Michael Flynn’s legal fees continue to grow with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and Flynn’s guilty plea to “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia’s ambassador.

In his coverage of the legal fees of Michael Flynn and Andrew McCabe for Fox News, Alex Pappas sought out Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Stahl for background on the costs of criminal defense cases. In his March 30, 2018 coverage comparing the legal costs and funding of Michael Flynn’s legal expenses to that of Andrew McCabe, Mr. Pappas quotes Mr. Stahl:

“Most people have no idea how expensive top flight representation costs in white-collar cases,” Robert Stahl, a criminal defense attorney and a former assistant U.S. Attorney, told Fox News.

Stahl said experienced attorneys generally charge between $700 to more than $1,000 an hour, often with multiple attorneys working on the case. Many top tier attorneys charge a minimum of $3 million or more for a complex federal white-collar trial, he said.


“Multiply the amount of time spent meeting with the client to obtain the facts, the hours reviewing documents and case law, and meeting with the government, and you can see how legal bills quickly escalate,” Stahl said.
