Get Help with your DUI / DWI Charge
If you were charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated / impaired (DWI), then you may benefit from a private lawyer to defend yourself. Every case is different, so you may present your unique scenario to understand your options. Tell us about your DUI:
How much will my DUI cost?
It depends! Every situation is different, so no estimate will fit you perfect. National average cost for the whole DUI is approximately $10,000 total, where $1,500-$3,000+ covers attorney fees (and more, if you go to trial). The auto insurance increase is the bulk of the expense, covering $4,000 to $6,000. Other material fees you’ll pay include state fines, drivers re-licensing, and alcohol education. On top of this, you may have lost wages due to trial and administration, which could run several thousand dollars or more.
What do I do if I cannot afford an attorney?
This website helps people who are arrested with a DUI find private legal representation. All lawyers in our network offer a free initial consultation and if you hire them, they charge fees to fight your arrest. While not guaranteed, an attorney may be able to generate a better outcome for you (pleading to a lesser charge, possible lower conviction rate, lesser fines). Additionally, an attorney can navigate the complex court system on your behalf. If you still feel you cannot afford an attorney and wish to represent yourself, please consult your state’s low income / free legal aid services.
