June 15, 2023 – Powerful Marketing Tactics for Small Law Firms: How to Attract More of the Right Clients

Presented by Mary Ellen Hickman of Hickman Consulting Partners

One of the biggest challenges for any small law firm is how to attract the right clients for your unique practice, and to keep those clients steadily knocking on your door. During this program we'll discuss how to identify the best clients for your practice, where to find those clients, how to attract more of them, and what to charge. I'll then show you how you can tailor this to fit your stage of growth: a new firm, a fast-growing practice, or a well-established firm. We'll talk through concrete examples from different types of practices—including yours, if you'd like—and end with an open Q&A. You'll leave with a practical plan that you can implement immediately.
