Episode 283 – Practice Areas That Are Positively Affected By COVID19

Episode 283 – Practice Areas That Are Positively Affected By COVID19

In this podcast, Richard offers advice on how your practice will be affected by the CoronaVirus.  He reminds listeners of the importance of flexibility in the face of the CoronaVirus, advising criminal attorneys, for example, who focus solely on DUIs to consider opening themselves up to general criminal defense and/or looking into expungements.

He establishes that actually the need for lawyers will go up and explains why for several practice areas, including:

  • Criminal Defense: because of the closer quarters, domestic violence cases will most likely be on the rise. Furthermore, job losses may increase crimes.
  • Family Law: again, because of the stress and increased time together, divorces may be on the rise.
  • Estate Planning: because of the CoronaVirus, more estates will have to be administered and this may engender more conflicts.

He touches on additional practice areas and also tell listeners about the changing competitive landscape for lawyers normally dependent on in-office selling of their services. To help listeners up their phone-selling game, Speakeasy has developed a program on video chatting. The program will be released Monday, March 23rd. It includes some great video-conferencing innovations, e-signing, and docu-signing techniques, and information about speak-a-book.

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.
