I got a DUI a couple months back, and the judge gave me a plea deal which would make my charge a misdemeanor. Whenever I got the DUI, I didn’t have my license at the time. I did not know that I had to have a clean drug test to the court before a month in advanced, and there was still marijuana in... Read more »

Expert witnesses are very expensive. It is not uncommon they charge thousands of dollars because they are rare given the many years of education and many more years of experience in their field of expertise.
Yes, you really should be discussing this with your attorney if you have been charged with a DUI. If you have not hired an attorney yet, and you have been charged with a DUI, you need to hire an attorney now. DO NOT hesitate.
