  1. Hi, I hope you don't mind, but my son Corey was given your name by Patty Koepe. And as his mom, I told him I thought I would look you up and try and see how you handle things with her clients and courtroom and what your specialty is. I'm so glad I did because you just warmed my heart with your story and the way you treat people. I'm retired Navy, and my father was also retired Navy. The way we were brought up was to Be as honest and fair to people and live by the Golden Rule. That being I know my son will be giving you a call because it involves his little boy Ian. And I applaud you on such a successful career. Thank you for reading this. Pamela Secrist

  2. John Smith - You really said it all. "WORK HARD AND BRING VALUE TO THE CLIENT." Get out there and really show your value. Agree, John. All the fancy marketing in the world won't help if you don't have that mission as your core. Regarding print Yellow Pages, however.If it works for you, fine. However, as a printed directory, the Yellow Pages is a dinosaur. YP.com is better and you can get a free listing. Best thing is to take those bucks and drive more people to your web site. The majority of people find businesses first through a search engine such as Google.

  3. I liked the article but like others of the genre it's rather fancy for me. Here's my marketing plan. 1. a cheap ad in the phone book and some more cheap print ads here and there around town. 2. signing up for local bar referral program 3. my cheapo website dude updates the website. 4. I throw some content up there once a while to freshen it up 5. volunteer for some charities I like ..... But the thing that actually gets me repeat clients and referrals is this: WORK HARD AND BRING VALUE TO THE CLIENT. I find that is about all the marketing the average solo lawyer needs. I'll leave it to the hotshots to hire "consultants" and gurus and the like.
