A New York Times article from 1994 estimates O.J. Simpson’s lawyer fees at approximately 5 million dollars. The exact amount that O.J. Simpson paid the defense team to help acquit him of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Brown, however, is unknown.

An LA Times article from 1994 estimates the hourly costs of a legal defense attorney the caliber of those assembled for Simpson’s defense at $250 to $400 an hour, though the article postulates that Simpson probably reached a flat-rate agreement with his team. What is known is that the case cost the county of Los Angeles 9 million dollars.
