What's the easiest way to find the best DUI lawyer? If you've been charged with a DUI or DWI, you know that having top-notch legal representation could mean the difference between probation and jail time.

But, given the sensitive nature of the offense, you probably don't want to ask for lawyer recommendations from your friends or on social media. Fortunately, there are several services that can connect you with a DUI lawyer near you - or near the location where the charges were filed, if needed.

DUI Lawyer Reviews

3.5 stars


Visit Site

Started in Seattle by a tech-savvy lawyer who wanted to make it easier for people to get legal advice, Avvo is part of the Martindale brand family (like several other services we evaluated). Their site includes nearly 15 million searchable legal questions and answers through their free "Ask a Lawyer" feature, so if you have a question about your DUI/DWI you can get preliminary answers from experienced attorneys within hours.

Fewer search results

Avvo returned a much smaller results list when we looked for DUI attorneys in our targeted suburban area. There were only three in our zip code, plus two additional "sponsored results" from our greater metro area. While we really like the way Avvo displays results - letting you filter lawyers by their reviews, how long they've been licensed, and so on - that doesn't do much good when there are only a few to choose from. That surprised us, given that Avvo says that 97% of practicing attorneys in the nation are rated on their site.

Avvo rating

On a more positive note, Avvo does a great job of letting you see some of the most important details about each attorney right from the results list. Not only are they reviewed by past clients, but they also have a rating from Avvo itself. These ratings come from Avvo's calculations of the lawyer's experience and education, any endorsements or awards from within the legal community, and any disciplinary action taken against them.

Handy save feature

There's also a handy save feature where you can keep track of the DUI attorneys you'd like to consider further. Finally, for the listings that are sponsored by the lawyer or law firm (marked as "Ad" and featured at the top of the results list), you've got quick links for their website, for sending a message or giving them a call, and if they're providing virtual consultations for situations where in-person meetings aren't feasible.

Room to improve

In general, the Avvo site is one of the easiest to use, and you'll be able to browse informative, detailed profiles of any DUI lawyer serving your area. But, because this service turned up significantly fewer attorneys near our target zip code - despite being within miles of a major metro area's downtown - we can only give Avvo a slightly-above-average rating.

These referral services allow you to have your case considered by more than one law firm, so that you can choose the attorney that feels like the best fit to represent you. Sometimes you can also read reviews from previous clients and see how the attorneys rank compared with others in your area.

Hiring the right DUI lawyer quickly is essential to building your case and getting the best defense lined up before your court date. However, not all lawyer referral services work the same. Do you want to wait for an undetermined length of time, hoping that an attorney will take your case, or would you rather reach out directly to several pre-screened legal firms?

As you choose the best DUI/DWI lawyer for your case, here are several factors to bear in mind when using a lawyer locator service:

  • Process. Will you be matched with the service's network of attorneys or is it up to you to choose? Can you contact the lawyers directly or do you have to wait for a call or email?
  • Database. How many attorneys can you expect to find in your area? And how many will you potentially be matched with? This is especially important if your case is in a less populated area and you're having trouble finding a lawyer near you.
  • Information Provided. What will you be able to learn about each prospective attorney beforehand? Are there reviews from previous clients? Having a solid profile for every lawyer in the list can save you time, allowing you to get a feel for each one prior to making personal contact. has reviewed and ranked the best DUI lawyer services near you. We hope this information helps you connect with the right attorney to help with your case!
