Legal Fees

Fifelski Legal, PLC.

If you are under investigation for a crime in Washtenaw County or have already been charged in court, you can’t afford to leave your case up to chance or circumstance. You have only one opportunity in the legal system to obtain the best possible outcome. An investment in high quality legal defense services is an investment in your future, especially when your liberty is at stake. We generally charge a flat fee for each phase of the judicial process which provides clients with a clear understanding of the cost of the expected legal fees in their case, instead of hourly rate billing which often increase to unexpected levels that clients find frustrating and difficult to afford.

If you are charged with a Misdemeanor offense which carries the possibility of 90 days to 1 year in jail, you can generally expect the initial flat fee charge to be $3,500.00 - $5,000.00, depending on the seriousness of the case or the number of charges. If your case requires legal motions to be filed before trial, a motion fee will be charged at that stage of the case. Finally, if you choose to take your case to trial in an effort to win an acquittal, a trial fee will be charged prior to trial which reflects the complexity of the case and the number of days expected in trial.

If you are charged with a Felony offense which carries the possibility of more than 1 year in prison, you can expect the initial flat fee charge to start at $6,000. However, the seriousness and number of Felony charges may warrant a higher initial flat fee charge in order for us to provide the high quality legal services you deserve. All of the important factors related to your case will be discussed at your initial consultation and you will be provided with a fee estimate based upon your particular needs and goals. If your case requires legal motions to be filed before trial, a motion fee will be charged at that stage of the case. If you choose to take your case to trial in an effort to win an acquittal, a trial fee will be charged prior to trial which reflects the complexity of the case and the preparation needed to mount a strong defense, as well as the number of days expected in trial.
