Lawyers Directory Topic: Advice for adding Lawyers profile to all lawyers directory or lawyers database?
Why lawyer should not blindly add their profile to all lawyers directory or lawyers database? I would always recommend lawyers and law firms to add their profile to as many as lawyers directory or lawyers database, and I would strongly recommend the same with certain conditions. For the branding and client’s visibility stand point it’s good to have your profile everywhere in the directories. Here I would like to point out the conditions, 1. You need to look at the credibility of the directory :- Add only if the directory is reliable and they don’t misuse your profile. 2. Do no openly mention your phone number and email in the directory as it is :- Because it can access anyone from public easily and use it for commercial purpose. Also there are email and phone gathering crawl engines which would gather your private data to their commercial purpose.
There are many lawyers directories following the above conditions and they block accessing your email id and phone number from the public. http://www.pathlegal.com/ is one of the popular attorney directory in the word where they hide your email id. Phone number can only access by filling a user detail and which would protect you from profile miss utilization.
