Attorney Boost’s Twitter lists make it easy for consumers and lawyers to find, follow and engage legal professionals in a variety of legal areas. The company’s twitter lists can be found by visiting AttorneyBoost.com, scrolling to the bottom of the homepage, and clicking on the bluebird icon under the heading “Connect with us”. Once on the company’s profile page, simply select “Lists”.
The lists created by Attorney Boost cover legal areas most needed by the average consumer, including:
Twitter has become a popular and useful tool for networking, research, news updates, public safety and general communication. While attorneys are often labeled as late-adopters, attorneys are becoming increasingly comfortable using social media tools such as Twitter to engage prospects, share relevant news and information with clients and communicate with peers.
By actively using social media tools like Twitter, lawyers make it easier to be found by prospective clients. It also allows lawyers to be perceived by prospects and peers as experts in their preferred area of law.
Lawyers are advised to understand and follow applicable rules of professional responsibility on advertising, confidentiality and the multi-jurisdictional practice of law and to avoid unintentionally creating an actual or expected attorney-client relationship with potential clients.
However, dire warnings from just a couple years advising lawyers to avoid social media engagement except for strictly personal use appear to have been overstated. Thoughtful use of Twitter and other social media tools will keep lawyers on the right side of ethics rules and will enhance lawyers’ accessibility and credibility.
While adding new clients directly from Twitter still may be the exception, Jason M. Romrell, Attorney Boost’s CEO, practicing attorney and long-time tweeter, has encouraged lawyers to get online to better serve their clients. “Our clients are online using Twitter every day, sometimes exposing themselves to unnecessary liability. Whether it’s a pending divorce, DUI defense or a personal injury action, the more we know about these tools from first-hand experience, the better we can advise our clients.”
Even though Twitter has been around since 2006, it is difficult to find useful lists of legal professionals in various subject matter areas actively using Twitter. Attorney Boost hopes to change that by growing and maintaining its lists. Attorneys and legal professionals who want to be included in one or more of the above lists can follow @AttorneyBoost and tweet or DM a request to be added to the applicable lists.
