A strong local presence allows potential clients to find you in location-based searches such as “car accident lawyer near me,” or “divorce lawyer close by.” Optimizing your local listings and maintaining a solid and active online presence increases the likelihood of your firm showing up for those queries, in turn increasing the number of leads that reach out for help.
