BEWARE: Advertising Campaigns Can Make Far Away Attorneys Seem LocalMany people are surprised to learn that the attorney advertisements that they see on television are often not for local lawyers. Many of these ads want to make you to believe that they are for local attorneys but often times the attorney or law firm mentioned in the ad is located in some far away state.
When an injured person responds to the ad and picks up the phone to schedule an appointment with a local lawyer their call is actually taken by a call center in another state and then the information is passed on to an in-state law firm that is paying to get the referral. Or perhaps a younger, less experienced attorney is paying a fee to act, more or less, as a local franchise for the national firm-getting leads for the national firm's advertising.
When looking for a local attorney visit their website, check the office location, but also look at the attorney profiles in the ‘about us' or ‘firm overview' section. It would be easy to figure out if the lawyer really based locally.
