Optimize Your Firm’s LinkedIn Page
Given the importance of “getting found” online, a law firm’s company page on LinkedIn deserves to be optimized for best results. (A firm’s LinkedIn page commonly appears on the first page of Google search for the company name. So why not use it to make a great impression?)
These are among the best practices (courtesy of blogger Kevin O’Keefe and also K2Media) for leveraging your LinkedIn page: Think visually — and be sure to include attractive photos and video clips to engage viewers. Provide a comprehensive listing of your services and practice groups. Ask clients to leave recommendations. Click here for more LinkedIn tips.

Asking For Lawyer Not Evidence of Guilt
Merely asking to speak with a lawyer cannot be considered evidence of guilt. That’s at the heart of a recent decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Citing the defendant’s Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, the appeals court ruled that he successfully invoked those rights by asking for counsel rather than answering a pre-arrest question. (If you’d like to read the full opinion, you can find it here.)
