One of the late hours solicitors in the bankruptcy area also has a spouse who runs a legal ad on the bottom of the front page of the Hamilton County Herald, the weekly newspaper that is primarily distributed to members of the Chattanooga legal and real estate communities. No one should claim that her ad for attorney services is “deceptive” as being in violation of the 1977 United States Supreme Court decision of Bates that took the handcuffs off of lawyers to allow simple and refined lawyer ads to be disseminated to the public.
Valerie Epstein’s ad simply shows her professional appearing photo, where to find her with a complete Chattanooga address including her local telephone number and website. She lists five areas of the law where she expresses her practice preferences, without untruthfully overstating her ability with a silly gimmick about her presentation of clients in Tennessee and Georgia since 1989 and the catchy but correct statement that “The Right Lawyer Does Make a Difference.”
While her spouse is staying up all night soliciting cases on television she is probably sleeping soundly in order to be fresh, alert and better able to represent her clients in the morning.
The Silly Blog believes that her type of lawyer ad is what the United States Supreme Court meant when it did not strictly limit lawyer advertising in 1977.
