We have been working very hard, very diligently, and with purpose to bring consumers reliable and transparent information on lawyers during personal and business legal crises, when legal represenation selection is paramount. When we opened our doors in 2008, Lord & Scott was almost immediately mistaken by consumers as a lawyer referral network. Fast forward from answering phone calls directly, to emailing lawyer lists, to publishing static lists, to developing a separate website and entity, to publishing mobile apps... we are now partnering with consumer advocacy group Lawyers In My City, and have created a greater and very elite, curated network of the finest lawyers across the country.
Consumer Advocacy Statement
The market is saturated with lists and directories regurgitating the same, outdated information, and published by folks without one day of experience in the legal field. Our consumer advocacy group, Lawyers In My City, consists of former legal professionals spearheading this organization, from content curation to working with our technology talent to create innovative mobile device deliverable information. We know how law firms operate, we have been to trial (criminal/commercial litigation), immigration proceedings, and have mediated, negotiated, and passionately worked for our clients to bring favorable results. Now we work for consumers to protect them for misinformation and provide a clean, straight-forward network of lawyers that is actually monitored.
Consumer Advocacy Statement: Protecting Lawyers, Too
As former legal professionals, we also protect the lawyers in our network. We achieve this by allowing attorneys to moderate reviews, and prevent attorney/client privilege violations and malpractice suits on the basis of attorney-client privilege arising from review disputes. While attorneys cannot change a review, they can choose whether or not to have it published on their profile. Additionally, we monitor and moderate reviewers and flag any questionable review activity, including blocking problematic reviewer IP addresses. Your reputation is important to us. We also achieve lawyer protection via our state of the art attorney dashboard that allows publishing any changes to your practice in real time.
In English and Spanish
We bring lawyers of all practice areas to the forefront and market their services directly to consumers ready to hire. We help families who are too embarrassed to ask their friends and colleagues for lawyer referrals for sensitive matters involving criminal charges. We help professionals who are community leaders in their fields and are navigating embarrassing business legal situations, or who want to bring actions against other businesses. We help Spanish-speaking consumers who are ready to hire legal representation, but may have language barriers. We help everyone we can, and we will continue our mission.
naming TOP aTTORNEYS In 2021
We are now nominating Top Attorneys for 2021 and publishing guides to criminal defense and immigration law from the perspective of the consumer. What do they want to know about lawyers? We have surveyed over 10,000 consumers nationwide and have developed our two-page lawyer feature spreads to answer their questions, instead of creating an impersonal profile of an attorney. We only include lawyers of the highest caliber, and who are in good standing, and who do not have a history of continuous complaints to us from our users. We are currently inviting nominees to be published in our Guide to Criminal Defense Lawyers and Guide to Immigration Lawyers. Both publications have a nomination invitation/acceptance deadline of August 2021.

Marketing Spotlight: Radio
Largest Spanish-Speaking Syndicated Radio Show
While you may already market on other sites, it is important to keep in mind the 60.48 million Spanish-speaking consumers ready to spend their legal representation dollars. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the US, with a record 60.48 million Spanish speakers, according to the US Census Bureau. According to our records, just over one-third of lawyer requests come from Spanish-speaking consumers. How can we help you? Just one of the ways we are marketing our curated lawyer network is via nationally syndicated El Show de Piolín to reach even more Latinos in cities across America. Stay tuned.
