From Humble Beginnings to #507!
Each year, Inc. compiles a list of the fastest–growing private companies in America. We are so pleased to announce that Amicus Creative Media made the 2014 list, coming in at #507! We are so grateful to all of our amazing clients and partners who have supported us along the way.
Amicus Creative was founded in 2006 by Fred Cohen, a New York trusts and estates attorney who was looking for a more comprehensive and affordable online marketing option for his firm. When he couldn’t find one, he set out to build a complete website system that wasn’t focused on profit and locking attorneys into long-term contracts. Instead, the focus was on the product which blossomed into our industry-leading Site Manager and most importantly, white-glove personal service that just isn’t found with the corporate giants that at one time ruled the legal marketing industry. At its start, Amicus Creative had just three full-time employees and a few dozen clients. The company shared space with Fred’s law practice and was what most would consider a scrappy startup, opting not to invest in fancy office space or swag to hand out industry conferences. Instead, everything went back into strengthening our offerings and delivering more to our clients.
Fast forward seven years, and while much has changed, so much has stayed the same. We now have 17 full time employees and we did finally move (not because we wanted to but because we needed more space to accommodate our growing team). Our client base has also grown exponentially; in fact we now serve over 800 law firms across the country. Our values and mission, however, has never strayed from our early days. We remain committed to providing our clients with cutting edge online marketing solutions and delivering personalized service to each and every firm we serve.
While this Inc. 5000 announcement reminds us of our growth, it also fuels us to continue to innovate, push the envelope and provide even better service to the clients who put their trust in us.
To everyone who has played a role in our success, thank you, thank you, thank you! We look forward to continuing to help our clients propel their practices to new heights.
