DUI Lawyer Cost Georgia

By: William C. Head, Attorney in Atlanta, Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

DUI Lawyer Fees – Why Top DUI Attorneys in Georgia Charge More

When facing a DUI arrest in Georgia, one of the biggest decisions the accused individual has to make is which DUI lawyer to hire. To answer the question, “How much is a DUI attorney?” a full explanation of how different law firms approach DUI defense is needed. Then, we can discuss how supply and demand for the best DUI attorney controls that cost.

Great results are what all accused impaired drivers in Georgia should seek when they hire a criminal defense lawyer in Georgia. We know this because no celebrity, TV personality, or sports star goes to a DUI court without the best DUI attorney they can find, since money for legal fees is not an object.

Lawyer fees for DUI in GA are a mere pittance to these financially secure individuals, whose careers can suffer a multi-million-dollar impact from bad publicity from a criminal conviction, or lose pay for missed games in mid-season, for a professional athlete.

At all costs, they seek to avoid jail time for drunk driving and do not want their ability to travel out of the United States restricted. A few athletes have potential DUI immigration issues, especially in situations for professional athletes.

Why It Costs More for the Best DUI Lawyer in Georgia

Not surprisingly, the top DUI attorneys in the state charge more for their services than the average DUI lawyers or cheap DUI attorneys. Supply and demand control professional services just like they control the cost of platinum, gold, rare earth minerals or salaries for a high-demand CEO.

Three primary reasons exist for this:

  1. The best DUI lawyers in Georgia tend to be hired by people wanting to FIGHT their cases, to be able to keep driving, and not have a DUI conviction on their record FOR LIFE. These contested cases take far more effort and time than simply negotiating a favorable guilty plea.
  2. The average number of available hours that a DUI defense attorney will work is 2000 hours in a year, and as years pass and experience builds for the best DUI attorneys, their hourly “value” increases each year, as in most professions. With complex cases that ALL require extensive pretrial motions and battling at every level, these drunk driving lawyers may only be able to handle 60 cases for their clients annually, and spending an average of 30 or more hours per case, compared to a DUI plea attorney handling several hundred, and spending an average of 4 to 6 hours per DUI case. This extra time and effort costs more, for the best lawyers.
  3. Being able to focus on the clients who MUST win, and doing everything possible for them brings a premium cost. But, the legal services of the best drunk driving defense attorneys are available for both celebrities and hard-working citizens with TOO MUCH TO LOSE to not aggressively fight their DUI arrest.

What Is the FULL DUI Defense Cost?

The stumbling block for most people is knowing the full DUI defense cost. Many DUI attorneys who advertise their legal services quote low legal fees, or “one-price-covers-all” DUI costs. Accused citizens with any knowledge of the legal system, knows that this sounds “fishy.” They can smell either a “bait-and-switch” scheme, or shoddy work from a cheap DUI lawyer.

While this “single, low price” sounds attractive, common sense tells you that all DUI cases are NOT alike. Some DUI arrests with police evidence of performance on one or more field sobriety test exercises, and possible breath alcohol test evidence need expert witnesses to be able to achieve the best outcome at trial.

Plus, in DUI accident cases, our DUI law firm can spend 40% more time than non-accident cases, as we try to get car insurance coverage for and injured parties. One of our goals is to do what we can to protect our clients from a civil judgment that can bankrupt them.
