The Personal Bio of an Attorney Video Expert
Welcome to the Lawyers’ Video Studio!
This is an exciting place to learn how to create video and to improve your attorney videos.
Hi. My name is Gerry Oginski and I want to personally welcome you here. If you don’t know me already, I am a medical malpractice and personal injury trial lawyer in practice for more than 25 years here in New York. Over the last few years I have created over 900 educational and informative video clips to help online viewers understand how lawsuits in the State of New York work. During that time I learned the hard way how to create good video and even bad video. I have created, produced and uploaded these videos on my own.
My goal here in the Lawyers’ Video Studio is to educate you and explain why using video to market your legal services is the best tool you can possibly use to establish a bond with your online viewer. A video helps you generate trust and if done correctly, will cause your viewer to raise their hand to ask you for more information.
I invite you to explore my site, read the articles, and I encourage you to take a look at my YouTube video channel. By the way, if you’d like help getting onto video, give me a call. I can help you. If you simply need guidance and help with creating your own video, I’m available for consultation on an hourly basis. If you want an all-in-one turnkey system, I can do that too. What are you waiting for? Take that first step to star in your own video today. I’ll help you take the other steps.
A QUESTION I AM OFTEN ASKED…
QUESTION: “If your law practice is doing so well, why are you bothering creating video for other attorneys?”
ANSWER: This is a question I get asked by lawyers who are curious about why I created the Lawyer’s Video Studio and why I help lawyers across the country create great educational video to market their own practices. It’s a perfectly valid question and I encourage attorneys to ask it.
DID YOU KNOW…
There are some marketers in our legal community who are not attorneys.
Some of them are very good at what they do. Some are okay at what they do. And some of them are, let’s be polite, not as good as they claim to be.
There are other legal marketers who are attorneys but no longer practicing.
The question many attorneys have is, if these non-practicing attorneys are giving advice about how to market a law practice, but are not actively using it currently, how then can you put your faith and trust in someone who no longer practices what they preach? Again, a valid question.
DID YOU KNOW…
That I am the only practicing trial attorney in the country who helps lawyers create video to market their practices. I practice exactly what I preach. All of the tips, strategies and techniques that I teach my clients who are really smart attorneys, are ones that I personally implement in all of my marketing.
I spend approximately half my time practicing law and the other half on my video business. I have developed a lifestyle practice intentionally. As a solo practitioner in one of the most competitive markets in the country, I can only handle a select number of cases. If I do not wish to handle a particular case, I have many referral sources who are excellent at what they do.
Let me share with you what I do in my law practice…
When a new call comes in I will either accept it for investigation, immediately refer it out or reject it. I will only take on cases that I know I can handle and have the time to devote to it.
With my video marketing business I can devote my creative energies to teaching you and helping you create great content that your viewers want and need. I help you create compelling content that makes your videos interesting.
I love practicing law…
I love being an attorney. I love taking depositions. I love trying cases. That will never change and I will never give that up. I also love being a video producer and a video marketer. I love helping other lawyers with their video marketing and watching that lightbulb go on when I teach them something new that helps revolutionize the way they market themselves.
I love being a video marketer too…
Being a video marketer allows me to be creative, have fun, meet really smart attorneys and genuinely try and help them with their marketing efforts. I’m proud to say that I’ve developed many long-lasting friendships with lawyers who have become my clients here in the Lawyer’s Video Studio.
That’s my story. I’d love to hear yours.
Finally, I encourage you to see and hear how I have used video in my video blog called NEW YORK MEDICAL MALPRACTICE VIDEO BLOG. It really shows you what you can do with video. I hope you have an amazing day!
