Why aren't more attorneys setting up shop in retail or other settings where clients already exist? Instead, attorneys typically expect consumers to seek out their services when they encounter a legal issue. From a marketing perspective, this doesn't make a lot of sense, especially given that the 2009 Legal Services Corporation "Documenting the Justice Gap in America" report listed the following as reasons people with legal issues did not retain attorneys to help resolve them: they did not know the problem was legal, they did not know who could help, and doing so would be too much of a hassle.
This program gets lawyers to not only think outside of the box for offering legal services in non-traditional ways, but to disregard the box entirely. Our panelist will describe nontraditional methods of client development, including mobile outreach, alternative office settings, and hybrid businesses just to name a few.
