  • Introduction\nWhy Me? (Bar Association fight, Social Media involvement)\n
  • \n
  • Show the “Series of Tubes” video from the Daily Show. Whether you like it or not, these are the people running things in America. And don’t think that the Bar Association is going to get a handle on how the web works before they regulate. They won’t. In fact, they haven’t - as we won an injunction against them for this very reason. \n\nAlso, give examples:\n- Lawyers still do not have email (I had an email faxed to me before)\n- Bar associations and lawyers are AFRAID of the Internet and Social Media\n
  • Really, our discussion is part technology and part legal ethics. You should really already know the legal ethics part - who took legal ethics?\n\nYou know you have duties of confidentiality, duties to your clients and others, and you have duties to advertise truthfully. How does this intersect with what you do online, that’s the question?\n\nBig Firm v. Small Firm. Doesn’t matter who you’re working for (yourself, a small firm or a big firm), this issues will come up because everyone is doing it online :).\n
  • This question has transformed the world. I don’t know about you, but I don’t watch or read the news anymore at all. I get all my news from RSS Feeds, Facebook feeds or Twitter feeds. Just people answering this question: What Are You Doing? Or Reading? Or Watching?\n
  • Well, when you’re an attorney, what you’re doing is you’re working on a case. You’re going to court. You’re dealing with an opposing attorney or judge whose an asshole....\n
  • But we have to watch what we say, right?\n\nWell, this stuff comes up.\n
  • In Illinois, a former Illinois assistant public defender faced disciplinary charges over posting to her blog which may have exposed client confidences and revealed her complicity in a client's fraud on a court.\nThis blogger was just plain dumb. It's obvious that an attorney has duties of professional responsibility, right? You can't say this stuff. Take a look at the comments she made by visiting the link.\nWould this lady, in her wildest dreams, purchased space in a newspaper to write this? I venture to guess she absolutely wouldn't. So why in the world does she feel like this is any different online?\nThe answer is this (i think): She just feels more comfortable doing it online, b/c we're getting to be a share-all society.\nBar associations and technophobes freak out about this stuff and call from strict rules to prevent this. BUT, do we need these strict rules? Doesn't the same confidentiality rule prohibiting the lawyer from publishing it in the newspaper, also prohibit her from publishing it on a web blog?\n
  • This literally happened just this past week (Oct. 18th), and it’s being appealed in Virginia. AND, this matter has a bit more importance which we’ll discuss later. But, here is another instance of client confidences. Thing interesting here is that we’re not talking about “confidential information” - why? Because it’s in the public domain! \n\nUnlike IL lady, Hunter is not blogging about his clients secrets. He’s just blogging about things that are public information. We all know that things that are public are not = to confidential info.\n
  • So, think about this. JDSupra.\n\nThese are memorandums, filed in the court, completely public. Anyone can go to the courthouse and look at these documents. If you’re in a parish with electronic access (24th JDC), anyone can go see them.\n\nPublic information allowed to be published by an attorney or client confidence?\n
  • This is the JDSupra slogan.\n
  • Here is what one lawyer blogger added to it. Why?\n
  • Because of this. However, I disagree with this. While I disagree, unfortunately, I’m not the authority. \n\nI think they are more searchable, but think this is a dumb argument. Just because public records are "hard" to find, doesn't make them "secret" in any way. Plus, more and more clerk offices are putting their records online, and all appeal records are now published online free to be searched in one way or another.\nTrouble is, information is becoming more accessible than ever. An attorney shouldn't be penalized for contributing to that.\n\n
  • examples of where pleadings are made searchable. \n\n
  • examples of where pleadings are made searchable. \n\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Here is a duty that every attorney has: a duty to the court. You can’t make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal. How does this relate to social media? Any guesses?\n
  • How many folks have heard of this phenomena?\n
  • Well, it’s a way for lawyers to get caught cheating too. Take a look at this instance.\n\nVisit link: http://zlien.us/qHDxlu\n\nRead this paragraph: “Criss has seen lawyers on the verge of crossing, if not entirely crossing, ethical lines when they complain about clients and opposing counsel. And she admonished one family member who jeopardized her own tort case by bragging online about how much money she would get from a lawsuit.”\n\nI read this a while ago and thought....no way, right?\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Great New York Times article that really ties together this tug of war between technology and bar associations. As you may have gleaned from the other links in this stack, I don't think any special rules are required to regulate attorney's behavior online. We already have the rules. Don't be an idiot! Don't put something online that you wouldn't publish in the newspaper. Don't make comments you can regret. Don't reveal client confidences. Etc.\n\nBUT, there is something that makes folks feel like they can do this online, when they would never do it in the newspaper. It's this "online attitude."\n\nThat's one piece of the puzzle. The other piece is that the attitude is not a myth or defect of any sort. It's a reality. The world is becoming more transparent. Justia, Google, JDSupra, etc. are publishing legal opinions. Pleadings are viewable online. When you want to get information, you don't have to go to the county recorder any more. You don't have to search high and low...it's right there at your finger tips. \n\nShould it be??\n\nWell, that's the battle the bar associations are waging. A battle against these "online attitudes." And the trouble that I see, which goes back to the beginning, is that they don't really understand how it all connects and why transparency makes sense, and that just like everything else, the legal profession can (and should) change.\n
