Statistics for the Legal Market

Margaret GrisdelaHave you ever wondered how many law firms there are in the US?  How much the legal market is worth? How many marketers firms employ per lawyer?

Thanks to Margaret Grisdela, president of Leagl Expert Connections, I have all the key statistics in one place on the LawMarketing Portal:

  • There were 47,563 law firms serving the U.S. in the year 2000 according to the American Bar Foundation.
  • Lawyer offices (defined as the primary component of NAICS code 5411) generate $170.8 billion per year.
  • Law firms employ one full-time marketing person for every 30-40 attorneys, on average.

She's assembled these facts and a whole lot more for use in presentations, sales pitches and articles.  Just visit the Resources section of the LawMarketing Portal and click "Statistics for the Legal Market."  Margaret is author of the new book “Courting Your Clients: The Essential Guide to Legal Marketing.”
