The cost of a drunk driving defense lawyer isn’t really a simple question. So-called defense packages can start at as little as $500, just to have a lawyer enter a guilty plea or go through the motions to get you through your case as quickly as possible. Defense can also cost up to $10,000 or more, especially in more complex cases that are billed hourly.
A lawyer who charges more likely does so because of training, experience, proven results, and the time and attention spent on DUI cases. While there are attorneys who overcharge, you can usually tell based on experience and approach whether or not a higher fee is worth it. The more inexpensive lawyers may have had few clients, have little experience, or just do less work, which for some people is what they are looking for (especially those who just need to plead guilty).
Because criminal cases cannot be billed based on a contingency fee structure (paying upon result) there are only two billing options available for DUI attorneys. DUI defense lawyers in Southfield may bill a flat rate for the case, which means that you will be charged for your case as a whole, no matter how much (or little) time is spent on your case. Defenders can also bill hourly, meaning that less complex cases may end up cheaper than more complex cases. There are pros and cons to each, but nothing beats the experience and proven results of a lawyer. Regardless of cost, don’t settle for anything less than the most proven attorney.
An experienced attorney could be the best investment you even make, since you may avoid thousands of dollars in fines and fees, and thousands or hundreds of thousands in lost time and work. Talk to a lawyer about your options for financing, fee structures, and other flexibility that may be available.
