Whether you choose to be online or not (and you should be online) your clients will write you reviews. Unfortunately, angry clients are much more likely to write about you than happy clients. This webinar will explore the ethical and practical issues surrounding getting good reviews as well as discuss how you should respond when someone bashes you online. Lawyers have been disciplined for their responses to online reviews. Learn from their mistakes!\
This program covers issues addressed in Rule 1.6, as well as numerous related Ethics Opinions from various jurisdictions.
Opinions and positions stated by presenters of MoBarCLE programs are those of the presenters and not necessarily those of The Missouri Bar.
