The Internet has transformed the way clients research attorneys. Potential clients seeking information are increasingly looking to the Internet for their legal needs.

We are regularly asked how to include a listing in a member’s bio, and sample language appears below for that purpose.
- You are allowed to advertise that you are a Trial Masters™ member, but not that you are a “Trial Master” or in any way suggest that being a Trial Masters™ member suggests or guarantees a desired trial result.
- You may not include any language that would allow a person to misconstrue that a Trial Masters™ member is more skilled than lawyers who are not members.
- Trial Masters™ is always plural, never singular.

A well-designed email signature will positively affect your image as a lawyer and the firm’s image. A law firm’s email signature is perhaps the most overlooked part of modern law firm branding.

Those emails are branding the firm positively or negatively whether we like it or not.
Trial Masters uses and recommends Timmy Cai. Timmy is a great signature designer and has worked with the Trial Masters founder for years.
