Have you studied your market? Who do the lawyers use now? Have you studied the competition? Are there enough law firms in your area to keep you busy? Can you handle the crazy hours related to legal videography? Just a few questions to ponder before you decide to get certified.
Legal videography can be very profitable but it can also be a huge drain on your time and resources. Attorney’s cancel at the last minute all the time and they call you at the last minute to do work as well. If you can handle that type of craziness, then legal videography may be a great opportunity for you.
I personally don’t chase legal videography but we still end up doing about 10 legal related video projects per year. We aren’t certified but we do ask a lot of questions each time to make sure we are doing exactly what they need us to do so everything can be submitted without problems in court.
