USLegal Partner Program – Direct Leads to Grow Your Practice
We are continuing registration of attorneys for our new USLegal Partner Program launched last month by US Legal Media, the attorney services division of USLegal, Inc.
The Program will provide partner attorneys access to direct leads from US Legal’s targeted consumer traffic of around 4 million monthly visitors seeking legal help. Our Partner Program also features a new, highly functional website for your practice, converting the standard stale brochure site into a feature rich, traffic generating, search engine optimized, commerce driver. Our partners will be among the few attorneys nationwide to have a website of this stature, transforming what has been a marketing expense into a revenue generator.
Registration is being offered to a limited number of attorneys per state initially and will close after all slots are filled. As a member of our Partner Program, you will secure access to leads and a cutting edge web presence in the legal industry. Give us a call for information on being included. Founded by attorneys, and with 15 years of experience with on-line marketing in the legal industry, we understand your business and know how to monetize your marketing investment.
