Not sure about lawywers, but I have a campaign that I used to bid at .06 and get a decent amount of clicks. The minimum now is .20 and I have bid that since they started this on a keyword. The price has not dropped. I think that is because anyone wanting to be in on this word must bid .20 so its a self fulfilling event. It will always be high, so yes google has found a way to jack up prices without officially saying so. No more .05 minimums in all campaigns. Only super high CTR will get you cheap prices again. And even then you have these bigger bidder underneath you with their minimums pushing on you.
