I think it is also important to note that our clients, who mostly concentrate in personal injury and criminal defense work, have not seen any decline in work.
Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) March 25, 2009
The economic slowdown has hit the legal profession, with thousands of layoffs at the nation's biggest firms, but it isn't all doom and gloom for companies that target law firms, says the CEO of a Raleigh, N.C.-based marketing and Web consulting firm.
"Companies that spend the time and have the expertise to properly develop Web sites and Internet marketing campaigns for law firms are doing well," says Dale Tincher, the founder of Consultwebs.com, Inc.. "I think it is also important to note that our clients, who mostly concentrate in personal injury and criminal defense work, have not seen any decline in work."
Tincher was quoted in a March 16 National Law Journal article that focused on the slowdown in the legal industry. The article noted that a trickle-down effect was being felt by vendors that service the legal profession.
Consultwebs.com was singled out as one of a handful of companies that seems to be bucking the trend. Tincher's company, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, has added two employees this year and opened a second office to handle growing demand.
Tincher's company targets small and midsize law firms, not the large firms that have been taking big financial hits in recent months.
The success of Consultwebs.com is tied to its comprehensive approach to Internet marketing, which includes Web sites, search engine optimization, deep content and videos. That approach has yielded a greater return on law firms' advertising dollars than traditional Yellow Book advertising, Tincher says.
Consultwebs President Lisa Vaughn adds, "We've consistently shown that we are more effective in connecting lawyers with potential clients than the methods that they once relied on. "That's why we're growing through the very best kind of advertising -- word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients who tell other law firms about our services."
Consultwebs has added six new clients since the start of the year and also stepped up online marketing efforts for several existing law firms.
Based in Raleigh, N.C., Consultwebs.com is a law firm marketing and Web design company that offers a full range of Internet services, including complete Web sites, content services, search engine optimization (SEO), legal directories, specialty sites, press release distribution and law firm videos.
