1. Use a good photo
Show off your best side by uploading a professional-looking photo of you to your profile. Looking sharp will go a long way in enhancing your credibility and trustworthiness!
If you need a new photo taken, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you with it.
2. Tell a compelling story about you in the About section
Think of the About section as the opening statement for your lawyer profile. Who are you and what can you do for your clients? Start making your case on why people should engage you for their legal matters.
Pro tip: Write the About section in first person instead of third person, i.e. “I specialise in estate planning…” instead of “Mr Legal Eagle specialises in estate planning…”. Doing so instantly makes you sound more approachable.
3. Showcase your clients’ glowing testimonials of your work
Positive reviews on your profile give viewers a major confidence boost in your capabilities. Don’t be shy to ask clients provide testimonials after the matter has concluded. You may be surprised by how many will willingly oblige!
Your clients may directly submit their reviews to the Reviews section of your lawyer profile (do provide them with the link). Alternatively, you may submit their reviews on their behalf. If you do so, we may request for documentary proof that you had received the review from your client.
While clients are required to provide their name, email address and contact number, only their name will be publicly displayed. We accept client names which have been changed, or shortened to just their initials, for confidentiality reasons. We also require clients’ contact details as we may contact them to confirm the legitimacy of their reviews.
4. Expound on your strengths in the Featured Services section
The Featured Services section is where the meat of your “submissions” will go. While what you say about yourself in the About section is meant to apply to your practice as a whole, the Featured Services section is for you to go deeper on why people should engage you specifically for matters in your field(s) of practice.
Have you had experience handling a variety of matters in your field(s) of practice (what kinds of matters are these)? Do you offer fixed fees in respect of certain services? Or do you strive to offer each and every client the personal touch? Don’t be shy to elaborate on the strengths of your practice in the Featured Services section.
