“Should I hire the cheapest NJ DWI attorney for my case?”

Answer: Absolutely not. You get what you pay for, and I can assure you that you will be very disappointed with your results if you hire the cheapest available attorney.

Here’s the truth of the matter: lawyers expect a reasonable amount of money per hour for the work that we do.  Many lawyers bill from $500 to $1000 dollars per hour.  When you hire the cheapest DWI attorney for your case, you are going to get someone who won’t put in the time to research your arrest, go through the calibration records for the Alcotest machine, or examine the intricate details of a case that could potentially have it thrown out entirely.  You will basically be paying someone $1000 dollars or more to show up in court on one single occasion, and plead you guilty to your charges.

That’s absolutely ridiculous, and you easily could do it on your own.  For $1000 bucks, most lawyers won’t even crack open a case file in a DWI charge.

That said, you don’t necessarily want to go with the most expensive DWI lawyer either.  Some of the large firms out there have the name of one major DWI attorney, but it’s 5-10 other associates that actually go out and try the cases.  Everyone needs to get paid, so they have to charge more.  If the all-star spotlight attorney demands $1,500 for himself every time a DWI call comes in, but he still has to pay his associates $2000 in addition to the costs for his receptionists, paralegals, huge office space, and the lease on his Aston-Martin, now all of a sudden you are shelling out $5,000 for a DWI case when you could have found someone just as good for half of that price.

You get what you pay for, but you don’t have to pay for what you don’t need.  The best thing that you can do is make a handful of calls to attorneys, find the ones that are quoting reasonable prices but also seem to have a vested interest in beating your charges and can actually present a strategy to do so.  When you’ve found a good and honest attorney, you’ll probably know it, but don’t be too quick to judge.

If you’d like to talk to a reasonably prices, aggressive DWI attorney in New Jersey, feel free to call my office any time, and I’m more than happy to talk about your case.
