In the end, the most important criterion in choosing a lawyer to represent you, in your DUI case, is trust. Kevin Trombold and Blair Russ offer a free initial consultation so you can ask them about their legal experience and credentials and make sure one of them is the right fit for you. During your free consultation, Kevin or Blair will review the facts of your case, inform you on pertinent DUI law, and outline several lines of defense you could pursue in your DUI case.
The Cost of a DUI Defense
The time an attorney must invest in a vigorous DUI defense always depends greatly on the facts and circumstances of a case and the prior criminal record of the accused person. For that reason, a good lawyer will want to have an in-depth conversation with his client before quoting a price. Kevin Trombold and Blair Russ always outline every possible cost their client could face during the first discussion of the case.
The total cost of a DUI defense can range from three thousand dollars to ten thousand dollars, depending on whether or not a costly expert is hired to testify about the inaccuracies of the breath machine and whether the case goes to trial. More serious Class A felonies such as assault and homicide are more expensive.
In order to keep their fees fair and affordable, Kevin and Blair have made a conscious choice not to advertise in the yellow pages. Clients sometimes assume that the firm with the largest yellow page ads will have the greatest resources, but in fact many of those firms are forced to charge higher rates and take on a high volume of cases in order to support their expensive ads. The majority of Kevin and Blair's cases are referred by other lawyers and former clients.
The Law Offices of Kevin Trombold accepts VISA, MasterCard and Discover debit/credit cards and payment plans are also an option.
