If you’re dealing with a DUI charge, I know you are stressed out.
The first thing on your agenda is probably to hire a good lawyer. While you want to make sure you’re hiring someone who can give you the best defense, you also probably want to know how much it’ll cost you.
Since each case is unique, there’s no definitive answer on how much a DUI lawyer will cost, but we’re about to give you some information that will help you get a better idea of what to expect.
Common Types of Fee Structures
There are several elements that can determine how much you can expect to pay in legal fees.
Most lawyers will offer two types of fee structures depending on your needs.
An hourly rate; and
A Flat fee
How your lawyer decides to charge you may depend on the amount of work he/she will have to put into your case, the length of time and the likelihood of the case proceeding to trial.
Regardless of the fee scale, an experienced lawyer should be able to determine what kinds of work will go into your DUI case such as court appearances, motions, and negotiating plea bargains.
We do this by comparing the facts of your case to the hundreds of cases we successfully won before yours.
Are Certain Types of Cases More Expensive?
The type of task(s) you need will likely be one of the main determining factors in the overall cost of service.
As you may have been able to guess, certain DUI situations may be more complex than others and may require more of your lawyers time to resolve.
For example, if your DUI results in the death of another person, your case will require more time than a typical DUI.
How Much Can Expect DUI Lawyer Cost to be on Average
Aside from the complexity of the case, the cost of a DUI attorney can also vary depending on things such as location, market rates, and level of experience.
While some cases could be next to nothing if you qualified for the public defender or an appointed attorney because your income is low it could cost around one hundred dollars, others may run well into the thousands to tens of thousand dollars.
The best way to get an accurate idea of how much you may have to pay is to set up a meeting with a local DUI attorney and ask questions on his/her fee structure.
