Anyone have any recommendations on marketing companies for duis? What companies that will do all the marketing and have a lead's name and number emailed to me? Any other dui practitioners want to talk privately let me know your email and we can talk privately. I have had luck with a couple companies. In a small flyover area.

Your best bet is just a website with a page that outlines the DUI process and penalties. You sprinkle in a few scare tidbits in so they want an attorney and you're good to go.

It's amazing how many click from out DUI info page over to our contact us page.

Somewhat off topic: lawyer buddy of mine always thought he should buy the ad space right above the urinals at the bars.

A firm around here must have sponsored a local bar in order to have their firm name and contact information printed on the back of the pint glasses. Savvy marketing.

One attorney I know had coasters printed with his name on it. All good ideas. Seems a little time consuming.

Absent the gimmicks, I still think SEO and a top quality website are among the best investments. If people do not know a different attorney personally or receive a recommendation to different one (nothing you can do to lure those lost clients away), most will type "criminal attorney in City X" or "DUI attorney in City X" into their phone or computer. You want your name to be at or near the top of the search results. You then need a website attractive enough to maintain their attention and which will easily direct them to your contact information. That's how you will close the bulk of your clients outside of personal referrals.

The kind of clients you want are not kind of clients you will get from paying for leads. The people who need to hire an attorney who has contacted them from a lead list will not be able to pay the number you want. After X amount of leads saying they can only pay 60 percent of your number you will start to accept them to justify the cost of the lead list.

Do a bang up job on the ones you DO have and that will result in referrals from clients and other attorneys.

Just last night I was at a bar (always a great place to hand out cards) and the guys next to me, who did not know each other, both had records. They also both had lawyers in the past who they did not feel "went to bat" and they paid accordingly.

I worked for a firm who paid for leads, and the clients who used those leads had a ton of other lawyers also vying for their business, and would always bargain shop before signing a retainer. Make a name for yourself and hopefully you will have a few ex-clients who are good feeders. Just friday night, a client who at sentencing was told by the judge "your lawyer pulled the mystically rabbit out of a hat" calls me telling me a friend's boyfriend just got locked up. This is the 3rd case he has sent me in the last 2 months.

If you work hard and have your client's back, you will justify your fee to your client. Win or lose, they will be thankful and will send you clients. You cannot win every case (especially in criminal law), but clients remember someone who fights for them.
