General Questions

Q: Is this legal?

Court Clerk does not provide legal advice, but the Supreme Court has upheld an attorney’s right to advertise as protected commercial speech. This does not mean you say whatever you would like. It does mean you can solicit business using direct mail subject to the Rules of Professional Conduct for your specific state. For additional reference please review your state specific rules.

Q: Are there other attorneys doing this in my area?

Probably, but using Court Clerk provides qualitative and quantitative advantages over other methods attorneys may be using to obtain names. Using our Full Production Mailing Service provides a very quick turnaround time from when we acquire the names to when your letter is placed in the mail. This means your prospective clients receive their letters faster.

Q: What else should I consider?

Consider accepting Visa, MasterCard and American Express, if you don’t already. Part of converting the leads Court Clerk provides into clients is making the process as easy as possible. There are many good resources available on the Internet to establish Merchant Accounts.

Getting Started

This section is designed to help you get started increasing your client base by targeted direct mailing.

Q: How do I start?

A: You start by selecting the municipalities or towns in which you are interested in representing clients. From experience, we recommend towns that are in geographic proximity to your office.

Q: How many names should I start with?

A: It depends on which state you’re in, however, if you’ve never done direct mailing before, we recommend you start small and add towns as you become more comfortable with the process.

Q: Great, I know where I want to send my letters, what next?

A: Next, create a letter to your prospective client. The letter needs to be concise and clear. Perhaps your clients have brought in letters that you can use as an example. However, the most important element of the letter is TRUTH. The letter should be created in a word processing program such as Microsoft Word.

Q: Are there specific requirements for the contents of the letter?

A: Court Clerk is not qualified to provide legal advice. However, we suggest you review the Rules of Professional Conduct for your state.

Q: OK, I’ve created the letter, what next?

A: Next email it to us. We will add in the merge fields for you. The merge fields are what transforms a normal word document into a personalized form letter. We will then email you the letter and a sample Microsoft Excel file.

Q: How long before I start receiving calls?

A: After we receive your order it takes 5 days to print your envelopes and finalize your letter for printing. Once your letters are mailed you can expect to start getting responses within a few days.
