A: If you are asking how much to retain an attorney to defend you in the lawsuit, which would include doing a demurrer or motion to strike, the retainers would vary depending on the type of case, usually starting around $5000 +/-, with an hourly rate thereafter. If you are inquiring about just the cost to draft a demurrer and motion to strike on your behalf and not handle any other part of the defense, it would probably be an hourly rate, likely between $1250 and $2500, depending on the complexity.
