My I.T. guy informs me we now have 5,208 readers of the Silly Blog. I don’t know if that figure includes the group that banned the blog because it silently adversely criticizes the minority members who spend the big advertising dollars or by members who boast of their big settlements (no verdicts). Also the largest bar association in this State silently declined to run a paid ad announcing the Silly Blog’s existence.
Hopefully that number of readers includes lawyers who recognize that the mistake of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1978 favors the media advertisers but hurts the image of most trial lawyers with the public and also affects them and their families financially. The Silly Blog does not contain any solicitation of cases for my law firm.
It also includes an invitation for each lawyer to use any of the material I have published to send to their clients, friends, relatives, acquaintances or anyone else that you feel needs to be informed of the plusses and minuses of lawyer advertising. You can even claim it as your own product.
With your help the number of readers will continue to grow. If the non-television, radio, billboard, internet, etc. advertising lawyers use the Silly Blog perhaps the public will regain any confidence that trial lawyers may have lost.
I encourage you to buy local products and hire local, reputable attorneys!
