Many firms may not have the resources or time to handle every project required for prosecution of a case. Outsourcing legal support work allows your firm to spend time on more pressing duties, to better allocate available resources in response to deadlines, and to free up time for family. At John Cord Law, we can provide you with specialized legal research, brief writing, technological trial presentations and even overflow trial work.
Modern jurors expect more during trial than a lecture. Years of television, blockbuster movies, celebrity trials, Facebook and YouTube have conditioned jurors to expect more flash and variety. If your opponent provides it, you will be at a serious disadvantage. If you provide it and your opponent doesn’t, you will have a leg up. Our Expert Trial Architecture services will help you to craft your opening statement, direct examinations, cross-examinations and closing argument with these jurors in mind. We can create PowerPoint presentations that use your case documents to tell the story–with a minimum of bullet points.
Social networking is a great way to keep in contact with past clients, to ensure that they remember you the next time they need a lawyer. We can help set up your firm’s social networking pages, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Avvo. If you have a blog, we can set your social networking to automatically update every time a new blog post is written.
The practice of law gets in the way of blogging. Perhaps you started a blog a year ago, and it still has only a handful of posts. Maybe you see friends who regularly get cases from the internet, thanks to their regular blogging. Blogs should have a minimum of two posts per week to create effective internet traffic. Ideally, your blog should have four to five posts per week.
If you don’t have time to write regular blogs let us help. We are experienced in creating quality Search-Engine-Optimized (SEO) content specific to your fields of practice. We will write blog posts incorporating the latest news and legal opinions. We will write about any subjects that are important to your practice and to your clients. Our blogs posts are personable, informative, and have links to authoritative sources, including your website. We write it, you approve it, and it goes on your on your website under your name.
One of the ways that Google and other search engines finds and ranks your website is to look for fresh and unique content. Your website should be a living document–constantly updating, changing and growing. It is only then that your website, and your firm, will get the Google respect that it deserves. We can do this by writing blogs and creating new webpages. For more information, contact us.
