How It Works

Understanding HG.org can help enhance your firm’s online presence and visibility in Google search results through effective marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) strategies.

Brief History of Directory

Launched in 1995 by Lex Mundi, HG.org set out to democratize legal information. Serving more than 200 countries, it features law firm listings profiles, and legal resources across over 260 practice areas. It’s your gateway to a comprehensive legal directory established by Steve McGarry to support the legal industry and those seeking legal services.

Free Services

HG.org’s platform allows lawyers to create profiles at no cost. Showcasing your law firm and services becomes effortless, helping you create a tailored online presence that improves your visibility and SEO authority. This can be part of a powerful marketing strategy to attract more clients—an approach aligned with enhancing your practice using proven marketing ideas.


Paid Services

For greater exposure, consider HG.org’s tiered paid services. Starting at just $195, list your firm and harness directory listings to improve your search results. Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • $195/year for 1 office with up to 10 lawyers
  • $295/year for 2 offices with 11-25 lawyers … and so on, up to $795/year for 7+ offices and 501+ lawyers. Each additional office is an extra $100/year. This strategic investment can support your SEO efforts, as detailed in this winning law firm SEO guide.

Profile Optimization

Optimizing your law firm’s profile on directories like HG.org can significantly enhance your online visibility and credibility.

Reasons to get a profile

When looking to expand your firm’s reach and attract specific clients in areas like bankruptcy or personal injury law, an HG.org profile serves as a powerful tool. With up to 1.2 million visitors each month, your firm stands to gain considerable exposure. An HG.org profile not only enhances credibility but also serves as a cornerstone of your firm’s digital marketing strategy, helping to boost your presence in top search engine results. For law firms aiming to grow their client base without breaking the bank, a specialized listing is one of the best values on the Internet. Plus, contributing to the site’s Legal Articles section can elevate your firm’s perceived expertise.

How to get the profile

To kickstart your firm’s online growth, begin by listing it on HG.org. Submit your firm’s root domain and provide essential details such as the person in charge, a compelling law firm overview, your practice areas, and the number of offices and attorneys. If you’re eager to maximize your firm’s internet presence quickly, consider opting for a Premium Listing, which goes live upon payment. For those interested but budget-conscious, Basic Listings are reviewed within 30 days at no charge.



Online Reviews & Client Feedback

When searching for a law firm, potential clients heavily rely on online reviews. Sites like HG.org facilitate a place where client reviews contribute to the visibility and credibility of your practice. Reports suggest that a single negative review can deter approximately 22% of prospects. This means that regular monitoring and encouraging satisfied clients to leave positive feedback is paramount for your success.

Peer Endorsements & Rating Systems

Conversely, peer reviews and a lawyer’s rating within directories impact consumer trust. HG.org, attracting over 1.2 million unique monthly visitors, also allows for lawyers to be rated by their peers, adding another layer to your firm’s reputation. Strong peer endorsements mean you’re not only revered by clients but also respected in the legal community, enhancing your firm’s profile among potential clients.

Remember, thriving in directories isn’t just about being listed; it’s about standing out. With the expertise of Constellation Marketing, you’ll captivate those in need of bankruptcy, criminal defense, estate planning, family law, immigration, or personal injury expertise with a stellar directory presence backed by a flux of positive ratings and reviews.
