According to Google, companies with completed online directory listings (listings that include office hours, photos, reviews, ratings, product lists, and other relevant information) are viewed 270% more reputable than businesses with incomplete online directory profiles.
Did you know that when potential clients are shown wrong information about a company, 73% of them lose trust in that company?
Businesses lose over $10 BILLION per year due to wrong and incomplete information online. This makes sense - incorrect contact information sends your clients somewhere else. You definitely won't get the business if clients can't find you (or even call you).
You should put as much information about your legal practice as possible into all of your online profiles. This includes enhanced media such as photos, videos, virtual tours, office hours, attorney profiles, and more. We have a help area here that will walk you through setting up your profile.

Featured listings are placed above other listings. Being at the top of search results should dramatically increase potential client traffic to your profile and ultimately (if you have optimized your profile correctly) to your Law Practice. According to Google, the first page of search results gets 75% of the clicks.
Are your clients in a rush? Are they unsure about what to do, how to respond, and need legal advice immediately? If premium placement gets you one new client per month, is it worth it?
Contact the team at Localsync, and they will help you synchronize and lock all of your location data with these general directories.
It is best practice to control your firm's (and your image) in all directories possible.
In addition to potentially reaching that new client through a different marketing channel (local directory, micro specific professional directories, etc), each professional directory gives you a valuable backlink, helps improve your SEO (Search Engine Optimization), online presence, and search rank results in Google, Bing, and other search engines.
Smaller, focused, professional directories and dedicated legal-specific directories increase your digital presence and increase your chances of landing that new client.
