When it comes to online video marketing, law firms have a unique opportunity to produce engaging content that can help them connect with prospective clients. By taking a page out of the books of successful law firms and lawyers using YouTube to drive engagement and traffic, you can help your law firm grow its online presence and brand

YouTube is the world's second most popular search engine. By creating engaging videos for your law firm, you can reach out to potential clients searching for legal information and services.

Why did these YouTube channels get a "must-watch" designation?

When researching this article, I quickly encountered many traditional attorney videos that resembled this 2017 SNL Skit "Attorney Ad." If the title card on the video had a lawyer in front of legal books and that sweet dark mahogany beloved by law firms, I kept scrolling. Instead, I was looking for a more modern take on the video format.

I passed over news outlets, major legal broadcasting channels ("Lawyer You Know" and "AskTheLawyers"), and competing industry videos. Instead, I wanted to find smaller law firms that could create pretty good content that speaks to potential clients because closing clients is the goal

Overall, each of these channels had videos that cut through the noise of the related search results. Not all these channels have high production quality or budgets, but they demonstrate knowledge and passion.

If you are interested in creating longer-form videos, you should jump in. There is still plenty of room for good, informative content.

Law firm YouTube channels

1Tiffany Webber, aka @TheRealEstateLawyer

Tiffany Webber, Thomas & Webber, has been immersed in real estate for over a decade. She launched her YouTube channel in 2020, and it's clear that she takes it seriously...and not so seriously. With 6.78K subscribers, she's definitely doing something right.

Tiffany provides a wealth of information on her channel, covering topics such as residential and commercial real estate closings, HOAs, and being a lawyer. And she's not afraid to experiment with different video formats such as interviews, talking heads, incorporating animation, and vlogging.

Her personality comes through, so it's an enjoyable experience as viewers learn through what would be otherwise dry deep dives and explainers.

Their videos range from high-quality branded videos to talking head segments that provide information and general guidance for those seeking help with criminal defense cases.

Despite being filmed on a computer or phone (presumably), this channel's videos have great quality, lighting, and sound. She pays particular attention to having a clean/styled background.

5DAL Law Firm, aka @dallawfirm

There's a lot of competition on Youtube for terms related to Bankruptcy coming from CPAs, Dave Ramsey, and financial talking heads. DAL Law firm's Youtube channel stood out to me as a calm presence in this space, talking about Bankruptcy and other financial issues a potential client may be experiencing on their way to Bankruptcy.

DAL Law Firm, started by Darcel Lobo, brings practical solutions to real-life issues to help clients plan for their financial future. They specialize in legal guidance related to real estate matters, Bankruptcy, estate planning, and probate. 

Right now, the channels have a low subscription rate. Still, in a space competing with Financial pundits, it's all about quality over quantity. Darcel is providing substantial content for potential clients.

6Narciso Cruz, aka @SanDiegoImmigrationAttorney

Immigration law firm channels all have high subscribers- so if you got into the legal field to become a youtube influencer, immigration law may be the right path for you. For this article, I looked for immigration channels that are bi-lingual and/or just focus on talking to their potential clients in a native language. I landed on a Spanish-speaking channel. 

Immigration attorney Narciso Cruz runs a successful YouTube channel with an impressive 144k subscribers and plenty of engaging content. Through his videos, he not only answers questions from viewers but also comments on current political issues surrounding immigration policies and the treatment of immigrants. He has created a platform for helping the Latino community in their immigration cases in the United States, providing resources and education necessary to face any legal challenges that may come up.

Primarily appealing to entrepreneurs and CEOs within the tech sector, Brett's videos have an interesting background of mug shots and low lighting, emulating that tech entrepreneur aesthetic.

8JZ helps (a Florida injury law firm), aka  @RealJustinZiegler

You could say that Personal injury attorneys have been at the forefront of video content for a long time. We all have our local personal injury personality (personally, I grew up in Cleveland, aka Misneyland). So how are PI attorneys using this format on Youtube? 

Well, it's surprisingly really boring out there. 

Searching terms around car accidents, medical malpractice, slip, and fall- even dog bites, I ended up with many old and flat videos. One channel stood out to me: JZ helps (a Florida injury law firm).

JZ helps over 9.72K subscribers on his YouTube channel. Justin Zeigler's channel comprises talking head explainers with flashy title cards and high settlement figures. He provides tactics, tips, and a peek into his strategy as a personal injury attorney.

This law firm uses clickbait titles such as "What Lawyers WON'T Tell you about Car Accident Claims (but I will...)". He adds stock video, photos, and sound to create dynamic content for his viewers. Though his aesthetic may not necessarily match your brand style, JZ helps actively keep up with the current trends in YouTube culture bringing forth an exciting opportunity for collaboration in content creation.

Kameron gives The Legal Tea about entrepreneurship, daily vlogs, and education around the legalities of being an influencer.
