Many people choose a DWI/DUI attorney simply based on the lowest price. Not only can the choice of the wrong attorney cost you your driving privileges, it can cost you more money over time.
A recent article discussed the shocking numbers that your insurance rates can increase due to a conviction. The article states that on average, DUI convictions can raise rates up to 62% nationally. In New Jersey, your rates can rise by up to 54% for the average driver. (Original article here: https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/insurance/dui-speeding-auto-insurance-rates/)
