Where Do Our Lawyers Come From?
The numbers are in from the second quarter on which 10 states led the way for profile claims in our directory. While no new states entered the top 10 when compared to the first quarter, we did see some movement in the rankings.
What Type of Law Do They Practice?
The Justia Lawyer Directory includes over 50 different practice areas so that our users can find the best lawyer for their legal matters.
In the second quarter of 2021, lawyers in these practice areas most frequently claimed their Justia Profile: Personal Injury, Family Law, Business Law, Estate Planning, Criminal Law, Divorce, Real Estate, DUI & DWI, Probate and Bankruptcy. Notably, Bankruptcy joined the mix of practices area with the most lawyers claiming their profiles between April 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021, while Employment Law fell out of the top 10.
