"How are you different from an ordinary video expert?"

I was asked this question recently by an attorney who was considering hiring me to create his video. He lived in a large college town and was considering hiring some college students who were learning about video and TV production. He asked a good question: "Can't I just go to these people and have them shoot my video?" The answer is... Continue reading

Lawyer Uses Canon T2i to Shoot 938 photos and 35 videos on Vacation

"What kind of wacko takes 938 pictures on vacation?" That's exactly what my brother asked me when I returned from vacation from the Caribbean after having just purchased the Canon T2i camera with an 18-55mm lens and a 55mm-250mm zoom lens. I was super excited when my camera was delivered the day before we were leaving. I had just sold my previous Sony Cyber Shot DSC F828 camera and had bought the Canon dSLR primarily to shoot video. I am a medical malpractice and personal injury trial lawyer in New York and have created a business where I help lawyers produce educational video to market themselves online. Continue reading

Don't Tell Me How To Build a Clock, Just Tell Me What Time It Is

Most attorneys only want to practice law. For them, marketing is nothing more than an annoyance they have to deal with in order to get more clients so they can do what they enjoy, which is practicing law. Those lawyers are the ideal clients who come to me and say "I want you to create the video for me. I want it all done for me. I don't want to know about video editing, or compression, or how to color correct, or set my white balance. I just want to show up and start talking, and then you send me an email link where my video is so I can watch the final product." Continue reading

Did you know that traditional lawyer advertising has "sucked?" It's true. Lawyers made a terrible name for themselves when they'd advertise. Why?

What Do You Get When You Cross a Lawyer With a Video Camera & An Internet Marketer?

It wasn't that long ago that I considered myself a trial attorney focused solely on handling my client's cases. As I learned how important it was to get new business, there was always the requisite get-to-know other lawyer meetings in order to expand my referral base. I also tried all the traditional forms of advertising including Yellow Pages, TV commercials, display ads, classified ads, 1-800 number campaigns, free recorded messages and on and on.

Testimonials

Gerry, We were so happy to finally meet you. We thought that we knew a thing or two about using video in our law practice until we discovered you.
You are the man. Meeting you last week prompted us to completely rethink our video strategy AND we decided that we weren’t doing nearly enough. You light a fire under our butts!
We are now back in Seattle and refocusing and redoubling our video marketing efforts! Thanks Gerry!
