- Cars - If you own your automobile, multiple services in town will loan money against the vehicle.
- Houses - If you own your home, we can put you in touch with loan brokers who can help you refinance your house or get a second loan.
- Personal Loans - Household Retail Services can often give unsecured loans. However, the interest rates are usually very high.Jail TimeIt isn't possible to give an accurate cost estimate for a case before doing a thorough review of the facts; however, an example will illustrate how affordable excellent representation can be.
A person convicted of a single Driving Under the Influence charge, with no prior convictions, can be sentenced to six months in jail and five years probation as well as license suspension or restriction, fines and education.
If someone were sentenced and served the full six months, they would spend 4,320 hours in jail. At minimum wage, without considering overtime, this is $27,000.
Of course, it is rare for someone to be sentenced to and serve the maximum six months. It is also true that during the six months the person would eat and sleep at government expense, but the point is the same: jail is expensive.
In a recent case with the facts as above, we charged $1,500 which is less than 35 cents for each hour the person could have spent in jail.
