The Cost of a DUI Conviction

According to a study conducted by the Automobile Club of Southern California, a first-time DUI conviction can cost as much as $15,649. This calculation takes into account state and local fines, legal fees and other penalties as well as increased insurance costs. This estimate does not include other potential costs, like having to miss work for court dates, or even losing your job due to a DUI conviction.

This high cost of a DUI conviction makes it extremely important to hire a skilled lawyer to defend you against these charges.
