Gounaris Abboud's objective was to increase their number of cases by improving their visibility in local and organic search results.

Gounaris Abboud's objective was to increase their number of cases by improving their visibility in local and organic search results.
  • Navigating the competitive landscape of the criminal defense niche, particularly in local search results, presented a significant challenge.
  • Their competition already had plenty of SEO-optimized content that gained a lot of traffic, user interactions, and more importantly, trust from search engines.



In this fiercely competitive field, our primary strategy involved a comprehensive analysis of competitors to identify opportunities for outperforming them.

Grow Law Firm conducted a meticulous examination of Gounaris Abboud’s competition, aiming to enhance search rankings and attract valuable traffic. Additionally, a detailed technical audit of their website was carried out to assess its effectiveness and alignment with target audience preferences and industry trends. As a result, the main focus shifted to creating and improving foundational SEO content on the website, rewriting existing content to make rank higher, and implementing conversion tools.

Gounaris Abboud strategy


Building on insights from competitor analysis, we addressed content gaps on Gounaris Abboud's website through targeted strategies.

This involved optimizing existing service pages and blog posts by incorporating identified keywords, case studies, and SEO best practices.

New service pages were created to improve visibility, offering a comprehensive overview of practice areas. This approach not only enhanced the website's visibility but also allowed the firm to rank for more relevant keywords, thereby increasing website traffic.

Web Design

Recognizing the need for a more appealing and user-friendly website, we initiated a redesign, particularly focusing on the homepage. 

Opting for a modern and professional look, we introduced a clear navigation menu and search bar for enhanced accessibility. The service pages underwent a redesign, each dedicated to a specific practice area for clarity and engagement. The case results page was revamped to achieve a more organized and visually appealing presentation.

A key aspect of achieving more leads, calls, and clients involved establishing a well-defined conversion funnel on the website. 

A significant enhancement was the strategic addition of clear and compelling Calls to Action (CTAs) throughout the site. These CTAs guide potential clients further down the buyer's funnel, prompting leads to contact the firm or schedule a consultation.
