Zola Creative: Innovative client acquisition solutions to carry you into the future

Over the years, we’ve worked with hundreds of criminal defense firms. We know that criminal defendants are frightened about losing their freedom and are often embarrassed about their situations. Many search online for a criminal defense attorney, one with a proven history of success trying criminal cases. To ensure your criminal defense firm is found by potential clients, a digital marketing strategy needs to focus, and deliver, on two key objectives:

(1) Getting found in the search results
(2) Creating a website with high quality content that embodies your legal knowledge, experience, and professionalism, conveying that you can achieve successful outcomes.

Zola’s expertise in law firm SEO and digital marketing will boost your online visibility, enabling potential clients to find you by searching the web for ‘criminal defense attorney’ in a particular location, by a specific crime (e.g. ‘DUI attorney’, ‘drug crimes lawyer), and other relevant search terms. The goal is to incentivize potential clients to visit your website, learn about the charges they are facing, and then contact your firm directly. Zola’s SEO and marketing strategies will optimize your website for top placement, allowing you to generate new leads and grow your practice.
