As a non-profit organization, Drive-To-Work's fees for services are much lower than private lawyer fees. This is NOT a free service. Administrative fees are necessary to ensure client commitment and to sustain the program.
Drive-To-Work fees are based on the steps and effort required to restore driver's licenses in individual cases. The minimum fee is $250, and these fees are increased based on the number of additional actions (such as court motions). Fees are not based on income levels.
We tell you the amount of all fees for your case – in advance. Initial administrative fees must be paid in full before you become a client and before we can do any work.
When it is time to go to court for a restricted license or other hearing, you pay a supplemental fee, plus any costs of filing and travel.
Drive-To-Work does not provide financial assistance for fines, costs or other expenses. Applicants should be sure they have a job or other financial resources to pay for these expenses.
Our Trust Accounts
Our attorney trust account is available to clients to deposit funds toward fines, costs and other expenses.
Courts do not allow consolidated payment plans for fines and costs. So we can pay fines and costs for clients owing multiple courts, if they sign a fines and costs agreement and deposit funds into our trust account in advance.
