Have You Looked at your Website Lately?
Your website is a key component of your practice, but it’s a missed opportunity if it’s approached the wrong way. Merely having a web presence isn’t enough anymore. According to a recent AVVO study, 31% of legal consumers are finding their lawyers online. It is the virtual doorway to your office and the way that many potential clients will find you.
