How Much Does A DUI Actually Cost You?

Let's say you get charged with a DUI, you decide you don't need an attorney and you end up with a conviction. How much is that actually going to cost you monetarily? Never mind the stress and lost time from your life and loved ones, you are looking at a pretty substantial chunk of change - as much as for a pretty decent used car!

Many states require first time offenders to purchase an ignition interlock device. That alone is $310 right there! Add on court costs of up to $1500, $600 for DUI driving school, reinstating your license ($150), getting your car impounded for two days ($600) and your increased insurance costs afterwards of about a grand, you are looking at around $3500. Not to mention the inconvenience of not being able to drive for over half a year.

You need an experience attorney to fight for your rights and your savings!  If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and experienced legal defense.
