NYC Bankruptcy Attorney YELP Reviews
Like most industries the legal profession has also gone from the information age into the referral age. With endless amounts of information available on the web people are relying on online reviews to make purchasing decisions now more than ever. Big dollar, high impact ad campaigns are giving way to more organic forms of marketing like online reviews, client testimonials and good old fashioned word of mouth. Our business always has and always will be driven by customer referrals and our clients still mostly come from the same family, church and community networks in New York City that we started with. So while it’s always encouraging to see the nice things people are saying about us online these testimonials aren’t as important for our marketing as they are for other bankruptcy law firms. In other words, we don’t farm for reviews or even make it a point to ask clients to leave one for us. The great feedback we have is authentic, and comes from ecstatic people that have been given a new life through bankruptcy.
We’re lawyers. Our job is the law, not advertising. As long as we focus on delivering the best possible legal service everything else will fall into place. We maintain a 100% Chapter 7 discharge record in New York City as of 3/21/14 and are way too busy to waste our time soliciting reviews from our clients or faking them altogether. Anymore, most consumers are savvy enough to know a fake review when they see one, and with bankruptcy attorneys fake reviews are even easier to spot. First of all, while bankruptcy will give you a fresh start on your finances and can provide a positive outcome most people are not rushing to the computer to tell the world about their experience. It’s just not something they want to think about anymore no matter how thankful they are to an attorney. There is the rare person that wants to leave a genuine review, but most of the reviews you see online for bankruptcy attorneys in New York City fall into two camps: short or long. The short ones are sometimes two words or less. You see things like “excellent” or “the best”, or “great attorney”. If someone is going through the trouble of leaving a sincere review you would think they would have more than one or two words to say. The long reviews on the other hand seem to know an awful lot about the detailed technical aspects of bankruptcy. They talk at length about things most of our clients have never even heard of, and should never have to deal with in the first place. In short, if it looks like the online review was solicited or written by an attorney then it probably was.
We are busy in court, not on the computer. We don’t need to manipulate on-line reviews for business. We’re a boutique law firm with a personal touch.
