"Attorney Bio Photos – A Survey of 10 Firms"

Attorney portraits are, without a doubt, the single most impactful element of an attorney’s bio. Why? Because images evoke a quick and powerful emotional response in a way that written words can’t. We recently surveyed attorney bio photos and compiled a sampling of what we saw — both good and bad.

What makes for great attorney bios? In addition to proof of your expertise, we believe that it’s important to convey “a sense of you.” Personal tidbits (facts, photos, video) are important in sparking the kind of conversations that build relationships.

"The future of attorney bios. How personal is too personal?"
