    Casey Meraz

    Founder & CEO

    Casey Meraz is an entrepreneur, SEO expert, investor, creator, husband, father, friend, and CEO of Juris Digital. Casey entered the legal marketing space way back in 2009 when he was working as director of marketing for The Reeves Law Group in Los Angeles. Before long, Casey’s entrepreneurial spirit took over, and The Reeves Law Group went from being his employer to his client, as he formed Ethical SEO Consulting.

    Under Casey’s leadership, Ethical SEO grew from a one-client shop to a sustainable, profitable operation serving small businesses in various verticals, from home services to physicians, lawyers, e-commerce shops, and more.

    Eventually, Ethical SEO Consulting morphed into Juris Digital. Casey’s innovative strategies, industry-defining thought leadership, and prolific publishing have been essential to the success of Juris Digital and its clients. Read more about Casey here.

    Matt Green

    Chief Strategy Officer

    Matt Green is a husband, father, terrible golfer, and the co-founder of – and Chief Strategy Officer at – Juris Digital. Matt fell in love with SEO as a marketing channel immediately for two reasons:

    • It’s inherently competitive. Who doesn’t want to be ranked #1?
    • It’s non-interruptive. SEO is the marketing channel for people who think TV ads and billboards make the world worse.

    In 2011 Matt was hired by Casey to be a blog writer at Ethical SEO Consulting. Within a year, Matt was running the operations of the company, doing everything from hiring and managing employees to refining the company’s services offerings, to closing new sales.

    Around 2015 Matt and Casey decided that they could achieve their goals for the company while doing the most good by serving exclusively law firms. That’s when Juris Digital was born (Matt came up with the name, for better or worse).

    Over the last dozen years (time files!) Matt has established a reputation for being one the most effective legal marketers in the world. As the CSO at Juris Digital Matt sets the company’s strategic direction, which includes – in no small part – the tactics it deploys in service of its client’s goals.

    Matt doesn’t believe in silver bullets or short-term thinking. He believes that doing good work is its own reward – and that it happens to be the best path to long-term business success. He does his best to lead with empathy and compassion while helping to elevate the performance of those around him.

    Matt is most passionate about the convergence of SEO with more traditional marketing concepts like branding, positioning, and content design. Matt is a content creator who deploys his skills in writing, curation, design, and UX – all wrapped up in his deep understanding of SEO – to keep pushing Juris Digital and its clients toward their goals.

    Notable Works & Accomplishments:

    • Author of hundreds of blogs, articles, and pages on JurisDigital.com
    • Author of “How Proximity Impacts Law Firm Rankings in Google’s Local Pack”
      • “This was one of the most insightful studies that came out in 2018 and totally changed how we analyzed our client’s rankings moving forward.” – Colan Nielsen, VP of Local Search at SterlingSky
    • Contributor to Blumenthals Local Seach Blog, Moz Blog, Search Engine Journal, Above the Law, Senior Attorney Match, and Local Marketing Institute
    • Matt has directly executed SEO campaigns for over 100 law firms, driving traffic, leads, and new business time after time.
