Most lawyers cost between $150-$400 per hour. An experienced intellectual property lawyer may charge $150-$500 to register a copyright.
When filing a copyright registration, it's important to work with a specialist that truly understands how to follow the filing rules and ensure you get the right protection.
If you have a small business plan from LegalShield, you can register your copyright yourself for only $35-$55 (the cost of federal court filing fees). But, you’ll complete the registration process with a copyright lawyer by your side. They’ll answer questions, provide legal advice and review your registration documents before you file them, all for a fraction of typical law firm fees.
