A: It's going to depend on the type of case, expected duration of the case, and the particular expertise of the lawyer. Generally, in Northern Virginia, you're probably looking at $300 to $600 per hour, but it's impossible to nail it down for you. Call around! Search the web for attorneys in your area that work in the practice area you need, call the office, and ask for an estimate. It can be difficult for attorneys to give a good estimate based only on an initial phone call, but it could at least give you an idea. Good luck!
