Typically a felony case can range anywhere from $750 to upwards of $10,000. It would depend on the difficulty of the case, the facts involved and whether or not the case goes to trial or is plead out.

I apologize for not responding to the initial information--often times it does not appear until after I have responded.
$3500 is probably a fair fee for a case such as yours. If you are innocent, or have mitigating factors such as the case you described above, the case will likely be harder than if you just wanted to plead guilty. You may want to call around and see if there are cheaper attorneys in your area.
I hope this additional information helps.
