    What's the advantage of claiming this page versus making a new page? Thanks!

    Thanks for the question.

    Community pages were created by Facebook in April of 2009 to be the “the best collection of shared knowledge on a topic”. The content on these pages is pulled from Wikipedia and related content that your friends and the global Facebook community. Companies had no control over the content.

    Law Firm Pages are created by the firm itself (hopefully) and have extended features such as blog feeds, picture albums, discussion pages, twitter streams, FBML pages, etc. You can't personalize a community page the same way.

    You should absolutely claim your community page to gain whatever controls Facebook is allowing at the moment. You can monitor what people are saying about your firm online and I believe you can also merge your community page, Facebook page, and Facebook "places" page into one.
