Have You Been Charged With A DUI In Florida?

The Hudson Law Office is pleased to offer our expert defense services to residents of Sarasota and Key West.

Being charged with a DUI can be incredibly stressful. Given that these are criminal charges, law enforcement treats you as such – making it hard to feel like you have any legal agency in the situation.

The important thing to remember when you are facing a DUI charge is that you are not alone. By working with a qualified DUI defense lawyer, you will have access to the legal advocacy you need to effectively resolve your case.

There can be hefty fines and even jail time associated with DUI charges. Legal representation will play an important role in making sure that you are treated equitably by prosecutors so that you don't receive an unjust sentence that doesn't reflect the true nature of your case.

Steps You Can Take To Find The Right DUI Lawyer For You

Finding the right DUI lawyer to represent you is an important part of your case resolution. The best way to do this is by searching for a lawyer in your area that offers specialized DUI representation. From there, you will want to contact the attorney for an initial consultation.

When speaking with a legal professional about your DUI case, it is crucial that you explain the facts of your situation in detail. This will help the attorney to offer accurate counsel and formulate an effective strategy for your particular set of circumstances.

If you retain a lawyer to manage your case, they will gather all the pertinent evidence in the days preceding your court date so that you have a developed plan of action for your DUI case.

Factors To Consider When Hiring A DUI Lawyer

Considering the qualifications of your DUI defense attorney is an important part of your search for legal protection. The most important thing to remember is that experience is crucial. Having a lawyer that has experience in this legal area – and an in-depth understanding of the DUI laws in your area – will be invaluable to the successful defense of your case.

Having a knowledgeable attorney file a DUI case on your behalf will enable you to navigate the legal system with confidence and clarity.

Wondering How Much A Lawyer Charges To Handle A DUI Case?

Managing a DUI case can be complex. Depending on the situation, there can be many court dates and a plethora of evidence to comb through. Because of this, there is not usually a flat fee for most DUI cases.

There is, however, a “base fee” that attorneys charge for DUI cases. This covers everything except a jury trial. No matter how many court appearances or counseling sessions you have, the base fee will cover the time your lawyer takes to construct and advise you on your case all the way up to jury selection.

At The Hudson Law Office, our base range ranges from $7,500 and up – depending on the nature of your case. The best way to get an accurate quote for your case is by setting up an initial consultation with the lawyer of your choice. This will provide you with a rough estimate of how much a DUI lawyer will charge to effectively represent your DUI case.
