Keep reading to learn more about Justia Connect and discover the unique benefits of a Justia Connect Pro Membership for lawyers like you.
Justia Connect Pro Membership Benefits
With Justia Connect Pro, lawyers can get the most from their Justia Connect membership through a low-cost, optional upgrade! For as low as $16.65/month,* lawyers can access additional features and benefits only available to Justia Connect Pro members.
Enhanced Justia Profile in the Justia Lawyer Directory
The enhanced profile benefit allows Justia Connect Pros to take their free Justia Lawyer Directory profile to the next level!
When members upgrade to Justia Connect Pro, competitor ads are removed from their Justia Profile in the Justia Lawyer Directory. Additionally, the member’s contact information is moved up the page and a contact form is implemented directly on the lawyer’s profile, allowing potential clients to more easily reach out when browsing the directory. Finally, a Justia Connect Pro Badge is added to the lawyer’s profile, indicating that they are a Pro in various places across our platform.
In 2020, 79% of consumers indicated they trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from family and friends. Justia Connect Pros can put their best foot forward with these potential clients by selecting two client reviews and one peer review from another attorney to be featured on their Justia Profile in the Justia Lawyer Directory. These featured reviews also appear first (before any other chronological reviews) on the lawyer’s Justia Lawyer Directory review pages. This is an exclusive benefit for Justia Connect Pro members and is not available with any other Justia product or service!
Justia Connect Pro members also enjoy the potential to increase their visibility across the Justia platform and connect with more clients. As availability permits, Justia Connect Pro members may receive increased visibility in various locations across the Justia site, including Justia Ask A Lawyer and the Justia Legal Portal!
Justia Connect Pro Credit
Lawyers who upgrade to Justia Connect Pro automatically receive $100 in Justia Credit that can be utilized on select additional products and services from Justia Marketing Solutions, including Justia Premium Placements, Justia Elevate, and Justia Amplify.
This is not just a one-time benefit! As long as a lawyer remains a Justia Connect Pro member, s/he will receive a new Justia Connect Pro Credit annually.
With these savings, members can add new, effective tools and strategies to their marketing plans. Additionally, lawyers who already have Justia Marketing Solutions can apply this credit to their next renewal, giving them an extra $100 in their marketing budget each year.
Justia Connect Pro even offers lawyers additional learning and professional development opportunities. Leaders in the technology, marketing, and legal industries lead exclusive webinars for Justia Connect members through Justia Webinars.
Justia Connect Pro members have priority registration access for these webinars and can view recordings after a webinar has occurred – a benefit that is unavailable for members with a free Justia Connect membership. Additionally, Justia Connect Pro members even have access to regularly scheduled Pro-only webinars.
Justia Connect Pro Welcome Kit
Because we want to recognize Justia Connect Pros as valued members of the Justia Connect Pro community, lawyers who upgrade to Justia Connect Pro also receive a personal welcome kit full of Justia surprises and goodies. It is just our way of saying thanks!
