The purpose of this short post is to help you find an experienced lawyer who can help you with your social media and digital legal needs. A lawyer who knows your business, someone who is ten steps ahead of your competition, and a caring human being you can know, like, and trust (yes, lawyers are people too).
While price is always important, I believe skill, ability, and reputation are even more important. I say this because, after 30 years of practicing law, I know for a fact that it’s important to get your legal needs handled the first time correctly. Often there is no second chance.
So how can you, a social media and digital expert, find the right lawyer? Well, here are three approaches that I think you’ll like.
Approach No. 1- Get Personal Referrals
If you have friends or family who you respect and who are very satisfied with experiences they have had with a business lawyer who handles online business needs, you may want to start there. If you know a good lawyer who handles other types of legal matters (for example, estate planning or criminal defense), ask him or her for the names and numbers of the top 2 or 3 lawyers he or she knows who handles online business needs.
Friends at work and upper-level management and executives can be a good referral source. Well established social media agencies, authors, keynote speakers and social media influencers may also be able to share a few names with you.
I have an excellent database with the names of excellent lawyers who help digital business owners and entrepreneurs all around the world. Feel free to contact me if you would like the names of a couple of lawyers in your area.
