    DUI cases are beatable. In many cases reasonable doubt can be created as to whether you were over the legal limit at the time of driving. Police often rush the investigation and other times aren’t properly prepared when they testify in court or at the DMV Hearing. Proper legal representation can exploit weaknesses in the case against you.

    When looking for an attorney make sure you ONLY an attorney who focuses solely in DUI defense. You do not want to hire a "jack of all trades master in none". You need an attorney whose entire life is dedicated to fighting drunk driving charges. Good luck

    When looking for an attorney make sure you ONLY an attorney who focuses solely in DUI defense. You do not want to hire a "jack of all trades master in none". You need an attorney whose entire life is dedicated to fighting drunk driving charges. Those fees are a bit high If you keep searching, you will find a more reasonably priced DUI defense attorney.

  • How much should i expect to pay for a lawyer?

    I received a DUI last night, first offense. female 37. No accident or injury

    Edgar’s Answer

    Many DUI lawyers will take a DUI case on a flat fee basis, meaning they will give you a flat rate for representation throughout the entire case. You will usually pay part of the cost, or even the entire cost upfront. This is known as a retainer payment.

    Experience with DUI cases is a key thing to look for, so don’t go with a lawyer who is "jack of all trades, master of none."

    All things considered, an average DUI lawyer cost is probably going to set you back about $2,500-$5,000 for a first time DUI offense.

    Yes there are many of ways to get the case dismissed or reduced. You need to sit down with an experienced DUI defense attorney to go over your specific case. Only then will you know what defenses are available.
