I wouldn't know how much it would cost for someone to recover the data on a phone. That will be up to the shop that offers this kind of service as the price varies significantly.

If you can get a custom recovery flashed onto the phone successfully and boot it then you may be able to actually create a backup of the phone's data and then access the saved backup from the computer. Usually with this backup dumps I'm able to transfer photos, music, downloaded files, documents and with contacts they in a single file which is unreadable but should work when you copy it into another phone (I'm not really sure how this is done but you can search on google on how to do this).

But if you are not confident in doing this stuff and you want the least risk of losing data then you should take it to a shop that is experienced in this kind of stuff.

Precaution: You should make sure that you have set and signed up Google account before your phone was locked and you should remember the password of the Google account.

Step 1 Input any password arbitrary and the system will alert you that you have typed the wrong password for 5 times. Try it again 30 seconds latter.

Step 2 At this moment, you will see "Forgotten the password" on the lower left corner of the unlock interface. Input the Google account and the password and you can have your phone unlocked.

Note: You should make sure the phone is connected to the Internet, or you are not able to log in Google account and remove the pattern lock.
