Google Reviews for Attorneys
Google reviews seem to be the hardest reviews to get for lawyers. Usually every law firm has some reviews from Lawyers.com, AVVO or some other legal related site. Some lawyers have 30-40 reviews at those sites and ZERO at Google. Getting reviews should be part of your overall Internet marketing strategy for lawyers.
Google is often the first point of contact between a customer and a lawyer. We plug keywords into Google to help us with anything we want to know. And if we want to find out how one law firm compares to another, we Google to find out about other people’s experiences.
Recognizing the need, Google has rolled out its own reviews feature, which allow users to write reviews directly on the business’s Google or Google Map listing. Since Google reviews are obviously favored by the search engine and show up upon every relevant result, if your business wants to have a good presence on Google, the best place to start is by getting more Google reviews.
Having a bunch of 5 star reviews will look better when a person does a search for your law firm and they see the stars show up next to your law firm name in the Google local search results.
Get Reviews Organized from ALL Sites
Having your reviews show up from Google is the top priority, yet lawyers will get reviews in a lot of other places including AVVO, Martindale & Lawyers.com, Yelp, Facebook and a few other legal review sites.

If you a law firm like Stroudsburg PA Newman Williams, you will probably have a lot of reviews from a lot of different websites, along with reviews for both your firm and for your partners. Some lawyers like Asheville, NC Personal Injury Lawyer Lakota R. Denton, have more then 70 Google reviews and mostly have google 5 star reviews.
The first reviews people will see are the Google reviews, because if someone Googles your law firm by name, they will find your Google my business listing and that will show your Google reviews. Yet on your website, you can decide what reviews to show and how to show them. Many lawyers such as Portland real estate lawyers McEwen Gisvold dont have any Google reviews, but plenty of other reviews from Lawyers.com and AVVO.
