Tom Reluctantly Surrenders to Digital Marketing and …Signs up for Avvo

To help boost several colleagues’ online profiles, I recently surrendered to another aspect of digital marketing and “claimed” my Avvo account:

<a href="http://<a rel="me" target="_blank" href=""><img alt="Avvo – Rate your Lawyer. Get Free Legal Advice." id="avvo_badge" src="//" />http://<a rel=”me” target=”_blank” href=””><img alt=”Avvo – Rate your Lawyer. Get Free Legal Advice.” id=”avvo_badge” src=”//” /></a>

Awkward – the link is unnecessarily duplicated. I cannot seem to remove it.

Fortunately, my practice does not depend on digital leads: rather, my practice depends on word-of-mouth referrals. However, I constructed an Avvo account to help endorse my colleagues whose practices depend far more on online reviews. An Avvo account also helps reinforce my digital presence as a “legit” attorney.

I also claimed my Avvo profile because I would rather not have a disgruntled peer beat me to the punch.

On another note, I am pleased to join Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Legal Aid’s “Short Term Staff Attorney Program” as a leading advocate for landlord-tenant work.

Yes, I generally play ball for the landlords – however, I can also go to bat for the underdogs.

Fun fact: I am a former Northwest Justice Project Rule 9 intern. (2016, Longview office).
