Criminal Defense Leads

Criminal Defense Leads are real-time and exclusive. These leads are requests for legal help involving a criminal defense. We recommend you take as many criminal defense practice areas from below as possible although most attorneys usually opt OUT of “Victim of a Crime” and sometimes “Appeals”.

In the event that a prospect makes an error and confuses their civil issue of a crime against them with criminal law, you can submit a lead return for credit to your account.

For Criminal Defense, we’ve now added the following language before the final request for contact on our internal ad campaigns:

FINANCIAL QUESTION: “Criminal Defense is a category that almost always requires an upfront retainer to be paid to a law firm. How likely are you to hire a lawyer if they can assist you with your issue?”
We let them rate their degree of interest!

If it’s too low (the bottom being “I can’t afford anything and need to be connected to free resources”) we will redirect them to services in their state and do NOT send you the lead. This one change is going to screen out a LOT of leads which have been wasting both parties time.

CATEGORY CLARIFICATION: We’ve also seen a lot of errors in the average person seeking legal help not understanding what is and is not criminal defense. We have now included completed language that asks them to further clarify their criminal law need:

  • “I am accused of a crime, but no charges have been filed against me.”
  • “I have criminal charges, but have not been convicted.”
  • “I have been convicted of a crime, but want to APPEAL.”
  • “I have been convicted of a crime, but want it EXPUNGED from my record.”
  • “I am a VICTIM of a crime”.

This allows us to better classify leads into “Criminal Defense”, “Criminal Appeals”, “Criminal Expungement”, according to your choice to accept or remove these subcategories. Some law firms buy all these categories, some hate appeals, etc… now we have better control over connecting firms to the leads they want.
