Justia Lawyer Directory Badges

The Justia Lawyer Directory uses badges to distinguish profiles with certain characteristics.

Claimed Lawyer Profile Badge

Claimed Lawyer Profile

This badge appears on the profile of any person who has claimed their profile on the Justia Lawyer Directory. It usually means they have more up-to-date business and contact information. These lawyers are more likely to respond to contacts than lawyers whose profiles are unclaimed.

If you are a lawyer and have not yet claimed your profile, you can do so here.

Offers Video Conferencing Badge

Offers Video Conferencing

The Video Conferencing badge indicates that the attorney offers video conferencing services. Attorneys with this badge have indicated that they are available to meet with potential clients digitally through at least one video conferencing service, such as Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, etc. Video conferencing services allow people to get in touch while working from home. Lawyers with this badge are included in the "Offers Video Conferencing" filtered search results within the Justia Lawyer Directory.

Ask a Lawyer Badge


The Ask a Lawyer badge means that the attorney participates in Justia Ask a Lawyer, which is a forum where people can get answers to their basic legal questions on a variety of topics. Attorneys who answer questions on Justia Ask a Lawyer automatically receive this badge on their profile, and you can see a list of the answers they have provided if you scroll down on their profile page.

Justia values these lawyers because they freely contribute their time to helping the public get answers to basic legal questions.

Premium Membership Badge

LII Gold

Some attorneys have premium memberships in the Justia and LII Lawyer Directories. Gold placements are featured metro-wide above and within general listings, while Silver and Bronze placements are featured after all Gold placements have been featured. Gold placements also benefit from a contact form directly on their profile page and access to traffic statistics on the Justia and LII Lawyer Directories.

If you are a lawyer and are interested in premium membership, you can contact us for more information.

Blawgsearch Badge


Attorney blogs ("blawgs") are a great way for consumers to learn more about lawyers before contacting or hiring them, and they also allow lawyers to explain recent developments in the law to the public and their peers. Attorneys with the Blawgsearch badge have at least one blog in the Justia Blawgsearch directory, a comprehensive searchable directory of legal blogs.

Social Media Badge

Social Media

The social media badge indicates that the attorney has connected at least one social media profile (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+), lawyer directory profiles (Avvo, Lawyers.com, Martindale), or publishing site (JDSupra, LLRX, BePress, SSRN, Scribd).

Responsive Law Badge

Responsive Law

Responsive Law is a friend of Justia, dedicated to making the legal system more affordable, accessible, and accountable to the people it is meant to serve. Lawyers with the Responsive Law badge in their profile have pledged to abide by certain principles of consumer-oriented service.
