A Photo is Worth a Thousand Words


A professional bio and headshot are often the first impression a client or employer will have of you. When you do not have a photo available where people expect it, for example, in any attorney directory, people will make assumptions about you. When I peruse the directory and I see no photo or a photo that looks like it was taken on a cruise to Mexico with only the head showing, the body and palm trees cropped out, my first assumption is that either (a) you are a new attorney; (b) someone who is not interested in referral business; (c) you’ve decided not to make time to have a professional photo taken; or (d) you don’t have the budget for a headshot.
