation at trial will vary according to the individual facts and circumstances of your case. The cost of trial is in addition to any flat fee that is negotiated in your case. Factors that influence the amount of the trial fee include the seriousness of the offense charged, the length of trial, the number of witnesses, and the amount of work involved in your particular case. My trial fee is typically expressed as an hourly fee with a cap. For example, I may quote you an hourly rate of $150 dollars capped at $2000. If trial is very likely in your case, I will often require payment of at least a portion of the trial fee before agreeing to represent you. If trial is less likely, I will often allow payment of the trial fee at a later date. The trial fee associated with your case and the terms of payment will vary depending on the facts and circumstances of your case. Payment plans are not available to all clients.
