Getting a DUI is a low point for anyone. Don’t lose hope, though. It isn’t the end of the world. With the help of an expert DUI attorney, you can reduce or scrap the charges entirely. This article will explain what costs to expect when you hire a DUI lawyer.
DUI attorneys aren’t cheap, but that’s because they are doing a lot of work to try and get you out of a sticky legal jam. Different attorneys will come up with different price models, so prices can vary from $1,000 to $5,000.
The prices aren’t random, however. What you pay for is typically what you get. Look at attorneys’ experience. Attorneys who have practiced for decades will probably cost more than an attorney who only has a few years under their belt.
You also want to look into if you will be able to go to a hearing to get your license back. If you can, this can cost you extra. It’s also important to note which fees are included pre-trial and which are trial-specific. Some attorneys will charge a cheaper price upfront but have more expenses if the case goes to trial.
