    In this legal podcast, Debbie Williams, the Chief Content Officer and Co-founder of a content marketing agency, and host Patrick Carlson, JD, LLM, discuss best practices and common mistakes when marketing on social media, who you should trust to control the channels, and a few tips to improve your professional social media presence.

To ensure your firm’s success, position yourself with proven legal marketing strategies, secure law office software, and sophisticated, client-friendly closing techniques to turn your consultation into a long-term client.

    In this legal podcast, Michael Chasin, CEO of Lexicata, and host Patrick Carlson, JD, LLM, discuss why law firms need to ditch the Rolodex and go digital. They discuss the most common mistakes made in law firms, best attorney software to incorporate into your practice, how to decipher and optimize the unique legal sales cycle, and how to engage with your target audience from the moment they need you.
