A DUI charge is overwhelming. Not only is there a criminal court date, but there is also an administrative license suspension that needs to be appealed. If you are facing a Kennesaw DUI charge, it is important to consult with a DUI attorney right away. But how are attorneys fees calculated?
Some legal issues, like personal injury cases, are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that the lawyer is paid a percentage of what he or she wins. However, it is against the law in the state of Georgia for criminal or DUI defense lawyers to work on a contingency fee basis. They must charge a flat or hourly rate to their clients. Most charge a flat rate for representation, so you know what the total cost will be when signing up.
A DUI attorney can help you get your Kennesaw DUI charges reduced or dismissed, represent you in a jury trial, file motions on your behalf, and represent you in an Administrative Law hearing in regarding restoration of your driving privileges. At the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson, different types of arrangements are available regarding the structure and pricing of attorneys fees. The specific factors of you case will determine the fee. Issues that affect the lawyer fee include whether this is you first or a subsequent DUI charge, whether there was an auto accident stemming from the DUI, whether there was a child in the vehicle, the status of your GA driving privileges, what motions need to be filed, etc. A fee to negotiate a plea bargain is less than a fee for a completely contested case that includes a jury trial. DUI lawyers can be hired specifically for the purpose of the 10 day DUI appeal letter. Payment plans can be arranged and credit cards are accepted. Contact the Kennesaw DUI lawyer Richard Lawson 24/7 to discuss an attorney fee arrangement on your particular case.
