Tedford & Associates

From Crash Victim to Successful Personal Injury Attorney

When law student James “Ted” Tedford was rear-ended at 65 mph, he experienced firsthand the trauma of being injured by another’s negligence. He turned this into a passion for justice.

Spending $25K/Month on Bad Leads

Ted was a newlywed in his second year of law school when he was rear-ended. He suffered serious injuries that caused him decades of pain. As someone who experienced his own brush with death, Ted knew a lot about adjusting to a life of pain. He understood how a single event could turn a person’s life upside down. Once Ted had new prospects in his office for a consultation, connecting with them and earning their trust was a breeze. The real challenge was getting more people through the door.

In the late '90s and early 2000s, he tried what nearly every other attorney was doing: running Yellow Pages ads. “I was paying $12,000 to $15,000 a month—even up to $25,000 at one point,” said Ted. “I was getting calls from my ads, but the quality wasn’t great. It was a waste of money.”

Ted then transitioned to online marketing, but his vendor took too long, was unresponsive, and his new website wasn’t bringing in any new business. Something needed to change.

A Natural Fit

Despite his rocky past with digital marketing, Ted knew the Internet was the way of the future. He trusted Scorpion to turn things around, and that’s exactly what we did. We built a website and marketing plan that actually delivered results. According to Ted: “Our firm has grown significantly. We’ve gone from having one full-time assistant and one part-time assistant to five full-time staff members and a few part-time attorneys. We had to move to a larger office because of all our growth.”
“We've been able to increase both the volume and quality of cases we get through our website, and that’s because our marketing team is so receptive to making any changes we need. Scorpion is head and shoulders above any other company I have worked with."