  • So, we talked about duties to the court, and we also touched on duties you have to clients (confidentiality). Let’s talk about other duties that an attorney has. Duties to prospective clients.\n
  • WebMD, everybody has heard of this, right? When you have something wrong with you, what do you do? You google it, or you go to webMD to figure it out. Can this work with the law? Does anyone know of anyone doing this?\n
  • LawGuru is an example of one of these sites.\n
  • Here is one site doing this the most effectively. They have some things they do as a precaution: (i) questions are asked anonymously; (ii) visitors are told to not reveal confidential information; (iii) disclaimers, etc. However, lots of attorneys get cold feet about working on these sites. They feel like they have potential clients run amuck here, and are what are their obligations to these potential clients?\n
  • FTC does not regulate lawyer marketing. But they are chiming in, and are against the bar associations. They filed a brief in our case. One thing they really like are these Q&A / legal matching sites. Lawyers and bar associations hate them because: (i) they think its an ethical minefield; and (ii) it’s competition; and (iii) it gives users the ability to do more pro se; and (iv) a lot of the matching sites are non-lawyers.\n
  • More duties. Impartiality and Decorum.\n
  • Here is my facebook friend Herbert Cade. I have cases before him in his court. Am I committing an ethical violation by friending him?\n
  • One thing I hate about legal ethics is that it is really not “ethics” at all. It’s just rules, and we have to stop taking them so seriously. Supporting my contention that they are “rules” and not “ethics” is how so many people can disagree with them. \n
  • There is a link I’ve provided on Delicious about Georgia bar just being confused :)\n\nCan give money.\n
  • Jurors tweeting at trials\n
  • Lawyers tweeting at trial. What if it’s about the trial. What if it’s a judge who follows them?\n
  • Here are some duties that lawyers have just to the general public / third parties. Care to think of how this may be problematic with social media?\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Advertising!!! I love this part. This is a very relevant component of this discussion, because advertising is very much integrated with all the other things we discussed. As I’ll mention later, twitter, facebook, avvo, jdsupra, websites, google searches, etc - are all, in some way or another, advertising....\n
  • Back in the day there wasn’t any advertising. But now, lawyers have a constitutionally protected right to advertise. It can be regulated, however.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Here is an outline of the general traditional ABA model rules. Most states maintain these rules. LA rules are close to this.\n
  • They were really built with this in mind.\n
  • Not this.\n
  • So, with all these series of tubes getting filled up with material....the powers that be needed to regulate the Internets, and this is what they came up with in Louisiana. It was pretty much a duplicate of what was proposed in NY and FL. \n\nThis is very, very broad. It covers a lot. What if you mention your services on FB, twitter, on a blog, in avvo, etc. etc.\n\nProblem is that if it fell w/in this definition, it was STRICTLY regulated. You may say, so what, meet the regulations. But it’s just not fair if your speech is regulated when constitutionally, it shouldn’t be - right?\n\nMore troublesome though was that everything that fell w/in this category needed to be sent to the bar (before or simultaneous to publication), along with a $200 fee, for approval. Go figure that.\n
  • Here is the good news.\n\n#1) We beat the LA regulation\n#2) FL and NY also lost out on these, or pulled it after our case\n#3) The ABA weighed in and said this.\n\nHere is the bad news: the regulators are back at the drawing board notwithstanding...\n
  • Florida is really leading the country in passing aggressive regulations to classify attorney online behavior as "advertising." Their efforts have been met with legal challenges, and that has changed the course of the rules.\nInitially, all rule proposals were rejected by Florida courts. However, right now, it appears that Florida will be moving forward with some sort of regulation that treats websites like all other advertising materials, requires websites be "filed," and - this is really weird - users would be required to click through a disclaimer page.\n
  • Here is someone who requires disclaimers.\n
  • Here is someone else.\n\nReally? Lawyers, liquor and porn? Come on Man.\n
  • What is Advertising? Ask class to define it.\n
  • This is a really, really, really big problem.\n\nBack in the day, figuring out what advertising was used to be really easy. You paid for it, it went in a magazine or newspaper, you bought “ads.” \n\nToday, advertising is a very funny thing. Blogs, participating on social media sites, are all advertisements. let’s look at traditional advertising first...\n
  • Google is the biggest example we have of traditional advertising online. You pay for an ad, you get an ad displayed.\n
