Dear fellow lawyers: everyone hates us, and sadly, Google searches prove it. All you need to do is take a look at some autocomplete suggestions to realize that people really like to spend a lot of time Googling about it. And when they are not hating on us, they are searching for some deeply odd stuff. Witness these five searches.

(Yes, these are all real).


Why Do Lawyers Do Anything, Really?

Really? The main thing people want to know about us is the wig thing? Can’t we even get a question about good old-fashioned American lawyers up there first? The pro bono part is not so bad, and the defending criminals part is to be expected. But the fact that people think we are all lying drunken Democrats seems a bit too much to bear.

    Thanks for your valuable research – this is so funny! I work with attorney websites and SEO plus we do a ton of keyword research. Perhaps I’ve been targeting the wrong phrases!
