If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re doing your research on how to hire a lawyer for your DUI, and more importantly, how much you should be spending on a lawyer to fight your case. When you search for a DUI lawyer, most of the top google results will be paid advertising. What many consumers don’t know about lawyer advertising is, it’s extremely expensive. If you “click” on one of the Google lawyer ads, the lawyer is probably paying somewhere between $150-200 for your click, regardless of whether or not you hire them. Client acquisition costs for DUI lawyers is approximately $1,000. For most lawyers who advertise, the only way they can recoup their Google marketing investment is to charge the consumer more for their DUI.
Because our firm is one of the leading DUI law firms in Scottsdale, we conduct anywhere from 5-10 DUI consults a day. From our interaction with potential clients, the average DUI lawyer in Scottsdale charges between $5,000-$9,000. That’s a lot of money! Here’s the good news, our law firm prides itself on being the most affordable firm in Scottsdale for DUI representation. Depending on the DUI, we charge approximately $3,600 and split our fee into affordable payments. Our fee includes the Motor Vehicle Hearing (most firms don’t include this), reviewing the police report, reviewing your toxicology report, watching video of the event, interviewing the police officers and filing pre-trial motions.
Aside from marketing, there are other reasons why some lawyers charge outrageous fees for their DUI representation. We have a six lawyer law firm. Most “law firms” in Arizona have one lawyer. This lawyer is responsible for every aspect of his business – marketing, intake, clients, and court procedures. The reason they charge an outrageous fee is because they want to limit the size of their practice. Don’t be tricked into a hiring a lawyer who wants to “limit” the size of their clientele or holds themselves out as having a “boutique” law firm. This lawyer may not have the same size support staff that a multi lawyer law firm has. This means, their office space may not be as nice, their customer service not as good, and in most cases they may not even have a full time receptionist to answer your calls.
So, you may be asking, how can my firm be one of the lowest priced DUI law firms in Scottsdale and still provide exceptional service? The answer is simple. We have so many Scottsdale cases, we have one dedicated lawyer to Scottsdale Court. Attorney Tyler Steele is at Scottsdale Court every day – and has been a full-time lawyer in Scottsdale since 2015. Why would we need to charge more for a DUI if we are going to be there any way? Consider this, a lawyer’s fee also includes estimated travel time. This means, if you hire a lawyer in Phoenix, Chandler or Gilbert for a Scottsdale case, factored in their quote is the amount of time it takes to travel to Scottsdale. When you hire our law firm, you don’t have to worry about that.
