The
Challenge

Lawyers need to pick and choose their cases carefully to maximize the value of their time and help clients get the results they desire. One of the drawbacks of a positive reputation is an oftentimes unmanageable influx of leads — some good and some bad. The Rickman Law Firm needed to find a way to cutback on low value misdemeanor leads while simultaneously increasing the quantity of high value criminal defense cases coming their way.

The
Solution

Leverage launched an SEO campaign utilizing search terms selected on the basis of their potential value as a lead. Since The Rickman Law Firm wanted to increase the quantity of leads related to federal and felony criminal cases, our team developed a strategy geared toward delivering highly researched, monthly SEO content that targeted users browsing these topics. This helped narrow their conversion funnel to restrict low value leads and boost the overall volume of qualifying leads to record levels.

The
Results

As a result, The Rickman Law Firm experienced a 52% increase in total visitors and a 119% increase in leads generated. Not only did they reduce the amount of time spent dealing with low value cases, which afforded them more time to satisfy their clients, they were also able to bring in more high value cases such as those seen on the local news. Since first engaging with Leverage in 2017, their office has more than tripled in size.
