Legal Copywriting for Law Firms

We provide legal copywriting services to help your law firm become more successful online.

Content writing for law firms is an essential part of a successful website. We always tell our clients, “It’s not just about having a good-looking website, it’s about what you do with it when you have it.” 

Our copywriters create informative, engaging and legally accurate content that focusses on the services your law firm provides. This means that anyone who finds your website can access the information they need and clearly understand the value your law firm can provide. This helps them make the decision that your law firm is the right one for them.

Effective, SEO-optimised website copy allows you to build trust and credibility with your prospective and existing clients whilst answering their questions in a simple and easy-to-understand way. It also allows you to demonstrate that you care and want to help your audience receive the best outcome.

Legal copywriting doesn’t have to be boring, or lack personality. Tailoring copy that accurately reflects the tone of voice you wish to convey is something our copywriting team specialise in.

Legal Copywriting FAQs

What is legal copywriting?

Your prospective clients will often use a search engine when they have a legal query, question, or want to find a law firm. Effective legal copywriting ensures that your law firm’s content features on those search engine results pages (SERPs) and gains the interest and attention of a client. Legal copywriting should also reflect the specific tone of voice you want your firm to convey.

Why is legal copywriting important?

Copywriting is the basis of any good website. A good-looking website will serve no practical purpose if you don’t know what to do with it. Legal copywriting will help to sell your law firm and your services to potential clients by providing helpful, informative, and engaging content. Without content that showcases your firm’s experience and expertise, you are unlikely to attract and convert your target clients.

Why do you need good legal copywriting content?

Good legal copywriting is essential for showing potential clients that your firm is experienced, trustworthy, credible and reliable. These are all critical in the buying process for legal services.

How long should my legal copywriting be?

How long is a piece of string? As you can see from our page, website content is becoming longer, and it is increasingly difficult to rank on search engine results pages. We’d typically recommend content to be between 1,000-2,000 words, but this is by no means a one size fits all solution. Our SEO team will work closely with our copywriters to identify what keywords are ranking, how hard it will be to rank for these keywords and assess your competitors to determine how long a page of content should be.

How many keywords should be on a page?

There is no single answer to this which encompasses every type of page you would ideally have on your website. Our SEO team conduct extensive research into which keywords to use and how many times to use them to ensure your content will be picked up by Google and other search engines, while also remaining coherent and readable. That said, we’d usually recommend 1-2 keyword mentions per 100 words of content. You can find out more about how to use keywords, without making your content sound terrible here.

How can I make sure my content is readable for search engines and humans?

We’ve previously hosted a webinar on this very topic which we think might help you! You can watch it here.

Are your legal copywriters legal experts?

Although our team of legal copywriters haven’t come from a legal background, given that we only work with law firms, they all have an extensive knowledge on all aspects of the legal industry. In 2022 alone, we wrote over 1 million words of content for our law firm clients. The legal content writing process includes time for research, writing and proofing by another member of the team. We will also work collaboratively with you if there is specific content you would like us to use or avoid using. 

What do you mean by jargon and how can I avoid this?

Legal jargon is content that the average person isn’t likely to understand. Any complex words or expressions used by a profession are usually considered to be jargon, and including these words in website content is a common mistake that law firms make! That’s why our copywriters take care to deal with the intricacies of the law while also producing content that is digestible to the average person.

Why should I get a legal copywriter to write my content instead of a lawyer?

Our legal copywriting team have the expertise, knowledge, time, and tools to create content that is valuable, will showcase your law firm in the best light and will bring the right traffic to your website. Plus, your lawyers are there to practice law and run files rather than write content. We do this every day so we’re much quicker than they will be, and we bet our hourly rate is lower too.

Why should I get a legal copywriter to write my content when I could use AI?

AI certainly has a place in the marketing world, and will continue to shape content creation moving forward. But, as it remains in its infancy and tools such as ChatGPT have their limitations, solely relying on this software to produce legal content is ill-advised. Of course, we believe that there are many benefits to using AI, including idea generation and general research, but the inaccuracy and legal considerations of using AI at this time can’t be ignored. If your firm is using AI, we would recommend having a real human person (or 3) review every piece of content created and never share a piece of content that is fully written by AI. In a competitive legal market, law firms need to be standing out with their content- just using AI won’t help you to achieve this.

What our clients say

Conscious and my account manager Katie Blake have been a major asset to my practice. Katie has really thrived on getting the partnership between us right. Conscious is great at what they do, always on the ball, and things get sorted out straight away. With Conscious managing my website, I know that I can focus on the law and leave the marketing to them without any worries. As the firm continues to grow, I would like to enlist the support and expertise of Conscious Solutions even more.
