Some areas of law, like personal injury, charge fees on a contingency basis. However, in Georgia, it is against the law for DUI attorneys (or criminal defense lawyers in general) to work on a contingency fee basis. DUI lawyers must charge a flat or hourly rate for their legal services.
At the Law Offices of Mr. Lawson, many different attorney fee arrangements are available. The unique factors of your case will determine the fee, so it is impossible to provide a fee quote without knowing the details of when and where the case occurred. Other issues that affect the lawyer fee include prior criminal history and driving record, whether their where children or passengers in the car, whether their was an accident, and what motions and hearings need to be held. A fee to negotiate a guilty plea is usually less than a fee to take a case to a jury trial. Contact Cumming, GA DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today.
