Claiming your law firm listing is an important way to streamline your name and brand. There are many law firm directories from local to nationwide listings. According to Mark Homer’s Attorneyatwork.com article, here are some easy ways to get started with claiming your law firm’s directory listings.
Create an easy cheat sheet that you can use for each law firm directory listing. Most listings ask for the same information on each site. Some of the information you should have in your cheat sheet is your law firm’s name, point of contact, local phone number, office address, practice areas, and hours of operation. You might also consider creating a short bio about your firm specifically to use in a law firm directory listing. This cheat sheet will also help you keep track of the directories you are a part of, so that when you have any updates to make you can ensure you are updating all of them.
Start claiming your law firm’s legal directory in larger legal-specific directories. This can help you get started and make claiming your law firm easier by starting with more well-known directories. Here are some of the specific legal directories to claim your law firm:
Claiming your local law firm directories can help you obtain more referrals and potential clients. Google is more likely to pull up local law firm directories for people searching for a law firm close to them. Deciding which local directory to be part of can be difficult. You will need to do your research but here are a list of places to get started: chamber of commerce, local newspapers, or local bar associations. These are only some of the local directories you can claim for your law firm. Depending on the size of the town you live in you might have more options to claim your law firm’s directory.
