6. How much are the fines?

Knowledgeable local Napa DUI lawyers should tell you that a typical misdemeanor DUI fine in Napa County is approximately $2100. However, if the case is reduced or dismissed, the fine exposure may drop sharply; for example, a typical "Wet Reckless" reduction is usually around one-half of the fine in a regular Napa DUI case, or around $1250. A typical minor zero-tolerance infraction DUI case would result in an even smaller fine.

If the case cannot be reduced or dismissed, then in order to ensure that a DUI does not cause an immediate and substantial financial burden on the defendant, the best Napa DUI attorneys always obtain affordable monthly payments as little as $50 per month for our clients if paying the full fine at once would constitute a hardship on you or your family. Of course the best way to avoid DUI court fines is to beat the DUI charges. Consult with a Napa County DUI lawyer about your specific case.


Any result portrayed was dependent on the facts of that case, and the results will differ if based on different facts.
