Law firms handling criminal law cases are often overlooked when it comes to their digital marketing efforts and strategies. But what happens when attorneys understand their capabilities and the future needs of their prospective clients, and attract interest and build awareness through social media platforms?

Most of the time, when digital marketing experts talk about law firm marketing, they focus on Personal Injury, Workers Compensation, or Immigration and Bankruptcy attorneys. Of course, that’s certainly understandable, if not predictable, as those law firms tend to have the most robust campaigns and budgets. Today, we’ll differ and put our focus on Criminal Law. We’ll highlight attorneys who do it right through social media platforms and give you ideas and actionable tips on how to get in front of your prospective clients and create brand awareness that will help you sign more cases.

We’ll kick it off with the most unconventional social network of all, especially for attorneys. That’s TikTok. If you’re familiar with our blog, you might remember that, back in March, we explored the capabilities of TikTok for law firms.

Tip: Add the appropriate hashtags and produce material at a steady pace. That way, you maximize your chances of growing your audience and maybe even trending.
