Lawyers Gone Ethical

Release Date: 03/27/2018

What should your social media profile(s) include? Are you compliant with the ethical rules when you build out your social media profiles? In this episode, I discuss what you should consider including in your profiles in order to remain compliant.

What I Cover in This Episode:

  • When is your social media profile considered attorney advertising and when is it not?
  • What must you include in your profile if we are to treat it like attorney advertising?
  • On Facebook specifically, what’s the important and necessary information to include
  • What about Twitter? What should be included there, especially considering there’s less room to include information?
  • What disclaimers, if any, should you include?
  • How can you make the best use of the “Pin Post” option?
  • Should you include terminology indicating specialization? If so, what language should you include?
  • Can you include testimonials in your profile? Should you?
