We are a Texas startup connecting clients with attorneys
through our network of community-focused attorney directories.
Each attorney network has its own unique Instagram page. When a member publishes a new listing or updates his/her listing, we’ll publish an update to that network’s followers about it.
Each network has its own unique Facebook page. When a member publishes a new listing or updates his/her listing, we’ll publish an update to that network’s followers about it.
Reply to Inbox Messages
When a client sends an attorney an inbox message, the attorney can simply reply to the email to communicate with the client and later retrieve that from her member dashboard area.
RSS Feed Integration
Attorneys have a new field in their member profile to add their RSS feed URL. Then anytime an attorney publishes a new article we will share a tweet about that article with the followers of that directory’s Twitter profile.
Twitter API Integration 1.1
If an attorney has an attorney profile (free or paid) on one of our directories (ex. Chineselawyers.com) and publishes a tweet on her law firm’s Twitter profile with a related hashtag (ex. #Chineselawyer, #Chineselawyers), we will retweet her tweet on the directory’s Twitter account. Attorney must have her law firm’s Twitter URL listed in her profile.
Targeted Banner Advertising
We now have a feature to allow banner advertising by attorney directory by state/country by practice area. If you are interested in purchasing a banner spot please reply to this email to get a quote.
Member Dashboard Area
In Q1 of 2019 we published the first draft of our member dashboard area. Lawyers can now submit new membership requests, modify their listing, and review performance of their listing through the dashboard.
Customer Support Knowledge-Base
We published a knowledge-base on how to get the most out of your membership(s) including answers to most frequently asked questions.
We’ve integrated our software with Zapier so that you can automate moving of lead’s information from our system to yours (ex. CRM).
Lead Qualifying Questions
We added a feature to ask qualifying questions from potential clients who fill out our intake forms. Questions depend on the case’s practice area and location. Attorneys can then see the answers to these questions before deciding whether or not to purchase the lead.
Introducing the Legal Global Network
We introduced the Legalglobal.com network where we will list all our member attorneys in an attempt to create the largest directory of attorneys around the world. All listed members will go through our license verification process.
1,000 Leads a Month Milestone
We crossed a new milestone of generating 1,000 leads a month.
Moving forward our member attorneys can publish articles on topics related to their legal field. We are also starting a new series on “Inspiring Lawyer Stories” that we are super excited about.
Introducing Our Pay Per Lead Service
In August of 2018 we introduced a new pay-per-lead service to our member attorneys. Potential clients submit their case through our intake forms. Attorneys receive an email with the case description. if they are available and interested in the case, they can make a one-time payment and receive the potential client’s contact information.
Twitter API Integration
Every directory has its own unique Twitter profile. We’ve now also connected our software with Twitter API. When a member publishes a new listing or updates his/her listing, we’ll send out a Tweet to our followers about it.
Yelp API Integration
Our PRO and Sponsor members can re-publish their latest reviews from their Yelp page.
SendGrid API Integration
Email is a powerful communication tool and SendGrid is a top provider of transactional email technology. We’ve integrated our software with their API to ensure our emails are delivered to attorneys and clients.
