For the past 60 years, the National Association for Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) has been on a mission to support criminal defense attorneys, create educational seminars on criminal law and justice, increase the accessibility of a range of resources, and ensure that every individual is able to exercise their right to due process. Kyle O’Dowd, associate executive director for policy at the NACDL, and Jessica Stepan, associate executive director for strategic marketing at the NACDL join the podcast to discuss the most recent and relevant topics in the area of criminal law and a few programs that are just around the corner in 2019.

There are a variety of NACDL membership categories, including regular private practice, military, judge, an associate member, all of which receive the benefit of having access to an amazing community and a pool of the best lawyers in the profession, as well as online communities for networking and relationship building. A discussion of the impact of race on criminal justice and the most recent research about bias in the criminal justice system will be at the forefront of Race Matters 2, an NACDL program slated for January 10th and 11th of 2019 in Los Angeles, CA.

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 10 years.

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

  • Helped over 180 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 507 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

Before you decide to invest in your marketing, it makes sense to first request your complimentary, custom, no obligation video website review.
