Compliance and Recommendations on Social Networking Sites | Compliance Building

So the last post, led me to this post about the dangers of social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook, especially when it comes to recommendations.  I’d bet the average person didn’t know that in several jurisdictions, attorneys are prohibited from using testimonials in advertising.  So is a referral on LinkedIn a testimonial?  Would you want to be the lawyer brought before your bar’s discipline committee while the point is argued?  It raises interesting questions about not only about how do these rules interact with where technology is going, but how does someone find a quality attorney to represent them.  What sources are available to rate attorneys and help you separate the good from the bad?

This journey into the world of technology and law is certainly raising more questions than it is answering.  Well we have three years of school ahead of us, while we figure it all out.
