  • New Attorney Advertising Decisions Reduce Ethical Minefield

    attorney advertising decisionAdvertising as an attorney is a perilous endeavor. On one hand, nobody can find you if you don’t advertise. On the other hand, advertise in a new or particularly outrageous (for lawyers) way, and risk drawing the ire of your state bar ethics board.

    Writing about the legal ethics of attorney advertising can be depressing. But there are good days too. Sometimes you get to write about an ethics decision that really got it right. Other times you get to write about overzealous ethics boards getting a well-deserved bench slap.

    And rarely, you get to have a very good day, and you get to write about both.

    social media ethicsScore one for the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
