Ethics Webinar Part 4: Attorney Advertising and Solicitation

One of The Top 4 Ethics Hotline Questions

Attorneys can advertise, but in today’s world of rapidly evolving media, it is not always clear which lawyer communications are advertising and which are not – and what ethical implications the answer can have.  This program will provide attorneys with information and tools needed to help ensure that their web sites, social media postings, blogs, and other online references meet today’s regulatory and ethical standards.

“I have utilized all of the service providers that I noted in the survey and truly felt I received great service from each.  My favorite continuing legal education seminar provider, Pincus Professional Education is particularly noteworthy though.  I have attended about five Pincus seminars.  Each was phenomenally packed with useful content and had presenters/speakers of the highest skill level.  I would unhesitatingly recommend Pincus to other lawyers and am already planning my next couple of seminars with this CLE provider.”  – Quote from The Recorder’s ‘Best of CA 2013′ survey.
