First offense. I cooperated, took the Breathalyzer, was arrested and bonded. I’ve had my first court date and have 30 days to find an attorney. It is a misdemeanor first offense dui charge. What should I expect to pay for a dui attorney in Tulsa?
I'm not from the Tulsa area, so I can't tell you what the average cost of a DUI defense there is. However, I can share a little about what questions you should be asking when getting a quote. DUI is a complicated crime that can result in a lot of work for your attorney. Most attorneys will charge you one price to negotiate a plea for you. If your case is pretty cut and dried, and you are prepared to handle the consequences of a conviction (even to a lesser offense), then this may be best for you.
If you believe that you are innocent, then your attorney would likely need to do legal research, draft and file motions and briefs on your behalf, litigate in-court pre-trial motion hearings, and ultimately go to trial for you. If this is your case, then you can expect to pay a significantly higher fee, due to the increased amount of work that will be required of your attorney.
