EPISODE 380 – A Speakeasy Christmas Carol | An Important Legal Marketing Lesson From Ebenezer Scrooge

Christmas is just around the corner, and with this beautiful season comes the ability to reflect. How are we treating others around us? How can our businesses better serve our clients? For attorneys, this presents a valuable opportunity to observe their legal practice at a deeper level – giving their firm a chance to grow into the best version of itself…

This episode follows the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, Esquire, a cold-hearted lawyer who was known far and wide for his contemptuous treatment of clients. He hated his legal practice and his clients. Therefore he refused to market his firm or invest in his personal brand.

The potential clients in town with complex and lucrative cases avoided Mr. Scrooge’s office at all costs. Instead, they sought out the attorneys who promoted themselves as experts – leaving Scrooge with the scraps.

One fateful Christmas night, Ebenezer Scrooge learned an important lesson that changed everything. The changes he made as a result greatly improved the reputation and productivity of his firm.

What wisdom can you gain from Mr. Scrooge’s story? How can you apply it to your own legal practice? Listen now to see for yourself!

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 12 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.
