Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) August 12, 2012
Actos bladder cancer victims now have a Facebook page where they can get a free legal review of their potential bladder cancer claim, announced attorney Michael J. Evans, creator of the page. “People can visit the Actos Lawsuit Help Facebook Page and click on the “Lawsuit Review” tab to get a quick, free evaluation of their potential legal case,” Evans said.
Evans is one of the attorneys with an Actos Lawsuit legal website with a free Actos lawsuit review form. “Free Actos case evaluations are also available by calling 800-671-0996 toll-free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Evans.
Evans said he decided to create the Facebook page to make it convenient for Facebook users to get a quick legal review of their potential Actos lawsuit.
There are at least two reasons some attorneys who engage in legal Internet marketing have been reluctant to use social media for law firms, Evans said.
"First is a legitimate concern that law firm marketing using social media could violate the ethics rules governing attorney advertising. Law firms can't simply hire a great social media consultant. They need to hire a great social media consultant who also understands ethics rules governing attorney advertising and solicitation. Another option is for a law firm to designate one of their attorneys to handle social media for the law firm."
Evans said he recently posted an article on his blog discussing the ethical use of social media for law firms.
"The second reason I believe some law firms avoid Facebook is the belief that the Facebook audience is comprised of young people who aren’t in the target demographic for most law firm marketing."
“But almost everyone uses Facebook now,” Evans said. “Facebook had over 150 million U.S. users in May, according to CBS News. It's actually rare to find a person who doesn’t use Facebook. In fact, Forbes recently published an article titled “Beware, Tech Abandoners. People Without Facebook Accounts Are 'Suspicious.”
"When I started creating legal websites twelve years ago, I wanted to make it easy for people anywhere in the U.S. to hire competent attorneys in the comfort of their own homes. I view the use of Facebook pages as the next logical step in law firm Internet marketing. This Facebook page makes it easier and more engaging for people who need legal help," said Evans.
