This week, Michigan attorney Steven M. Gursten was featured in the Detroit Legal News after this legal blog for Michigan accident victims, drivers and personal injury lawyers alike impressed a reporter.
The Jan. 26, 2008 story discussed the reason Metro Detroit lawyers maintain blogs and how blogs are changing the legal profession. But we believe our blog is only effective if it’s a valuable resource for our readers and friends.
In the article, Steve pointed out that the Internet and blogs are changing the way younger generations that have grown up with technology find lawyers. He says for a large population of potential clients, Google is the first place they’ll look.
Here’s an excerpt from the story:
“We’re just on the cusp of where things are going to be,” Gursten said, adding that as people increasingly use their cell phones like home computers, they’ll be able to log on and see who they should call the minute they’re in an auto accident.
After an initial run at blogging five or six years ago, Gursten said he took it up again last year and now tries to blog at least twice a week. He said the blog’s Web site, including the blog, attracted more than 40,000 unique visitors last year.
And a blog’s audience isn’t limited to new or existing clients and fellow attorneys who share a blogger’s views.
Gursten said he often blogs about insurance companies and their treatment of clients, and knows these companies have been reading his posts, because he recently received a case referred to him by an adjuster at an agency he’s been hard on in the past.
For a firm that doesn’t do any television or yellow pages advertising and relies mainly on referrals, “it’s been a very, very positive, rewarding experience,” Gursten said of the blog.
