Individuals, that are searching for an attorney, don't search by the attorney's name. If they already know the attorney's name, they probably already know how to contact that attorney.
People search for an attorney by typing in the general area, within which they hope to locate one. For example, "personal injury" "beaverton" "attorney" might be the words that someone would use. If those words are in your domain your site will show up at, or near, the top of the search results.
