Integrated Law Firm Marketing Strategies for Western Michigan

The Western part of Michigan is mostly rural, with a few larger cities such as Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. In the bigger towns, the competition is heavy, especially within common practice areas such as personal injury and family law. In the rural markets, there is competition from lawyers in the larger cities who are looking to expand, and you need to be hyper-focused on building a strong local presence to effectively compete.

FindLaw brings 20+ years of exclusive focus on legal web marketing to help Western Michigan attorneys become more successful online. Our cutting-edge integrated lawyer marketing programs provide all the tools necessary to build a customized solution that is flexible and adaptable to the needs of each client we serve. Premium law firm websites (FirmSites), responsive mobile FirmSites, attorney blogs, social media and pay per click (PPC), lawyer SEO, law firm web videos, and countless others form a powerful combination that positions you to vastly expand your clientele and more quickly grow your practice.
