Not only did LegalMatch get me clients directly, but the clients I obtained through LegalMatch referred me to their friends and family as well, which brought in even more business. LegalMatch allows an attorney to grow their practice at their own rate. LegalMatch is really the perfect setup.
Approximately three years ago, I signed up for LegalMatch when I first started my Family Law firm. The opportunity to obtain clients through LegalMatch gave me the ability to get my firm up and running at a steady pace. LegalMatch allowed me to grow my firm faster than I expected. LegalMatch helped me expand my clientele. Not only did LegalMatch get me clients directly, but the clients I obtained through LegalMatch referred me to their friends and family as well, which brought in even more business.
I think LegalMatch’s best quality is that it enables attorneys to reach out to clients searching for either consultations or representation. Even when the client starts out searching for legal advice, the site enables the attorney to get their foot in the door. With this simple introduction, I can give the client a feel for my firm, my practice, and how I run my business. I can assess if a potential client is interested in representation. If LegalMatch was not in existence, I would not have access to the exorbitant number of people in need of assistance; it provides a massive outlet that I wouldn’t have known otherwise.
I can understand how investing in a new system to generate more clients might intimidate attorneys. LegalMatch gets a great return on investment, so the cost of LegalMatch provides a reward that far outweighs its risk.
My advice regarding getting the most out of a LegalMatch membership is to immediately communicate with the prospective clients right away; my suggestion would be to pick up the telephone and call them the old fashioned way. I find that the clients I speak to over the phone, perhaps within the first hour or so after they post their case on LegalMatch, are the ones that retain me most frequently. Once I talk to the person on the phone, he or she always wants to schedule a consultation right away.
It is imperative to reach out to the prospective client as soon as possible. The more time that passes, subsequent to his or her posting, the less likely they are to be retained. You want to get back to them right away; when their post looking to find a lawyer is fresh in their minds. They will be ready and eager to discuss their situation.
LegalMatch has worked very well for me. At one point, I received so many notifications about new clients needing my assistance from LegalMatch that I literally didn't have time to go through them all. I now have things set up to respond quickly to maximize my benefits.
Like most attorneys, I was apprehensive of LegalMatch at first. I get contacted all the time from different sites seeking paid membership fees. They often ask questions like, “Do you need clients?” and “Do you want more clients?”. It made me weary and doubtful of what would come from LegalMatch.
I haven’t seen another site like LegalMatch where attorneys can reach out to the clients. LegalMatch places the opportunity at the attorney’s fingertips versus waiting for a prospective client to click an ad on social media or a search engine. LegalMatch allows an attorney to grow their practice at their own rate.
LegalMatch is really the perfect setup.
