You want to engage prospects with questions and comments on your legal services. Doing so could make the difference between you representing them or not.
Second, you might want to see if some of your clients who’ve you represented are willing to do a testimonial for you.
Such testimonials can carry a fair amount of weight with consumers. When they do, you could see more prospective business head in your direction.
Those testimonials could be on a local TV station, in the local newspaper, and even appear on your website. No matter where they go, they can be a difference maker when people are deciding which law firm is best for them.
