Episode 248 – Bitcoin and Blockchain – A New Practice Area Opportunity for Lawyers?

Many attorneys may not be aware of a new practice area that is increasingly becoming more important, and that is the legal side of the new Bitcoin/blockchain technology space. Bitcoin, a digital currency created in 2009, and blockchain, its underlying technology protocol, is affecting the storage and transmission of data in many industries, including medical, financial, and identity. Many companies in this arena are fundraising through token sales and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), but regulation has not yet caught up with this technology and fundraising technique. With $1.2 billion already raised in through token sales and ICOs, this allows attorneys the ability to get in on the ground floor of a practice area that is already becoming more popular, including consulting with businesses and future lawsuits.

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.
