Rates vary from attorney to attorney. Most offer free consultations. I would call a few in your area and set up appointments to discuss the case with them in detail. This will give you an idea of how they would handle the case as well as their fees and payment plans.

Possession of marijuana is a class "b" misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2000. In my 20 years of experience in Austin I have been able to get most first time possession of marijuana cases dismissed.

The fee that a lawyer will charge will depend on a number of variables, but in Austin you can get a good lawyer on such a case for $3,000 or less. Fines, court costs, etc. also can vary a lot depending on a number of things, but could be anywhere between 2 or 3 hundred dollars up to 4 or 5 thousand, depending on what's involved.
This answer is intended to be taken as general information and not as specific legal advice. You should always consult a qualified attorney and make him familiar with all the relevant facts in order to get proper legal advice. Every case is different, and they must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
