No one wants to be convicted of drunk driving simply because they could not afford to hire a skilled DUI lawyer. If you've been arrested for driving under the influence and you're wondering how much your average DUI attorney costs, the answer isn't simple. All attorneys price their services differently. At The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs, we offer a variety of payment plans so that everyone can gain access to the defense that they deserve.
Unfortunately, many people do not hire an attorney to defend against their criminal DUI charges or an attorney to represent them at the DMV hearing because they think they can't afford it. Private attorneys seem way out of reach to many people, but this firm wants you to know that hiring an Orange County DUI lawyer from The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs is doable.
When your freedom and your reputation are on the line, you cannot afford to go with a public defender at the criminal hearing or forego the DMV hearing. The main reason this firm would advise against using a public defender is because of their heavy caseload. In Southern California, there are far more criminally accused individuals than there are public defenders. Many public defenders are spread far too thin and therefore cannot offer the quality of representation that private attorneys can.
You can represent yourself at the DMV hearing should you choose to request one, but this firm also advises against going this process alone. The administrative hearing, although not a criminal court hearing, is very important as the outcome of this case will determine the fate of your driver's license. The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs encourages you to come in today to discuss payment options and how much a DUI attorney would cost you.
