Episode Notes

The Law Practice Division (LPD) Legal Marketing Interest Group Chair Jason Marsh interviews immediate past chair of the LPD Chair Michael Downey at the 2015 ABA Midyear Meeting. Downey discusses what lawyers and law firms can do to market their businesses ethically, the variance between states when advertising online, and how he became featured in large publications like The New York Times and Wall Street Journal Law Blog. He advises young lawyers to become known in a niche market, find a way to build online credibility through a blog for example, and develop real relationships in order to be successful in their practice. After working in a large law firm for 15 years, Michael Downey started a solo practice this year advising law firms on legal ethics and risk management issues and representing lawyers and clients in lawyer discipline and legal malpractice matters.