  • Looks like this. It’s an ad. This can be regulated the same as offline advertisements, right?\n\nThat is what LA thought, and that’s why they grouped them together. So, they wanted us to send them a copy of our online ads, pay a $200 fee, get it pre-approved, etc.\n\nBut they didn’t realize, even this type of advertising is drastically different than offline advertising.\n
  • Here’s why. YOu don’t do this with a newspaper ad or tv ad. You make one, or a few, and that’s it. But web advertising experience is different.\n
  • Plus, you don’t have much room. Advertisements require all these disclaimers. If you notice on TV attorneys must also indicate the name of the lawyer responsible for the ad and location of the practice. Where would I put this. Should I give up 25% - 50% - 75% of the ad space for this? Does that make sense?\n
  • But let’s get back to the more difficult question - which is defining what advertising is anyway. \n\nWebsites first launched = business card online.\nNow = websites are much more, they are interactive, they are tailored to the visitor, they engage a community of visitors....\n
  • Now we have what is called Content Marketing. And I love me some content marketing. It all goes back to WebMD. Here are the rules:\n \n- People who have legal problem will go online to find answers\n- You provide the answers\n- You are considered a “thought leader” or “Expert” b/c you’re providing the answer\n- Client calls you\n
  • Here is an example. Want to know how to file a mechanics lien. Search for it, my article comes up, you click it, you say, this Scott Wolfe guy is sharp, I’m going to call him. \n\nThis one is done through Avvo.com. However, we do it online through our blogs as well. And in fact, we use our blogs as a bullhorn for our expertise.\n
  • We are constantly writing on our blogs about construction law issues. We write and write and write and write. When people are searching for these issues, they find us, they consider us the expert / thought leader....\n\nReally, ask yourself. How different is this from the advertising that went on before “Bates v. State of Arizona.”\n\n\n
  • This is what people used to do to make themselves “thought leaders” and experts. They would write these west law books (yawn) and they would give presentations and present at trade events, cles, etc. They would make themselves have the reputation for something....\n\nAnd really, that’s all - in a sense - that blogs do, JD Supra, Facebook, etc. If you use this right, you make yourself a thought leader.\n
  • So, blogs can make you a thought leader, sort of like pre-advertising advertising did. Same experience really....\n\nAnd, second...\n
  • Can blogs make you part journalist? As you know, journalism (the press) gets a lot of wiggle room with the constitution.\n
  • Hunter claimed he was reporting on his cases. Remember the Bar’s words, that this was not really about confidential information.... “Can newspapers report on criminal trials? Yes, absolutely they can. Can (Hunter) then go back and report on his own cases [that are in public domain]. No, absolutely not.”\n\nHmmm....\n\n
  • Look at this article.\n
  • Look at my blog talking about this article\n
  • Can blogs be part political? Political speech, as you know, is very protected speech.\n
  • Take a look at this. This is about a pending bill.\n\n(Note also, its on a friend’s blog in Virginia. Think: Multi-jurisdiction)\n
  • And, then we have what is called Social Media Marketing. \n\nThere is even a Wikipedia page for this. So it’s real.\n
  • WLG’s facebook page. Talking about what we do, sharing with our followers and friends....\n
  • Talking about what we do, sharing and communicating with fellow construction attorneys and people in the industry. Making myself a thought leader, a journalist and a political commentator....all on twitter in 140 characters or less...\n
  • \n
  • Well, it’s part about the money. At the end of the day, we have a money interest. It’s done in the way it’s done...to position our firm.\n\nBut, we are also passionate about what we do. I don’t do construction law just to make money, I am not a lawyer just to make money. I am passionate - at least to some degree - about my chosen profession. So, I comment on the political issues that affect my industry. I disseminate the news that affects my clients, my industry.\n\nThat makes me an expert. It makes me a thought leader. It also, I think, borders on making me a journalist and a political commentator...which is hard to regulate. And bar associations are having a very difficult time getting their finger on what exactly constitutes commercial speech.\n
  • Which brings us back here....where we have stuff that is close to non-commercial speech, and stuff that is non-invasive.\n
  • Okay, here are some more thoughts....\n\nRatings. You know how much bar rules hate testimonials. But, man, testimonials are everywhere. They are on sites like Avvo. The \n
  • This is what the SC Bar says. They say lawyers are responsible for the sites they engage with. SC Bar says no testimonials. So if they are on AVvo, and a client adds a testimonial, they need to unaffiliated? It’s really unclear how they plan to police this....\n\nBecause we’re living in a testimonial world, and lawyers are becoming testimonial girls.\n
  • These sites all have it. “Reviews” are running the way we now choose restaurants, vacations, products....and professionals. \n\nBar associations may be able to stop lawyers from posting reviews, but how do they stop lawyer clients from posting?\n
  • Example. Can’t get this down. South Carolina?\n
  • And a final note...it’s really hard to control where your content is delivered these days. Once you post something, it can go in all kinds of places, on all kinds of sites, in all types of contexts because of the ability to share data.\n
