The Impact of Online Reviews for Attorneys

  Marc Rovner, general counsel at BETA Abstract and a resident of East Rockaway, New York, is the recipient of the Silver Client Champion Award from Martindale-Hubbell and Lawyers.com. The award recognizes attorneys, such as Marc Rovner, who reach the highest standards of client satisfaction. Factors for the award include positive reviews from clients.

Most people want a point of reference when they make any kind of purchasing decision. Increasingly, that means turning to online reviews.

According to data from Reviewtrackers.com, around 83 percent of people start their search for an attorney by checking online reviews. Approximately 70 percent are willing to travel to a less convenient location in the interest of meeting an attorney with better reviews. That makes online reviews good predictors of whether a client will choose a specific legal professional.

Therefore, it is in the interest of all legal practitioners to incentivize clients to leave honest reviews about their services. Giveaways for reviewers and direct links to a review site in emails are two ways to get more clients to leave reviews.

The Children’s Rights Council’s Safe Haven Centers

Attorney Marc Rovner of East Rockaway, New York, serves as general counsel and director of business development at the title insurance company BETA Abstract, LLC, where he oversees business development in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. A supporter of the Children’s Rights Council (CRC), East Rockaway attorney Marc Rovner earned the CRC Man of the Year Award in 2004.

CRC was founded in 1985 to protect the best interests of children and ensure they have fair access to both parents regardless of marital status. It accomplishes this goal via advocacy and its three Maryland-based access centers, where parents can facilitate the peaceful transfer of custody and conduct supervised visitation meetings if necessary. These access centers are known as Safe Haven Centers, and are operated in partnership with the Prince George’s County Circuit Court.

Supervised visits as long as four hours are offered at Safe Haven Centers every Saturday, and times are generally determined by judges. All parents visiting their children at these centers must review and follow the rules and guidelines, the most important of which is that no child shall be left alone. Moreover, parents and others approved by the courts are the only ones permitted at Safe Haven Centers.

Mets’ Pete Alonso Breaks MLB Rookie Home Run Record

A resident of East Rockaway, New York, Marc Rovner is an experienced, award-winning attorney who has served as director of business development at BETA Abstract, LLC, since 1998. Apart from his professional pursuits, East Rockaway attorney Marc Rovner is a passionate sports fan who considers the New York Mets as his favorite Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

Although the Mets failed to make the MLB playoffs, one of its players, Pete Alonso, had a record-breaking season. The 24-year-old rookie wasn’t even assured a roster spot entering spring training but, on the second-to-last day of the year, established a new MLB rookie record with his 53rd home run of the season. The previous record was held by Yankees’ outfielder Aaron Judge who, upon hearing the news, offered to take Alonso out to dinner.

An alumnus of the University of Florida, Alonso was selected by the Mets in the second round of the 2016 MLB Amateur Draft. In addition to breaking the rookie home run record, he led the entire MLB in home runs this season and was named an All-Star. Through 161 games, Alonso also registered 30 doubles, two triples, and 120 RBI to go along with a .260 batting average and .941 OPS (on-base plus slugging).

Rebuilding New York Rangers Look toward Playoffs in 2020

Based in East Rockaway, New York, Marc Rovner is an established attorney who holds real estate and corporate law responsibilities with BETA Abstract, LLC, a title insurance company. An avid sports fan who maintains a presence in East Rockaway and beyond, Marc Rovner has attended New York Rangers hockey games as a season ticket holder for many years, since 1970!

A recent USA Today article written at the beginning of the Rangers training camp explored the rebuilding Rangers’ goals and chances of making the postseason, following a two-year absence from the playoffs. With coach David Quinn, a classmate of East Rockaway Attorney Marc Rovner at Boston University where Marc Rovner graduated Magna Cum Lauderdale as an undergraduate in 1985 and also attended the Boston University School Of Law Class of1988, now entering his second year with the team, he describes summer moves such as adding defenseman Jacob Trouba and forwards Kaapo Kakko and Artemi Panarin as part of a process of bringing in talent that began more than a year ago.

Last year the Rangers experienced a season of fluctuating success, the team winding up with a 32-36-14 record in the Metropolitan Division. This included only five victories in the critical last 21 games of the season, which placed them well outside of wild card contention in the Eastern Conference.

Beyond the departure of veterans and entry of new talent, one advantage the Rangers have going forward is that most of the players are now familiar with how coach Quinn’s system works, and will be better prepared to meet the mental and physical demands that he asks of them on the ice.
