We have helped a number of lawyers in Toronto and Vancouver set up effective, mutually beneficial Referral Chains™ with lawyers in complementary practice areas to refer work among each other.
Sales Training for Lawyers, partners and associates helps turn initial consultations (ICs) into signed retainer agreements.
Law Firm Websites
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
At The Legal A Team, we start the process of building Law Firm Websites with Search Engine Optimization (SEO). In fact, we specialize in organic Search Engine Optimization. This is the better way to build websites for law firms so they get found on Google, allowing even very small law firms or solo lawyers to compete.

LAW FIRM PUBLIC RELATIONS
Media Relations for lawyers and law firms is about getting lawyers interviewed in newspapers, magazines, websites, TV, and radio. At The Legal A Team, we get our lawyer and law firm clients in the media regularly. No other public relations agency or law firm marketing agency gets more news coverage for its clients. Click on Relentless Results for clients. And, Client Testimonials.
We provide Media Training to our lawyer and law firm clients as well as ongoing Media Coaching and preparation before each interview, especially a television or radio interview. We help our lawyer clients with lighting, wardobe, props, and shaping the message with "sound bites with substance."
Public Relations for law firms is about establishing a great reputation before clients and prospects even need your legal services. Legal public relations is about establishing, promoting, protecting, and sometimes salvaging the reputation of a law firm.
Public Relations for lawyers is about:
Advocacy and Thought Leadership that point the way for stewardship of the legal profession;
Writing articles, to share your views and legal expertise;
Writing White Papers to show how the legal profession can change and adapt in the future;
Speeches and presentations;
A law firm crisis is about responding to the media even when you don't have all the facts, about not looking evasive, and about answering THE questions asked, A law firm crisis can make or break your law firm. A law firm crisis will put you suddenly in the media for all the wrong reasons.
The Legal A Team has handled many crises over decades including: the named partner of a law firm who embezzled client funds and law firm partnership dissolutions.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Jana understands the cybersecurity space and how to communicate it to our clients and prospects so it is compelling.
Every week, I get 2 or 3 calls from much bigger PR agencies, wanting to pitch for my business.
I have been working with Jana for more than 10 years. She is the only PR person I trust.
When I started, I had zero media presence. Since The Legal A Team has acted for me, I have had numerous print and radio appearances, have been quoted in print and have had television appearances. Jana is very good at what she does and I recommend her without hesitation.
