Expenses: Aren’t Hoover attorneys who handle drunk driving DWI DUI charges expensive?

Factors: The extent of your legal bill for a drunk driving arrest in Hoover depends on (1) your particular circumstances (surrounding the arrest itself, and whether you have been previously arrested for DUI), and (2) if your attorney charges an hourly rate or a flat fee. Helpful Note: It is important to remember that it is far better to invest your time and money into a defense lawyer instead of choosing to pay enormously on the “back end” for the expenses associated with a drunk driving criminal history and the penalties imposed for DUI DWI.

Fee Structure: In some cases, your attorney may take your case for a flat fee. Most attorneys charge an hourly rate ranging between $100 and $500 per hour. As you can see, rates can vary widely. However, an hourly rate does not always reveal whether the final bill will necessarily be higher by working with an attorney who charges a higher rate. Remember that there are ways you can get the most out of your time with your attorney. For example, you should make every attempt to provide your attorney with as much information during your free initial consultation as possible. Before you agree to hire your attorney, ask your Hoover DUI lawyer for an estimate. This will help you control costs and it will put you and your attorney on the same page.

Your Case: The particular facts of your case ultimately determine how much time your Hoover DUI lawyer will be required to spend on your case. Naturally, this has a direct impact on your legal bill. This is why it is important to spend as much time during your free initial consultation ironing out the facts of your case, your situation, etc., so that your attorney will have the best chance of giving you an estimate of your case. It is also important that you arrive at your meetings as prepared as possible. This should be very helpful toward saving you and your attorney time, and therefore save you money as well.

Fees versus Expenses: Also, you should be aware that fees for “expenses” incurred by your attorney for expert witnesses and other costs are usually charged above your attorney’s normal hourly rate.
