attorney social mediaIn the 21st century, most people spend a significant amount of their lives online, and much of this time is spent using social networks to interact with others, share updates about their lives, and learn about issues that are important to them. This presents attorneys and law firms with a great opportunity to connect with their clients. By understanding the best ways to use social media in conjunction with other strategies, including listings in directories such as Elite Lawyer, attorneys can build a positive reputation and establish themselves as knowledgeable and experienced in their field of law.

Social Media Tips for Lawyers

Social media is a great way for an attorney to build and maintain awareness of the services that they can provide to clients. They can directly engage with prospective clients, while also providing thought leadership regarding legal issues that may affect people. When using social media, lawyers will want to:

  • Maintain a consistent posting schedule - Regular updates to different social networks can help an attorney stay visible in people’s social media feeds, ensuring that they will know where to turn if they need help addressing legal issues.

  • Share helpful information - Lawyers can make a variety of different types of posts, including infographics or videos that inform people about the laws, links to news stories or articles that discuss legal issues, and updates about the cases they have worked on.

  • Link to their website and blog - Social media is a great way to generate traffic to a law firm’s website, and attorneys will want to make sure people know where to go to get information about a law firm’s practice areas and how they can contact a lawyer for legal help.

  • Respond to comments and questions - Being able to directly communicate with people who need to address legal issues can help an attorney demonstrate that they are knowledgeable in their field and have the knowledge and skills to help clients address different types of legal matters. In addition to responding to people’s questions, lawyers can join conversations, add insight to discussions, and let people know about their legal options in different types of cases.

  • Demonstrate awards and recognition - Social media is a great way for attorneys to show that they are qualified and experienced. An attorney can add their Elite Lawyer badge to their social media profiles, letting people know that they have been recognized as highly skilled and dedicated to providing the best possible services to their clients.

Madeline Gendreau 2021 Elite Lawyer Scholarship Winner

Elite Lawyer is pleased to announce that Madeline Gendreau has been selected as the winner of our Spring 2021 Scholarship program. Madeline was chosen out of more than 100 students who sent in video or written essays. In order to be considered, qualified applicants needed to have a current GPA of at least 3.0 and submit either a 500-word essay or a two-minute video presentation that answered the following question: What positive change are you working to bring to your community in the new year? After submitting a considerate and compelling application, Madeline will receive $500 to put toward her undergraduate degree. She is a sophomore in the Honors College, double majoring in Environmental Sciences and Geosciences with a minor in Climate Studies at Boise State University. 

Bringing a Positive Change to Her Community

Even at a young age, Madeline always knew she wanted to make a difference in her life by helping others who are in need. With a spirit of giving instilled by her parents and grandparents early on, she helped improve handicapped access at her church and delivered meals to those in need. Using her influence as the current Miss Boise and her skills as a competitive swimmer, Madeline recognized a need within the community based on statistics that Idaho has the second-highest rate of accidental drownings among children under age 5 in the country. This is partly due to the fact that Idaho has over 100 miles of irrigation canals located across the state.

Working with a local swim team and other organizations, Madeline offers free or low-cost swim lessons to those less fortunate in Boise and the surrounding area. According to Madeline, it is an ideal way to connect with younger kids who need to learn water safety awareness through life-saving skills as well as a healthy and active lifestyle. “Throughout my volunteer experiences as a young girl and my passion for helping others, I am determined to bring a positive change to my community,” Gendreau stated. 

After graduation, Madeline hopes to work in NASA’s Climate Division to further study carbon in the environment and understand how carbon stores are changing as the Earth’s average yearly temperature increases. In addition, she would like to attend law school and become an environmental lawyer specializing in climate law and environmental justice. Ultimately, she intends to run for the United States Congress and assist in writing climate and environmental legislation.

