Michael J. Evans, Lawyer & CEO of American Legal Alliance, on Law 3.0.

When I began practicing law over thirty years ago, I did what had been traditional for many years: I began as a lawyer with little practical legal knowledge or skills, and learned how to actually practice law by watching and helping my mentors.

As soon as I passed the bar exam, I took a job as an associate lawyer at a small trial law firm that represented both civil plaintiffs and defendants. I stayed with the firm a little over three years before I felt qualified to quit to go into my own solo practice.

I can’t imagine what my law practice (and life) would have been like without the years I spent working under two really great mentors at my first law firm.

Attorney marketing survey shows importance of Internet marketing for attorneys

I posted an article yesterday on my attorney marketing blog about a recent LexixNexis survey of 4,000 U.S. adults about the ways they find lawyers. One significant finding was that 57% of people who looked for a lawyer in the past year had used the Internet to help choose a lawyer. This was the same percentage of people who relied on advice from family and friends, which was the way most unrepresented people found lawyers before the Internet.

The new blog post lists even more findings, and contains a special, limited-time offer for free Internet marketing consultations for the first 10 law firms to request a consultation. The title of the post is Attorney marketing on the Internet reaches 57% of people searching for an attorney, study finds.

I think you’ll find some new and interesting insights in the post. Please check it out. And if you’re interested in the free, 15-minute, no pressure consultation, email me at [email protected]


Attorney Advertising

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. The hiring of a law firm is a serious decision that should not be based on advertising alone.
