Lawyer fee arrangments in DeKalb County DUI cases

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

DeKalb County DUI lawyer Richard S. Lawson can assist you in getting the best possible outcome for your DeKalb Co. DUI charges.  But how much does it cost to hire a DUI lawyer?

Every person charged with a crime in Georgia is entitled to an attorney should they desire one.  The court process is complex, so having representation by an attorney is essential to protect your rights.  If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, DeKalb County has a public defender who will represent you for a small charge.  The DeKalb County public defender currently represents thousands of indigent clients. 

Private attorneys maintain much smaller caseloads and are therefore able to give their clients more individualized attention.  The cost of such services varies depending on the unique circumstances of your case. 

Some DUI lawyers will go to court and plea out your case for a lower fee.  If you are interested in getting the best possible result however, and wish to fight the license suspicion that is required of DUI cases, inquire with your potential lawyer as to how many trials they have had.  DUI lawyers who contest cases will likely charge a higher fee then a plea lawyer.  Other factors like your prior DUI, criminal, and driving record, whether there was children in the car, and whether there was a motor vehicle accident also affect the rates charged by DUI lawyers.
