About LawDotNews

LawDotNews - Direct to Your Target Market!

Our track record since 2005 speaks for itself - have a look at what our clients have to say about us below.
The LawDotNews client newsletter was started in 2005 to provide law firms with a highly professional, effective, low effort, low cost marketing service in the form of the LawDotNews client newsletter.

Grow Your Practice

Grow your practice with regular, quality communication! For the cost of a business lunch, imprint your firm’s name in the minds of your best clients and prospective clients!
Use the principle of “spaced repetition” to stay top-of-mind with your clients (and prospective new clients) and they will automatically think of your firm whenever they need legal assistance of any sort.

Keeping you in Touch!

Stay in touch with your clients and prospective clients by adding them to your mailing list and providing them with a quality, highly informative monthly newsletter.

Connecting You to your Clients

Every month your clients and prospective clients receive a personalised newsletter sent to them via e-mail under your firm’s compliments slip. The information in LawDotNews (available in both English and Afrikaans) is short, simple and topical – information of practical interest and value to your clients. Information that will encourage them to seek your advice and assistance.

The “Attorney version” has links to cases and other references that will provide you with all the information you need should a recipient have a question or need assistance, and to make your research much easier. Every month we provide you with the content, design and transmission -

Jack Crook

LawDotNews is authored by Jack Crook, whose legal qualifications (LLB Lond and LLB Rhod) are supplemented by over 40 years’ practical experience in the legal, insolvency and marketing professions.

This diverse background, together with decades of hands-on experience in running his own firm and seeing “the other side of the coin” as a consumer of legal services, has given Jack a unique insight into what your clients will and won’t find useful in the way of legal information. The demand is for updates and guides that are helpful on a practical level.
In our hectic modern world, there is no time for theory. What your clients want and need is quick communication in plain, simple language. It must be short, simple, topical and useful. It must constantly give your clients value; only then does it grow your firm’s goodwill.

Jack meets this need for you. You will be telling your clients about the new opportunities and threats that our dynamic legal system keeps throwing at them. You will be telling them clearly and succinctly how our law can work for or against them, the pitfalls to avoid, and the opportunities to grasp.
