Case Study: Reaching the Right Clients

Attorneys want the phone to ring, signaling a steady stream of clients. But what happens when you don't just want a bunch of cases, but the right ones? What if you're looking to grow, but within a specific market?

Use Your Expertise to Gain New Clients

As a lawyer, you have a unique set of skills and knowledge. In your practice area, you've developed enough confidence and wherewithal to become trusted by peers and clients. If you're a Super Lawyers listee or Rising Stars selectee, you have even more evidence of a top-notch reputation.

Making the Most of Your Super Lawyers Directory Listing

Did you get selected to a Super Lawyers or Rising Stars list, but the magazine in your state doesn't publish for a couple months? Now is the time to stake your claim in the SuperLawyers.com directory, the quickest way to spread the news about your selection and persuade potential clients to contact your firm.

Does Your Reputation Meet The "New Normal" Standards?

Gone are the days when an attorney's sole source of business relied upon word-of-mouth referrals from friends and family. More and more consumers of all kinds rely on opinions and experiences of people whom they've never met to provide trusted insights. Couple that with heightened competition from other firms and do-it-yourself legal options, and the challenges to stay relevant mount.

Super Lawyers Answers the Call

The process of hiring an attorney can be a daunting one. No built-in referral network, little idea of what things should cost and perhaps uncertainty as to whether you even have a case. And what happens when emotions and catastrophic injuries enter into the equation?

What It Means To Have Authenticity on Social Media

How do potential clients see your firm? There's a predisposition amongst legal consumers that attorneys sit in their ivory tower, lording from on high. So while many lawyers are easily accessible, sometimes prospects don't view it that way. It's difficult to hurdle this barrier many consumers have, but doing so will help your firm seem trustworthy and compassionate.

Get Consistent with Your Firm's Online Presence

Consider for a moment that your primary doctor refers you to a chiropractor in your area. When you visit the website the URL shows www.hopkinschiropratic.com. Upon poking around a bit you learn the business is actually named Hopkins & Sims Chiropractic. Next you visit their Facebook page, where instead of talking about chiropractic services the majority of the content is centered on acupuncture. In addition, you notice the phone number on their website doesn't match the Google business listing. Would this turn you off to the business as a whole and would you continue looking for another chiropractor?
