HALPP!!! Not ranking for certain terms !

If I do wrongful death law - why do I not show up in the local pack for those search terms? 

 
Example:
 
 
I am in position 1 - 3 in the organic 10 but not in the local pack
 
Where / how does google associate my local business with those keywords
 
I am the law firm in position 1-  3 - percymartinezlaw.com

Yep @Percy M

 

But are you aware using a spammy and keyword stuffed name for your listing "Percy Martinez Law Office - Medical Malpractice Lawyer - Miami"?

 

Google doesn't like spammers or business listing trying to get a marketing advantage by keyword staffed naming - they likey penalize you by a bad rankiing for such bad doing. 

Read their guidelines about naming:

Hi Percy, +1 to what Helmut said. Also FYI there are so many factors in ranking. But when I do the search your are #2 in the snack pack and #6 in the organics and no ads showing for you.
