Lawyers In The United States

According to Lawpay.com, the American Bar Association reports about 1.33 million active attorneys in the U.S. Since 2019. That number is a slight drop from the total of 1.35 million prior to 2019.

Colorado Searching For a Lawyer

A new study from Florida personal injury lawyers Anidjar & Levine determined which states are most likely to search for a lawyer. The study analyzed 150 of the most populous cities in the United States and the number of times each city Google searched a variety of terms related to lawyers.

Search criteria included:

  • motorcycle accident lawyer
  • personal injury lawyer
  • lawyer
  • best auto accident attorney
  • immigration attorney
  • medical malpractice lawyer
  • how much do lawyer
  • rocket lawyer

You may have just asked yourself, "What is a rocket lawyer?" In this case, a rocket lawyer has nothing to do with aerospace or NASA. According to bootsuite.com, "Rocket Lawyer is an online platform that has a team of licensed attorneys who offer legal advice and aim to resolve all your legal needs. Rocket Lawyer has assisted over 20 million consumers with various legal matters, and it is now a leading online law firm."

Two Colorado Cities In The Top 20 When Searching for a Lawyer

Results from the study by Anidjar & Levine indicate the two Colorado cities most likely to Google search for a lawyer are:

  • #4 - Denver
  • #20 - Colorado Springs

Looking at the results of the study, Denver, with a population of 713,252, had a total of 29,062 searches. That would equal 407 searches for every 10,000 residents.

Colorado Springs, with a population of 486,248 people, had 9,201 searches. That totals 189 Google searches for every 10,000 residents.

Now For The Good News

While those numbers may seem high, Colorado can take a little comfort in the knowledge they aren't as bad off as Atlanta, Georgia. That city, with a population of 499,127, had a total of 26,912 Google searches for lawyers. That comes to 539 searches for every 10,000 residents.
