Lynch & Owens Blog

Please carefully read the guidelines before submitting.

Guest Blogging Guidelines

The Lynch & Owens blog receives more than 35,000 unique visitors per year and is the leading Massachusetts-focused divorce, family law, and personal injury blog. We accept guest blogs from individuals who meet the following criteria:

  1. You must be a licensed attorney, a statutory mediator or a licensed professional in a divorce-related field. (In limited circumstances, we may accept blogs from other individuals, such as policy advocates or other individuals with unique perspectives on the law or litigation.)
  2. Our blog’s subject matter consists of divorce, family law and personal injury issues relevant to Massachusetts. Subjects may include national legal trends or legal trends affecting other states, but blogs should be relevant to Massachusetts readers.
  3. Guest blogs must be at least 1,000 words in length, and the writing quality must be generally consistent with the Lynch & Owens blog. Guest bloggers should be prepared to accept feedback and/or edits relating to quality.
  4. Guest blogs should strive to provide a meaningful contribution to legal scholarship, or focus on subject matter of genuine use to our readers. Guest blogs should not include overt solicitations to readers, such as suggesting that the reader “call the law office of xxxxxxxx to find out more,” or link to an outside blog or website affiliated with your business. We will provide an outbound link to your website in the “About the Author” section.
  5. Guest blogs whose authors have submitted a high-resolution photo will feature a “head shot” for the author at the top of the guest blog consistent with the current style and layout used on the Lynch & Owens blog.
  6. Guest blogs may include one hyperlink to their firm’s website, which shall be featured in the “About the Author” section at the end of guest blog as follows:
    About the Author: [name] is a Massachusetts divorce lawyer for [law firm name with hyperlink], located in [town/city], Massachusetts.
  7. Guest bloggers may separately provide a more detailed biography of up to 400 characters (without hyperlinks) that will separately appear below the guest blogs. (Optional.)
  8. Guest blogs may include additional outbound hyperlinks that have a reasonable editorial purpose, such as links to cases, statutes and periodicals that are supported by the subject matter.
  9. Guest content must be unique and original. Please do not submit a guest blog to Lynch & Owens that has been (or later will be) re-posted or duplicated in any other forum.
  10. Guest bloggers provide consent to Lynch & Owens to promote the guest blog across social media, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Instagram.
  11. Lynch & Owens does not engage in reciprocal link exchanges or other schemes intended to improve or affect SEO for any website. We invite guest blogs to improve the quality of our content by inviting diverse voices to contribute. In return, guest bloggers receive exposure to our reading audience. Quality content, not SEO considerations, is our focus.
