As a new associate or solo practitioner you need to let people know that you're out there. And while buying an ad spot on an overhead Blimp is tempting, you might be looking for more useful, online ways to announce your legal services, expertise, and offerings.

It is an online directory of attorneys across the U.S. hosted by FindLaw, a Thomson Reuters business--the leading provider of

You can learn more about services to help your firm build a professional website, create helpful online videos, and ways to form a comprehensive marketing strategy involving a team of experts at your disposal.
