“Ask a Lawyer” Program Gives Attorneys a Chance to Stand Out
One in ten American consumers who sought an attorney in the past year hired a lawyer they found on Lawyers.comSM – where 10% represents 5.8 million people.1
To help you get your fair share of these new clients, Lawyers.com introduced a great program to help your firm showcase its expertise in specific areas of practice so your lawyers can stand out from the competition.
The “Ask a Lawyer” program allows attorneys with profiles on Lawyers.com to respond to questions that are submitted by consumers visiting our website. Thousands of questions are submitted to our Ask a Lawyer service monthly in a wide range of practice areas and from every state. These questions reflect actual legal concerns of everyday visitors to Lawyers.com, which attracts more than 28 million users annually.
Law firms can choose a state and an unlimited number of Areas of Practice for which they’d like to provide answers to consumers. All of those answers are archived on Lawyers.com and, if relevant, presented to additional consumers who might submit the same question in the future.
Participating in our Ask a Lawyer program is a great way to establish credibility and raise your firm’s visibility on Lawyers.com, optimize your online profile and even improve your SEO by linking back to your firm’s website. It also provides a unique opportunity to connect with prospective clients who either submit questions to our site or view your answers to their similar questions.
Here’s what participating lawyers have to say.
"Participating in the program has already led to three clients retaining my office… I'm trying to get more lawyers from my office to participate! " Diana L. Anderson, Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks, L.L.C.
"Professionally, I believe it has brought increased visibility to my practice and provided prospective clients with an opportunity to personally evaluate my advice. In my view, the Ask a Lawyer program is a benefit to both those seeking legal advice and the panelists who render it." Jeralyn E. Merritt, Law Office of Jeralyn E. Merritt
