Legal Fees for Criminal or DUI case in California
criminal case depends on the nature and complexity of the case. For
example, what a lawyer might charge for a murder case would be
substantially more than the fee for a simple speeding ticket. Most
experienced criminal defense lawyers get paid a flat fee for a particular
case. The fee is based on the type of offense and the duration of the
Our office charges a flat fixed fee for most criminal, DUI and traffic
matters in the Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena Courts. The fixed fee
gives the client an assurance that he or she will not be charged any
additional attorney fee than what was initially agreed. So, if the case takes
ten court appearances or just one, the client pays the same amount. Some
Law Firms bill the client by the hour which means every second spent
thinking about the case results in a bill to the client. We do not think this
method of billing is fair on a criminal case and therefore do not engage in
this form of billing.
Some typical fees on cases are as follows:
- DUI Defense : $2500 and up
- Most DMV Matters : $950 and up.
- Misdemeanor Charges : $1500 and up
- Felony Cases : $2500 and up
- Speeding Tickets : $950 and up

- Bench Warrant Recall : $1200 and up
- Expungements : $700 and up
