The Coffey Firm offers FREE DWI cases and confidential consultations.
What is a Free Consultation?
A free consultation is where we get to know more about you and your case. In short, during this free consultation, we will gather information, discuss scheduling, learn more about your life situation, and discuss the details of the representation and its costs.
Some of the information we will gather and discuss is the court handling your charge, whether it is a felony or misdemeanor charge, and what degree charge your charge is (i.e., Class B, State Jail, 3rd degree, etc.). Sometimes, if your case has not been filed yet, we will discuss some of the potential positive and negatives of each court, such as whether the judge is strict on interlock requirements or whether the judge allows for community service to be waived.
We will also discuss scheduling at the free consultation. In other words, we will verify whether your case has been filed yet, whether the court has set your first court date, and (if the charge is a felony) whether a grand jury has indicted your case.
We will also get to know more about you and your life situation. You are more than just a case number, so we want to know about what happened during your arrest and gather some humanizing information. In other words, we want to know more about your family, any military or “first responders” service, and your background.
Finally, we address the elephant in the room and discuss the details of representation, including the fee. The Coffey Firm offers payment plans so we can work with you during this stressful time. At the free consultation we will discuss the payment plan, or the *possible* payment plan if the case has not been filed yet (as some courts are more strict than others about allowing multiple court dates).
