You have just been released from jail after your arrest for DUI.  You will now be charged by the District Attorney, and you will go to court.  Besides the emotional costs that you are now suffering, there are other costs to prepare for.

The obvious initial costs will be hiring a DUI attorney.  Even if you choose to fight the DUI on your own, there are other costs to expect:  Fines, penalties and surcharges.  The costs of a DUI alcohol treatment program.  The costs involved in losing your license, and in getting your license back.  You may have to install an ignition interlock device.  Your automobile insurance will go up.

What can you do to avoid these costs?  The best way to attempt to avert these costs is to not go it alone.  Hire a qualified California DUI attorney immediately, and try to keep your costs limited to the legal fee.  Hopefully, if you are successful, the other costs will go away.
