Los Angles DUI Attorney Cost
How much does a good DUI lawyer cost?
The price of hiring a professional DUI defense attorney to help you fight your case in the Superior Court and at the Administrative Per se hearing varies between practitioners. It is not uncommon to hear that some lawyers will charge as little as $500.00 to represent defendants in court. On the other hand, it is also possible to hire an attorney who values his services extremely high and to pay $10,000.00 or more for even pretrial representation. Typically, it is not advisable to hire attorneys on the low end of the price range mostly because they will be either inexperience or not motivated to litigate the criminal case to get the best possible result for his or her clients. On the other hand, on the high end of the prices ranges, the attorney might be expensive simply because he or she is passing the high overhead costs to the clients.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO WIN DUI CASE
DUI cases can be won even when police tests blood alcohol level and it is above the legal limit. In our practice we are able to achieve not only dismissals of all charges and acquittals in trial courts, but we are also able to negotiate dispositions that will save our clients their driving privileges, their freedoms, and their moneys. While we negotiate criminal case dispositions, we also try to negotiate results with the least criminal record, while being extremely informative to our clients and aggressive in the representation.
Most Los Angeles DUI cases are very fact specific and involve multitude of clues and field sobriety tests that the arresting police officers requested suspects to do. The police can for example stop a driver suspected of a DUI without a good reason and might lie in the police report to help their case. We are able to fight such these cases through motions to disclose previous instances of lying or through motions challenging legality of the stop. In other cases, the police might decide that a specific person was the driver of a vehicle and is therefore guilty of a DUI. We are often able to convince the prosecutor that they do not have sufficient evidence to proceed to trial and get a dismissal of DUI charges. Lastly, the police will often use unreliable scientific methods and techniques to measure blood alcohol level of drivers suspected of a drunk driving in Los Angeles. Experienced Los Angeles DUI Attorney can often points out to the prosecutors and judges the unreliability of the scientific method used and to show flaws in math used by the government’s experts in determining blood alcohol level at the time of driving. In short, we aggressively fight judges and prosecutor every step of the way in getting exactly what are clients will be happy with.
