Earlier, if people wanted to hire a lawyer, they would look up a Yellow Page. People either did this or turned to their family and friends for recommendations. With the introduction of the internet, nearly everything has changed. Thanks to this, there will soon be a time when clients will no longer know what a ‘Yellow Page’ is and what purpose it fulfills.
According to a study, 75% of people in the US looking for a legal service will either search online or take recommendations from their family and friends.
With exposure to review sites, recommendations from others are now usually cross-referenced to ensure quality assurance and research.
