Have balloons with the law firms name printed on them to show potential customers that they have arrived. It looks bright and fun and keeps people interested. Have “souvenirs” made. Lollipops, stickers and even Frisbees with the company’s name printed on them. It is a great way to attract kids to the booth which would also bring the adults. For the adults, magnets and playing cards with the law firm’s names is a creative way to advertise as well.
