What is a legal guide?

Legal guides are Avvo's collection of lawyer-authored articles. Writing a good legal guide lets attorneys provide helpful advice that benefits consumers and demonstrates their proficiency in the areas of law they know best.

When  attorneys write a quality Legal guide, they can receive a few extra perks:

  • Contributor points
  • Increasing their exposure on Avvo
  • Strengthening their web presence for search engines

Additionally, if a guide proves to be a cut above the rest it may get an Avvo Staff Pick, which increases its ranking in our site search results, and also makes it a candidate to be featured on our landing pages.
