"You Need a Lawyer" ISBA Directory on Biteable.


ISBA to launch a new find-a-lawyer directory for the public
More than 75 percent of consumers today search online to locate and hire legal professionals. And while popular websites like Avvo and LegalZoom exist, meeting face to face with a lawyer remains critically important. Which is why the ISBA is proud to announce that it has partnered with Zeekbeek to create a bar-based, lawyer-locator directory. This national directory will be populated through the membership databases of participating state bar associations. The evolution of the directory is guided by a consortium of participating state bars (to include, so far, the Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio bar associations).

The goal of this new ISBA directory is to help consumers find lawyers and allow lawyers to find other legal professionals. As a member of the ISBA, we have already created your profile with the information we have on file. Once launched, you will have the opportunity to expand your profile in the new directory by including a list of practice areas, a customized bio, links to websites, social media accounts, videos, articles and blogs, and much more. In an effort to make this a worthwhile resource for consumers, we’re encouraging you to update and expand your profile. Soon a helpful profile wizard will help walk you through the necessary steps to do so. Your “first impression” is as good as your profile!

Stay tuned for more information about this new find-a-lawyer service. We expect to go live with this exciting benefit in June. In the meantime, you can get a head start by ensuring your ISBA membership profile is up to date.
