1st Degree Felony: Fees, Payment Calculator
and Loan Application
1st degree felony- $9,750 capped hourly pretrial fee*
Capped hourly: the $9,750 fee is a capped hourly, meaning the fee cannot be more than $9,750 (for pretrial work, except as provided below), but can be less. The firm tracks billing at $300 an hour for attorney time. As an example, if a client pays $9,750 and resolution of the case only requires 10 hours of Edward Stone's time ($300 x 10 = $3,000), then the client is refunded $6,750 (9,750-3,000). Statistically, about 98% of cases are resolved during pretrial proceedings. (Source: New York Times 2012- Wright and Paul Hofer analysis of Bureau of Justice Statistics).
