Since you have not gotten a local response in 8 days, assuming this is still timely, nationwide plumber cost for urban areas usually ranges from about $80-150/hour except in extremem cost union-controlled areas like NY and Boston where it can reach $250/hour.

For Phoenix I would expect something around $100-125/hour - an above-slab leaks fix should cost about that as the minimum charge, below-slab about $300-500, both NOT including any slab or drywall repair, which would typically run about $150-300 each for a normal repair.

Remember that water pipes should NEVER be embedded in concrete - and where they have to pass through the slab, if that is opene3d up, should be encapsulated in foam pipe insulation well-taped so the concrete water cannot penetrate to the pipe as it will eventually corrode copper, and regardless of pipe type should be foam wrapped to prevent wear on the pipe from expansion and contraction as water is used - can wear right through a pipe in some years.
