Communications Department - Austin Bar Association (Small Bar)

"The redesign is sharp, captivating, and modern."

eNews - State Bar of New Mexico (Medium Bar)

"The e-newsletter's clearly defined marketing objectives are being met, with multiple data points to support the success, plus non-dues revenue to boot! The redesign is clean with consistent branding issue to issue enhanced by a good use of images and graphics."

Communications Department - State Bar of Texas (Large Bar)

"Stellar blog site and well-integrated into the overall website look and feel."

Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (Small Bar)

"Tremendous job on your first BBBC! Excellent job of consistent branding across all platforms. Good job in having your members serve as conference ambassadors in video and print marketing efforts."

San Diego County Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"I liked the clever use of word play with 'higher' versus 'hire.' I liked how comprehensive the ads were and how they maintained the theme throughout each placement."

Communications Department - Ohio State Bar Association (Large Bar)

"With each new material, I found myself more and more pleased with the marketing efforts. The video announcing the rebranding was by far my favorite. It was a wonderful preview for their forum and it seems like it was well received. I particularly like that they focused on member engagement in addition to money."

Toledo Bar Association (Small Bar)

"I LOVE the profile area - with photo and especially that members can see their past participation in Committees. That is a genius idea! Nice mobile compatibility."

San Diego County Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"Terrific site and an amazing feat that this project was completed by a staff of only three people. I can really appreciate the ‘wide rather than deep’ strategy as Bar Association sites seem to be particularly susceptible to that."

LawHUB Team - The New York State Bar Association (Large Bar)

"Wow! This is such a great idea. This site allows members to personalize their experience with a customizable dashboard featuring news, section memberships, services (like Fastcase) and other benefits (like LawPay.) I hope our bar does this in the future."
