The Cost of Conviction
Don’t ask whether you can afford an experienced drunk driving defense attorney. Rather, look at the cost outlined below and ask whether you can afford not to hire one.
The following is a list of minimum fees, fines and costs that you will incurs in addition to the penalties outlined in MA OUI Laws if you are convicted of Operating Under the Influence.
Probation Supervision Fee (12 months) $780
State Fee $250
OUI Victim Fee $50
Head Injury Fee $250
Victim Witness Fee $50
License Reinstatement Fee $300
Minimum Fine $500
Program Fee $574
MINIMUM COST OF CONVICTION: $2754
**BE AWARE THAT THIS IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT FOR A FIRST OFFENSE CONVICTION. SUBSEQUENT OFFENSES HAVE SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN FEES, FINES AND PROGRAM FEES.
REMEMBER this financial loss does not consider the impact a conviction may have on your job and career if you lose your license after a conviction.
An experienced drunk driving attorney can either avoid or minimize this financial crisis.
