Ive been trying to grow my workers comp practice, and generally ive been trying to build off referals of past clients and pulling clients from other practice areas. (Like a bankruptcy client who got hurt at work or a pi client who was in a car accident while on the job.

My growth has been organic but slow (i took over about 15 cases, ive closed about 8 and now have 25 active cases. I want to make the jump to higher numbers (volume-wise)

How do you guys do it? Strictly by organic means? Or are you (or your firm) tapping into other sources (Accident reports? Unions?) in my state we are allowed to do direct marketing, which is kind of scummy, but absolutely works in other practice areas

Legal marketing is a strange duck. It seems like you have to be around 100 years to have any significant referal network.

I've had some luck getting comp clients through blogging. It took about six months, but I've started to sign up one or two new clients per week consistently thanks to my website.

Unions are a great place to get referrals, but difficult to break into unless you come from a firm with union ties.

Thats what i figured with unions. One of my prior clients works for a public utility, and referred two other guys from the utility, abd its good stuff.

When i go to comp court, a couple attorneys have all of these utility worker clients, they must be killing it with that connection

Chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical therapists are your friends.

What do you do with them? Have them kick patients your way and in return try to get patients go to them? Stop by with donuts abd coffee every friday morning? Golf outings and tickets to sports events?

I wouldnt be able to try to kick injured clients their way since the employer picks med providers.

I also know the ethical rules start getting a bit funny with this as well, but then there is the real world

To get volume organically takes a long time. If you want volume fast,
you have to advertise.

I can never get a real sense as to whether this practice area
Has the potential to be lucrative. Since the fees are low I guess
it depends how much of the work in a typical case
Can be done by paralegals.

I found that Tigershark Studios is definitely worth a look. They offer all aspects of law firm marketing. They also do celebrity endorsed TV Ads. I know they market for every type of law, give them a call if your legal marketing needs some help.

I highly recommend them to any law firm.
