Some personal injury lawyers continue abuse of legal blogs

I’m a lawyer. I copy and paste stories of jury trials detailing horrific injuries and large dollar verdicts from online newspapers to my blog. I don’t necessarily represent any of the parties to the lawsuit.

I just cut and paste the text in entirety without changing or summarizing anything. I don’t add any commentary or insight. I don’t know anything about Internet marketing but I hear this is a good way to get to the top of Google.

You can see I am more than qualified to represent you or a loved one who’s been injured as a result of another’s negligence.

Sounds nuts, but that appears to be what the lawyer publishing this personal injury law blog is saying. Look at his latest post.

Maybe the guy is a decent lawyer, but the only thing we know he can do is hit the CTRL+c for copy and CTRL+v for paste on his keyboard.

Am I the only one sickened by this type of marketing? As a plaintiff’s trial lawyer of 17 years I tried to uphold the image of our profession at all times. Including with my Internet marketing. This kind of crap is awfully disappointing.
