We guarantee that you’ll be much better with us in your corner than you would be on your own!
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a DUI Attorney from Utah Law Aid?
Attorney fees vary greatly from case to case. The single biggest expense in a DUI case is a full-blown DUI trial. Therefore, you can naturally expect that a DUI case that goes to trial will cost more than a DUI case that gets settled. The reason DUI trials cost more is that they involve much more work. Additionally, in many cases, Utah Law Aid DUI attorneys will employ the services of one or more expert witnesses to help our clients win their cases.
For example, a forensic toxicologist can discuss evidential breath testing and blood testing. Utah Law Aid can also get forensic toxicologists to talk about the effects and manifestation of alcohol in the human body. In addition to a forensic toxicologist, we may decide to hire former police officers who train other police offers how to conduct DUI investigations, including standardized field sobriety testing. Fees for a DUI jury trial with these types of expert witnesses can easily exceed $10,000 to $15,000.
Your Case Probably Won’t Go to Trial
Fortunately, not every DUI case will go in front of a jury of your peers. Utah Law Aid aims to either win a case or get a reduced charge, such as impaired driving, first. If this fails, then we can commit to a jury trial. If cost is a big concern for you, you’ll be happy to know that the majority of DUI cases are settled, reduced, or dismissed.
