We understand the importance of getting reviews and feedback from your clients, but some of your clients may not feel comfortable leaving a review with their name on it, even if they had a positive experience with the attorney.
Let’s say, for example, that a man was charged with a DUI. His attorney did a fantastic job of representing him, and the charges were dropped. Although this man had a great experience working with his attorney, and he would definitely want to give him a recommendation, he may not feel comfortable leaving a review with his name on it. Due to the nature of his charge, he wouldn’t want someone else to be able to look up his name online and see it be associated with a DUI case.
If you believe your client might not want to leave a review with their name attached to it, you can suggest that they leave an anonymous review. There are a few ways to do this, for example, if they’re leaving a review on Yelp, they can edit their username to say only their initials or maybe their first name and last initial. This way, it would be more difficult to track down exactly who they are.
If someone has been involved with a sticky situation but had a great experience with their attorney, they should still be able to give them an endorsement without having to “out” themselves.
