Clients like to know who they’ll be working with when they contact your law office. A “meet the team” plugin for your WordPress website displays bios, credentials, social media links and photos for all staff members, making it easy to introduce everyone and give clients a look into the people behind your firm’s name. Use these plugins to show your clients the diverse talent on hand at your legal offices.
From the developers of WooCommerce, the free Our Team plugin displays bios, pictures and other information, including an optional “author archive” link, for each staff member. The open-source code may be modified to meet your needs, and you have the choice of displaying bios using a shortcode, widget or template tag. If you’d like employees to manage their own profiles, simply add them as users and let them choose what to share.
Law firms handling multiple types of cases can use Staff Directory to sort team members into categories and display bios using shortcodes. With this free plugin as part of your site, you have the option to create as many custom fields as you want so that bios are unique to your office. Team members’ bios are easy to edit using the same setup as when you create a WordPress page.
Team Builder – Meet the Team
Drag-and-drop editing and Visual Composer compatibility make Team Builder an easy choice for creating, managing and displaying staff bios. Choose from layouts like grids, sliders and widgets to put together a custom display, and include social media icons if desired. For $22, this premium plugin provides additional functionality for feedback and testimonials as well as team information. The features are easy to use and produce attractive results.
If you’re looking for a modern, streamlined team bio option, try the premium Team Showcase plugin. A license costs $16 at CodeCanyon, and you get the choice of using a standard grid display, a thumbnail display, a table or a grid with information displayed when a visitor hovers over a team member’s picture. Choose varying image effects, column numbers and text alignment, or start with a preset to make your staff directory stand out.
WordPress Meet the Team Shortcode Plugin
Show off your legal team in a grid or carousel layout with up to 12 columns using the WordPress Meet the Team Shortcode Plugin. With unlimited custom fields and a shortcode generator, it’s easy to create a personalized, mobile-responsive directory. Purchasing a premium license for $19 gives you the tools to manage bios via custom post types or use the plugin to display an array of client testimonials instead.
WP Team Showcase and Slider
This plugin is available in both free and pro versions and gives you the choice of 25 different grid and slider designs within three layouts. Start with just two simple shortcodes and add parameters to change the way team information is displayed. Give clients more info by turning on the option for popups to accompany each bio and including photos, links and social media icons. Pro licenses start at $12 for a single site.
Team management plugins make your staff members stand out and help build trust with clients. When your team is right there on the site for clients to “meet,” they feel more comfortable contacting you and putting their legal concerns in the care of your firm. Staff members appreciate the opportunity to showcase their expertise, and you get the benefit of being able to grow your reputation online and distinguish yourself from other firms in your area.
