Those of you who know Greenfield, know that he’s often at the opposite side of the spectrum from me. Though a great blogger at Simple Justice, Greenfield makes the case that social media is swamped by those lawyers just looking to get followers and make un-warranted name for themselves. I may be painting broadly but I’m close on Greenfield’s position.
Though there’s always some bad with the good, I’m of the firm belief that social media offers lawyers a ton. Both as a way to become a better lawyer and as way to get legal work the old fashioned way — by networking to build relationships and enhance your reputation as a good lawyer.
Take a look at the Bloomberg segment. It’s only nine minutes. And thanks Scott and Ed, I enjoyed myself.
