This is the first of many blog posts we’ll be doing showcasing Law Promo’s blog design work, and how each law firm we’ve worked with has put their blog to use. Today we’ll be talking about the Geragos & Geragos Law Blog.
Geragos & Geragos is a Los Angeles-based law firm that works with many high profile clients on criminal defense cases, civil litigation and appeals. Mark J. Geragos is known for his voracious defense and long success record, and has appeared regularly as a guest and legal commentator on shows like “Good Morning America” and “Larry King Live.” He’s also won many awards and recognitions for his work in the courtroom. If you’re interested in seeing the kind of high-profile clients he’s represented, take a look at the Clients page on his website.
Geragos is somewhat of a celebrity lawyer, and his blog provides a unique perspective into his thoughts on current legal events. He writes about local events like the MLB’s rejection of a Dodger and Fox deal in 2012, describing the details in a comfortable voice that is neither sloppy nor pretentious. He strikes a conversational tone and takes the time to explain the event so that anyone can understand. He then reflects on the legal situation, and contributes a few reflections of his own.
Blogs like this are a great asset to a law firm website. Usually, attorney websites are mostly marketing materials, and some visitors can feel alienated by the sales-talk language there. Conversely, a blog exists for the owner to share his or her opinions, and here potential and current clients can gain some insight into their attorney’s mind. Blogs do take time to update constantly and do the research for, but if you do, you will ultimately attract more visitors and engage in enlightening conversation with experts from around the country.
Law Promo believes that blogs are a strong and versatile tool that can help your firm with everything from SEO to conversion. Call today to talk about the benefits and drawbacks of legal blogs with one of our associates.