There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people’s lives all over the world. Local government officials issued stay-at-home orders in an effort to slow the spread of the highly contagious virus. In addition, non-essential businesses were closed temporarily, while other companies allowed employees to work remotely from home. Despite these restrictions, individuals may still have important legal issues that need attention. Attorneys are considered essential, and although law firms have remained open the last six months, they had to alter the way they do business. In order to adhere to health and safety guidelines, law practices across the United States are now using technology like never before to meet their clients’ needs. Whether a couple is considering a divorce or creating their estate plan, they may be able to complete them virtually with the help of a skilled Elite Lawyer.    

Digital Options for Addressing Legal Matters

A law firm’s Web presence is more important now than ever before since those who need legal help are likely starting their search on the Internet. With social distancing still in effect in many states, attorneys are now utilizing digital technology to stay connected with their clients. Online scheduling platforms like Calendly and similar programs allow potential clients to make appointments or arrange initial consultations to discuss their cases. Being listed in a reputable legal directory such as Elite Lawyer can also be a tremendous benefit to enhance a firm’s reputation.

While some courts have opened back up recently, many may still be closed. In response to the closures, certain legal proceedings are now being conducted online. A virtual divorce can be completed online through teleconferencing or video conferencing. This allows couples to legally end their marriage without leaving their homes, which can save them time and money in traveling to and from the court building. For example, in Illinois, the process may begin by filing a petition for dissolution of marriage online. Many people are embracing new technology such as Zoom, FaceTime, or Google Meets instead of meeting in-person to resolve issues such as parenting time or the division of property and assets. In many high-conflict divorce cases, a couple cannot even stand to be in the same room, so resolving issues virtually can make for a less contentious process.

In this digital age, people use the Internet to search for everything, from restaurant menus to buying a vehicle, and even finding an attorney. Promoting yourself online is essential these days to have a successful practice. Whether you are trying to boost your online presence, connect with potential clients, or improve your online reputation, digital profiles are a critical part of being found on the Internet. Many attorneys and law firms are members of online legal directories. These resources can be invaluable tools for locating legal professionals who practice in certain areas of the law. The Elite Lawyer directory contains a listing of exceptional attorneys in numerous practice areas. It has grown since its inception in 2018, expanding to include outstanding attorneys from all 50 states.  

Elite Lawyer Directory

Elite Lawyer is a directory and rating service that awards and recognizes attorneys all over the United States who have displayed extraordinary competence in their practice area and who have been acknowledged by their fellow peers in the legal community. The Elite Lawyer directory provides a comprehensive and credible resource for attorneys and a user-friendly directory for consumers who are looking to hire a highly respected lawyer in their geographic area. 

Elite Lawyer uses a rigorous selection process to ensure that all attorneys listed in our directory have demonstrated excellence in the practice of law and a commitment to their clients and their communities. Selection as an Elite Lawyer shows that an attorney is among the top-rated attorneys in the United States and has the experience and dedication that will ensure their clients' legal issues are handled satisfactorily.

Tips for Creating a Professional Profile

A first impression can go a long way in determining a future relationship. This applies to many areas of life, including a profile related to your career and professional achievements. When someone needs legal assistance, he or she may turn to the Internet to find an attorney. That is why it is crucial to have a clean, concise, and pertinent profile so potential clients will want to hire you. Here are a few ways to make a professional and enticing profile:

  1. Take a professional picture: A clear, professional-looking portrait of yourself is much better than a candid shot or selfie that you take on your own. A photographer can adjust the lighting and recommend the best poses, clothing/attire, and background to produce an eye-catching and complimentary profile picture.  

  2. Include accurate information: Your profile on a legal directory should contain important information about your credentials, as well as your practice areas, office locations, phone numbers, email addresses, and anything else that might make someone who is looking for legal help want to hire you.  

  3. Provide interesting tidbits: A little personal information can go a long way in making you seem relatable to prospective clients. You do not need to disclose in-depth details about your family or personal life, but you can include hobbies or any interests outside of the law. 

  4. Keep your status updated: It is important to continually monitor your profile to make sure it is accurate and reflects any updates or changes to your qualifications, such as new Bar admissions or recently published works.
