I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but the Internet is a pretty big deal. That’s why, for lawyers, a strong online presence is more important than ever.
Even if most of your clients currently come from word-of-mouth referrals, it will be increasingly difficult, if not impossible, to acquire new business in the coming years without a professional legal website. Your firm’s website provides potential clients with first impressions of your firm’s practice areas, your skill set, and your demeanor. It can either drive clients in the door or on to the next Google search listing.
However, your website’s job isn’t done once a client has retained your firm. Your clients still need to pay online, share documents securely, and get updates on their case. That is why it’s essential that your practice management software connects with your website. Imagine having your clients retain you, communicate with you, and pay you – all through your website!
