As the sights, sounds, and smells of being in jail start to fade, the first thing on people's minds is how much legal representation is going to cost. How much will it cost me to hire a DUI lawyer?
There is a great deal of difference between attorney fee's. As you will find, different lawyers charge different amounts. Some lawyers charge very little, while some charge a great deal of money for defending these types of cases.
I have never had a client ever tell me that they paid too much IF they won their case. That is our goal, that is to win your case. The first thing you should ask yourself is, what is this going to cost me if I lose? What is it going to cost me professionally? What is it going to cost me personally? Then determine if it is really going to be worthwhile to pay a lawyer who really knows how to defend these cases.
In order to have somebody to have my level of training, with the great deal of time and effort I have taken to get to the point where I can win cases in court, at trial. That type of training requires the fee's be higher than other lawyers, who simply stand next to you as you plead guilty.
So keep in mind as you evaluate which lawyer to hire, what you need as your result, and I think you will understand that you need to pay to have the best lawyer you can find.
