About Richard Jacobs

My name is Richard Jacobs, and I’ve discovered quite a bit about the plight of solo practitioners and small, 2-5 attorney firms like yours these past 14 years.

I’ve come to understand the unique challenges in marketing ethically and effectively that attorneys face because I have:

  • Helped over 250 attorneys author their own practice area book and become the ‘implied expert’ in their practice area
  • Helped hundreds of attorneys successfully navigate Google’s search algorithm changes, growing their websites from 2 potential clients calling a month to 4+ calls per DAY for some clients.
  • Interviewed and promoted over 1200 attorneys nationwide, in practice areas such as:
    • DUI / DWI
    • Family Law
    • Criminal Defense
    • Bankruptcy
    • Auto Accidents
    • Social Security Disability
    • Slip & Falls (Premises Liability)
    • Real Estate
    • Estate Planning / Probate
    • Wage and Hour Claims
    • Expungements / Post Conviction Relief

Richard is the author of 15 books published on Amazon, Kindle and Audible.com
