DWI / DUI Legal Fees
You didn’t plan on getting arrested. And I bet that you didn’t budget the thousands of dollars in DWI / DUI legal fees for having to hire a lawyer. At The David Hunter Law Firm, I understand the high price of DUI / DWI legal fees and offer several payment plans that will help you afford the experienced representation you need.
Your initial phone consultation with me is free. There is no risk on your part and you will learn what your rights and options are. When we are finished, if you are not convinced that I will be able to protect you to your complete satisfaction, then you can simply decide not to hire me. I won’t trouble you again and you’ll owe me nothing.
If you do decide that you need an experienced DWI attorney to fight your DWI arrest, we’ll discuss my DUI legal fees and design a payment plan that works for you. For your convenience, I accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
Some people do try to defend themselves without a lawyer. Others hire the cheapest lawyer they can find. Hiring an experienced DWI attorney like me is essential since the DUI / DWI legal fees, penalties, and consequences associated with your arrest can be severe.
The High Cost of DUI / DWI Legal Fees
Still not sure that you need to hire an experienced DWI lawyer? Or do you believe that pleading guilty and taking the State’s deal is going to save you from paying DUI legal fees? Think again!
You will find that the cost of pleading guilty to a DWI amounts to at least $5,000.00 in DWI / DUI legal fees, not including your attorney fees, or how much your car insurance rates are going to go up. And your insurance company could very well cancel your policy altogether, forcing you to get high-risk, very expensive insurance elsewhere.
On top of these expensive DWI / DUI legal fees, you could go to jail. For a first offense, you probably won’t get any jail time. But if you are ever convicted of a second DWI offense, you’re looking at mandatory jail time of three to 30 days.
And you will always have a criminal record. This alone could have a significant negative impact on your future.
On the other hand, if we are successful in keeping a DWI conviction off your record, you can avoid these expensive DUI / DWI legal fees, plus the inevitable increase in your insurance rates.
