Practicing Lawyers Embrace Social Media

This Thursday, I will be presenting in Seattle, WA to a group of lawyers from around the country on the topic of social media.  Not considering myself an expert in the field, I was surprised to get the invitation to join an esteemed panel.

Here's the catch; the good folks at, a website designed to interface consumers of legal [and health care] services with the providers of those services, wanted a panel made of practicing attorneys; not just the usual "social media marketing" consultants.

Lawyers are not just dabbling in social media these days.  For most, getting connected and developing a robust electronic profile is now a "catch-up" exercise.

So I will be addressing conference attendees on how, as a busy practicing attorney, I have utilized social media in my law practice.  Along with the other panelists from around the country, I will be sharing my experience with utilizing social media to get our law firm message out to our target  audience.

Thanks, in part, to the followers of this blog, I can point to sustained search results placing us near the top of hyper-local searches for legal services in Northern Oakland County.

As a preview to this presentation, I was interviewed by Colin O'Keefe [from the Seattle area] of LXBN TV.  Here is a link to Colin's interview.
