Growing a business is a challenging endeavor. When you’re a practicing attorney, you must take considerable precautions when advertising your services. Because of this, many law firms turn to lead services to help them make contact with individuals or businesses who may be a good fit. One of the services used by law firms is 4LegalLeads.com.
In this 4LegalLeads review, we’re going to give you an overview of how they operate, which practice areas they cover, and some information about the cost of their service.
What Do You Get When You Pay for Leads?
4LegalLeads.com has been around since 2001. They offer exclusive leads for lawyers and law firms, meaning they don’t give the same lead to two or more lawyers or law firms.
4LegalLeads provides real-time leads curated in two ways – live phone calls and form submissions. If a consumer calls their information center seeking information, they can be transferred directly to your law firm. Lawyers and firms using the service are in a queue, and the calls get routed to who is next in line to take the call. Phone leads include targeting options, including practice areas, locations, and even the hours that you’re willing to accept these calls. Note that you will be charged for phone leads even if your voicemail picks up.
4LegalLeads also provides leads collected from a web form. Because these are considered real-time leads, they are not re-distributed or manually distributed. When a lead comes in, it gets sent to the next available customer in the area.
Web and phone leads must be purchased together and are not offered separately.
