What Every Attorney Needs to Know About Local SEO

In order to grow your practice and get more cases, attorneys need to focus on their perfect client. Typically, perfect clients are local to a law firm’s office location, which is why it is important that lawyers focus much of their marketing efforts on local search engine optimization (SEO).
