Are You Part of This Elite Group? Why Lawyer Ratings Are Important
If you're the average, hard-working professional, a quick shudder at the thought of a colleague's self-promotion is relatively normal. There are few exceptions. One of them is when the achievement truly sets the person apart from others — and that distinction should be noted, as well as promoted.
Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review RatingsTM and Client Review Ratings are the hallmarks of legal accomplishment. If you are rated, 2013 is the year to celebrate that success.
What can ratings do for you and your law firm? They can inspire a potential client to take that leap and hire you. Clients need to feel confident in their decision and not look back, or worse yet, explore the competition. Ratings enhance your credibility, validate your credentials, highlight your firm's expertise and aid prospects in making that informed decision faster.
How much do peer and client ratings really factor into the legal selection? A great deal.
Nearly 6 in 10 consumers seeking an attorney in the past year checked ratings and online reviews; of those, 65 percent state ratings and reviews were influential in their decision process.*
There are several cost-effective ways to promote your ratings to ensure that you get the most out of your investment, and we provide a wide range of promotional vehicles to publicize your elite status:
