Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
The survey reveals that people are turning to the Internet when they need a lawyer or legal representation. The survey is a follow-up to one conducted almost a decade ago in 2005, where only 7% of participants said they would use the Internet first to look for a lawyer. In 2014, however, that number has increased drastically with 38% of participants listing the Internet as their first choice when searching for a lawyer.
This news is not surprising to the team at authenticWEB, who have helped with law firm’s marketing through search engine optimization, designed highly converting websites and created thousands of authentic videos.
“Searching for a divorce attorney, a criminal defense attorney or a personal injury attorney makes sense. What’s amazing to me is we’re seeing our clients get calls for specific practice areas you wouldn’t think people would be searching for on the internet- like ‘insurance defense attorney’ or ‘commercial litigation lawyer’,” said Ian Garlic, CEO of authenticWEB.
If this trend persists, within the next decade people will solely search for lawyers and other service professionals on the Internet, rather than asking friends and family for advice like in the past.
