I decided to go into private practice about two years after getting out of law school, and one of the first things I learned is that I needed a lawyer seo, and needed one quickly. Have you ever done an online search for a lawyer? Most people have and I’m here to tell you that it is absolutely cutthroat out there to get your name to show up on the first page of an internet search. There are so many lawyers in this country, many of whom work for themselves, that getting some eyeballs on your presence online is absolutely essential.
Your skills won’t matter if people can’t see you. Sure, you might get a nice practice going after five, maybe ten years practicing and word of mouth gets around about how much of a hot shot you are in the courtroom. I couldn’t wait five or ten years. I needed to get clients immediately or I’d have to go back to Big Law and that is not the place most lawyers want to be. I wanted to be in the trenches helping clients with their legal issues. So that was where my need to use a good seo operation came from.
The problem quickly became finding the right people to help me get those clients. Fortunately, I found a reliable group online who knew exactly what I needed and, more importantly, how to realize it quickly. I need to rise above the omnipresent online dui lawyers and their ilk so people would see my smiling face when they did their search. I was skeptical, to say the least, but that’s because I don’t understand the world of internet jujitsu. These guys do. In no time at all I was getting calls from potential clients looking for help. I don’t know how it happened, but they did it.
