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="https://www.avvo.com/attorneys/r-lee-4968976.html"><img alt="Avvo – Rate your Lawyer. Get Free Legal Advice." id="avvo_badge" src="//images.avvo.com/avvo/cms/images/amos_assets/microbadge.png" />http://<a rel=”me” target=”_blank” href=”https://www.avvo.com/attorneys/r-lee-4968976.html”><img alt=”Avvo – Rate your Lawyer. Get Free Legal Advice.” id=”avvo_badge” src=”//images.avvo.com/avvo/cms/images/amos_assets/microbadge.png” /></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.
