The average cost for just pleading guilty is at least $5,206.14, not including your attorney fees, or how much your insurance company will surcharge you. That could be an additional $1,000.00 or more a year for three years.
In addition, you need to seriously keep possible jail time in mind. For a first offense, you probably won’t get any jail time. But if you ever get arrested and convicted for a 2nd Texas DWI offense, you’re looking at mandatory jail time of 3 to 30 days. Not too pleasant a picture, is it?
On the other hand, if you fight and are successful in keeping a DWI conviction off your record, you can avoid these charges, plus the raise in your insurance rates. Getting the best DWI defense attorney for your case will ensure you are well represented and sort through all this for you. Let a skilled and experience DWI lawyer at Boatwright & Hamilton work for you. Over the years, we’ve helped many people just like you fight their DWI arrest charges.
