TOP 100 Law Firm Directories (2018) – Attorney SEO Directories Ultimate List

Chris Dreyer on April 2018

Note that submitting to directories and building citations are important law firm SEO strategies to pursue.  These are mentions of your firm name on other websites.  Building out hundreds of these listings is a powerful search signal however it can be very time consuming.

Legal directories offer an extremely easy, effective, and affordable way for attorneys and law firms to advertise on the internet and promote their brands.

As an attorney, you already realize the importance of promoting your practice to get your website in front of the right crowd. That’s where law firm directories come in handy!

And guess what. Your audience is already waiting for you; you just have to let them know you exist.

A legal directory specializes in bringing those people to attorneys like you. Moreover, when other sites link back to yours, you’ll improve your Google search engine rankings, which translates to more free residual traffic.  Google states that links are one of the top three ranking factors in search making link building for lawyers a sensible goal to pursue.

If SEO is important to your practice and law firm, then you need to know that most law directories are FREE to use, while others require monthly or yearly fees.

Premium law directories usually provide extra exposure on their sites and other benefits free members cannot access unless they become paid members.

How Is this List Different from Other Law Firm Directories?

Unlike many other websites or blogs that rank or display legal directories, our law firm directories list isn’t randomly picked but manually curated. Plus, it is an interactive list, which means you can select directories you want to submit to based on price or niche.

We always like to point out that if you are following a list of sites put together by another site owner or SEO agency, do your home work on the sites they recommend.  Make sure sites have a high Domain Rating, that they look helpful, and that they do not appear spammy or low-quality.

We listed sites with the highest domain ratings per Ahrefs at the top because they’re more authoritative and backlinks from those sites are of greater SEO value.

With more than 100 unique law directories submission links listed, we made sure all inclusions were active and valid at the time. Please email us to report dead links, and we’ll replace them.

Whether you’re a family law attorney or a personal injury lawyer or you practice admiralty and maritime law or focus on consumer protection issues, most of these directories already have a category just for you and sometimes more than one.

While the focus is on U.S. law firm directories, we also made sure to mention a few Canadian legal directories we have found.

This legal directories list will continue to expand as our research continues.

  1. Hi Chris, wow, what a mega list! Nice work. And thanks for including Enjuris! I wanted to let your readers know we have a free version available at Enjuris, too, which does include a high-value link.

    We are a fairly new niche directory especially for personal injury lawyers.

    And lastly, I hope you plan to update this list periodically, as we are “movin’ on up” – we’ve been busy building out our consumer facing content and we also offer members some great features like exclusive territories, guest blogging, the chance to be quoted in articles our editors write for media outlets, among others. Stop by and say hi soon!

  2. There is a new Legal Directory for Criminal Defense Lawyers going live in the next 3 weeks. I hesitate to call it a directory, because unlike most directory’s out there gives you a page per practice, instead of just a single page for everything.

    On top of that you can plugging into the system for Chat, Talking Heads, Click to call and 3rd party features.. All at a fairly reasonable price. Additionally, you can also get a vanity URL such as this.

    http:// which go to the real page

    The data of the site is sample data, but at least it can give you a taste of what the site can / will do.


  3. This is an excellent list which I can use for links building and improving the ranking for my attorney clients, there is one attorney directory which is in Spanish that we are launching and allows free attorney profiles including their website link, phone number and social media, it’s

  4. Thanks for an excellent law firm directories list. This list has proved essential as a part of link building activity. It has helped in improving the ranking of our law firm and promoting our copyrights registration services as well.

    • Hey there,

      Thanks so much for the suggestion. Unfortunately we are only adding directories that have at least a DR20. Once yours increases feel free to hit us up again and we will add it right away.


    • Hey there!

      Looks like is going to be a great directory. Unfortunately we include directories that are a DR20 or higher. Once Find Attorneys hits that threshold we will be sure to add it to the list.


    • Hey Daniel,

      It looks like is shaping up to be a great directory however we are only adding sites that have a Domain Rating of 20 or higher to our top directories post. Looks like Find US Lawyers is at a DR18 right now. So close! Keep up the great work in promoting it and once you get it to DR20 we will add it to the list above.
