Definition of an Endorsement
- An endorsement is an active statement about the quality of services or products.
- Merely being a friend, follower, or contact on social media isn’t considered an endorsement.
Endorsements from the Firm
- We limit our endorsements to other lawyers and our current or former clients.
- An endorsement is only given if we have first-hand knowledge of your services or products.
- For clients: We have used or tested your services or products.
- For peers: We have worked with you in court, on a bar committee, or on a continuing education panel.
- We only endorse a client upon their request, and we will not post new endorsements while representing you in a disputed matter.
