Client Recommendations Guidelines
Authentic Client Recommendations
Recommendations must be written and submitted by clients and accurately reflect their experience with the recommended attorney.
No Compensation for Recommendations
Clients may not receive compensation or other inducements to provide a recommendation.
The content of a recommendation shall be in a style consistent with providing a recommendation. Recommendations shall not contain any of the following: (1) confidential information; (2) statements that can be construed as misleading; (3) threatening, defamatory, profane, vulgar, and obscene language; (4) disparaging or hateful comments including those based on gender, age, appearance, race, sexual orientation, ethnic background, locality, or religion; (5) unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of solicitation.
Violation of State and State Bar Ethics and Advertising Rules
Submitted recommendations must comply with the individual state laws of the state in which an attorney practices. Please consult your attorney and or your state and state bar's ethics and advertising rules prior to submitting your recommendation if you are unsure whether the recommendation is acceptable.
A screen name that is associated with a recommendation may not be misleading such that it may be interpreted to be impersonating another person or entity.
