How Much Will It Cost to Retain Your Firm to Defend Me in a Connecticut DUI Case?
Our minimum fee to complete the representation in a Connecticut Drunk Driving defense case would be at least $2,500.00 (and maybe more if there was an accident or you are facing additional motor vehicle and/or other criminal charges). This would often also include representation at the Administrative Per Se license suspension hearing at the Connecticut DMV.
We would give you a written retainer agreement that spells out the details of our attorney-client relationship and our charges. If we spend more time on your case than the amount covered by the minimum fee, we would bill you at our normal hourly rates. In our experience, unless there is a trial or something unusual about your case, the attorneys' fees probably will not exceed the $2,500.00. Sometimes we will also ask that you deposit funds into a trust account to pay for expenses or attorney's fees not covered by the minimum fee.
If you have any questions about this, give us a call. There is no charge for an initial consultation.
