This case study illustrates how our team collaborated with a criminal defense lawyer to enhance their website’s search engine visibility, propelling their site to the first page of Google search results and significantly increasing organic traffic and leads.
Our client, an experienced and reputable criminal defense lawyer, specializes in providing expert legal representation for clients facing a wide range of criminal charges. Despite their impressive track record and excellent client service, the lawyer’s website struggled to rank on Google for high-traffic, relevant keywords, resulting in limited online visibility and a low volume of leads from organic search.

Increase organic traffic to the website.
Enhance user experience and optimize the site for conversions.
