The “About” page on your website is one of the most-visited. Because of that, having a good lawyer bio page is critical. Your professional bio should not just be a recap of your CV, nor should it just be a list of your accomplishments. Instead, it should include the following:

  • Your name and title right up front.
  • A professional headshot.
  • A summary of what you do for your clients.
  • An explanation of why you do what you do.
  • Highlights of relevant accomplishments or civic engagements.
  • Some personal (non-lawyerly) information.
  • Your direct contact information.
