Deliver Your News to the World Surveys Bar-Goers About Their DUI Arrest


It would be strange to think that people who’ve had a previous DUI arrest would be hanging around a bar, but they do, according to a recent survey done by

“We sent out two of our guys with a stack of five dollars bills each to the local bars to find people who’d been arrested for DUI” says Richard Jacobs, marketing director of

“It makes sense that people would return to the scene of the crime, and we were right. It was easy to find multiple people in each bar, on each night that were happily willing to accept $5 in exchange for their tales of DUI woe.” laughs Richard Jacobs.

What were the results of the survey that cost $200 and captured the thoughts of 40 people? Well, they weren’t too surprising, but insightful for any DUI attorney that is looking to attract and retain a solid client base.

After tallying the data, it was clear that several strong themes ran through all of the survey results, leading to the belief that people have universal feelings about what makes a good DUI lawyer and what makes a bad one, and they’re listed here:

• A good attorney actually cares about their clients and doesn’t treat them as cattle waiting for the slaughter. Every single person surveyed was happy with their attorney only if they felt like they were respected as a person and not talked down to, degraded, or treated like a number.
• People are very impatient for the court process to be over with as fast as possible. Although a typical DUI case can take 4 months or more, a vast majority of people felt as if their attorney ‘didn’t get the case resolved fast enough’. Conversations with knowledgeable drunk driving lawyers show that the longer a case takes, the better the typical outcome for the client, however cases seem to weigh upon client’s minds so heavily, they are begging for them to resolve quickly.
• Although it takes a lawyer’s time, a free initial consultation is a critical decision-making necessity for most survey respondents. Those that felt pressured into choosing someone often felt that way when they were forced to pay a fee just to talk to an attorney – i.e. they felt it was better to stick with the lawyer they’d already paid instead of take a chance with a different one, but most resented their decision.
• People are desperate for an attorney that has actual trial and courtroom experience, and someone that will aggressively defend them. There were 2 types of DUI attorneys that fit this description, however the ones that falsely proclaimed to be aggressive were despised when the client felt they didn’t truly care about their situation.

“The survey results sent an extremely clear message about what’s important in a DUI attorney and what’s not, and they were fascinating (and fun) for our staff to collect” notes Richard Jacobs.

Those attorneys that wish to better their practice and acquire more clients would be well advised to take advantage of’s free listings by visiting the website. Attorneys that hold the beliefs and practice the ‘best practices’ as described by survey respondents may acquire significant increases in business from this new directory.
