We Can Do Better Than That

I would love to meet with you!  But first, let me just say that I know being arrested for a DUI is a nerve-racking experience.  I’m sorry you had to go through that.  

If you’re like most of my clients, you’ve got a lot riding on the outcome of this DUI case.  You have responsibilities and pressures imposed on you from all directions.  And now you’ve got to start the process of figuring out how to protect yourself and your family from these allegations.  I’m sure that’s precisely why you’re looking for a consultation:

You need to know what you’re supposed to do now. 

I’ve got to tell you, one of my favorite parts about practicing law is meeting with someone for the first time.  People enter my office full of anxiety, stress, concern, and fear.  They leave my office assured, prepared, courageous, and hopeful. 

That transformation is what it’s all about.  And we want it to last.  We want you to have that feeling of optimism and determination throughout your entire case. 

Ultimately, of course, we want your case to result in dismissed charges.  That’s what we’re working towards.  But you can’t get that without a detailed and thorough plan of action.  What’s more:

You’re Not Likely to Get that in a Mere “Free Initial Consultation.”

After all, you get what you pay for, right?

That’s why I don’t offer “free initial consultations” any more.  Previously, when someone would come in to my office or call me on the phone, I would give him all of the information about how his case would proceed and how the whole process works, etc.  And I would spend as much time with them as they needed.

You know what the result was?  Invariably the person would tell me, “Thank you so much for giving me so much information!  That was so helpful.  None of the other lawyers I’ve talked to so far have given me even half that much information.”  I heard that all the time.  ALL. THE. TIME.

And then it dawned on me: that’s why people end up scheduling so many “free initial consultations” with so many different lawyers–because the information, the help, the advice they were getting in those consultations wasn’t helpful to them.  The lawyers they were seeing weren’t giving them the information they needed.

That’s when I decided to take all the information that I would normally give in my initial consultations and put it all in the Ultimate Information Package on DUI Defense.  Now, there’s really no reason for you to get a “free initial consultation” with any lawyer (including me)—all the info you need is online, in my series of videos.  (Naturally, my videos can’t possibly cover every possible scenario under the sun, but they cover just about:

Everything you need to know right now.

Why did I put all that information in a series of videos?  Because your time with a lawyer shouldn’t be spent going over a bunch of information you can get online.  What a waste!  Instead, your time should be spent discussing you and the specific facts of your case!  

Your Fight to Protect Yourself Starts with Your “Discovery & Strategy Planning Session”

That’s why I offer you a “consultation on steroids”, which I call a Discovery & Strategy Planning Session.  “What’s the difference?” you might ask.  The difference is what happens before the Planning Session that makes our time together much more impactful.

At your Discovery & Strategy Planning Session, I will explain your options, plan out potential defenses, and start the process of creating a defense strategy for your case…

This is when we craft your game plan.

In order to do that, I will first send you a couple items of Client Homework that I will need you to fill out: 

  • The first is an extremely in-depth questionnaire designed to suck the critical information about your case out of your brain and put it in writing. (This isn’t the type of questionnaire you finish in 3 minutes while watching a Chargers game. Remember, anything of high value in life has to be worked for, and make no mistake about it, this is of high value.)
  • The second is a document that allows you to tell me what your goals and expectations are.  (After all, how can any lawyer help you get what you want if he doesn’t know what’s important to you?) 

You will send me your completely-filled-out documents before our Planning Session so that I can take the time necessary to review it carefully in preparation for our meeting.  That way, once you get here, we can make the most of our time together–and you get the most bang for your buck. 

Your Discovery & Strategy Planning Session lasts up to 2 hours.  I’ve found that one hour is rarely enough time.  I want to be as helpful to you as possible and that often takes 1.5 to 2 hours.  I don’t recall any client needing more than two hours for a first-time Planning Session.

You’ll Get  Your Very Own Yellow Brick Road, Custom-Tailored to Your Particular Case

At the end of the Discovery & Strategy Planning Session, you will know where you currently stand, the direction you should go, and the path you must walk to reach your goals.

Isn’t that what you need from your lawyer? 

You’re not likely to get that in a “free initial consultation.”  You only get that result after both parties (you and your lawyer) put in the time and effort required to get the outcome from your consultation that you’re looking for.

During our Planning Session, you will give me a ton of information about the specific facts of your case and what you hope to accomplish.  And I will give you a ton of valuable, actionable information to help you decide how you want to proceed. 

You and I will sit across from each other and go over every single question, concern, doubt, and aspiration you have with respect to your DUI case.  We will map out a plan of action and outline potential defenses.  You will leave my office prepared, assured, hopeful, and ready to carry out our plan. 

That’s what I want for you.  If that’s what you want for you, there are two things you need to do:

  • First, watch the Ultimate Information Package on DUI Defense.  That step is important because it will prepare you for our Planning Session.  You’ll understand the process, what you’re up against, and gain an understanding of the issues involved.  This will serve as a foundation for our discussions during your Planning Session.
  • Second, when you’re done, call me or email me and tell me, “I’d like to schedule a Discovery & Strategy Planning Session.”  We’ll immediately schedule a time for us to huddle, roll up our sleeves, and get to work.

How much do you think that’s worth?  My Discovery & Strategy Planning Session is $800.  But I will knock $300 off and offer it to you for $500. 

$800 Value, But I’ll Put In $300 From My Own Pocket — You Pay Just $500

Please understand that I do not schedule Planning Sessions for anyone who has not already gone through the Ultimate Information Package on DUI Defense.  The reason is because we would have to go over a lot of information that is already available to you for free online.  That would be an inefficient use of both your time and my time.  I’m trying to avoid that.

So, to qualify for this offer, first discover the process you and I will go through to fight your case by downloading the Ultimate Information Package on DUI Defense right now.

Talk soon.

p.s. I almost forgot to mention that, assuming you hire me to handle your DUI case while at the Discovery & Strategy Planning Session, the $500 you paid will be applied to your overall fee.  To get more information about my fees, download the Ultimate Information Package on DUI Defense. 

p.p.s. I will set aside 2 hours of my time for your Planning Session.  That is plenty of time.  You will not feel rushed.  You will not feel worried that you’re taking up too much of my time.  I will be at your service.  Those 2 hours will be devoted exclusively to you and your case—nothing else.

p.p.p.s. My calendar can get pretty busy with court appearances, telephone conferences, meetings with clients, etc.  Better not wait too long to schedule your Discovery & Strategy Planning Session or you might find you’re too late.
