Pat Rafferty of Androvett Legal Media & Marketing has more than 20 years of legal marketing experience, assisting law firms in heightening awareness and building a positive professional image.

He is responsible for directing and implementing advertising strategies for clients through the effective use of print, online, electronic and multimedia advertising.


Branding and positioning of a law firm is essential in building one’s reputation, attracting clients and delivering solutions to their problems. It also plays an important role in the recruitment of the best and brightest legal talent.

He was with Texas Lawyer/ALM for 12 years, and his knowledge and understanding of the inner-workings of law firms allow him to construct sound marketing plans and implement effective advertising campaigns.
