Behind the Eight BallWhat is an attorney to do?  Depending on the state you live in, paid marketing services from vendors such as Avvo can be in the legal cross hairs of your state ethics committees.  Pasts blogs, ‘Ethics Opinion on Fee-Sharing is bad news for Avvo Legal Services' and ‘Attorney Malpractice—Paid ‘Marketing Fees’ Violate New Jersey Lawyer Professional Conduct Rules’ have pointed out the patchwork by state of this ethics issue.

In the article written in ‘The Law For Lawyers Today’, By Karen Rubin, the ABA effort to addressing some electronica ad rules did not address the Avvo paid marketing services issue.  So are paid marketing services ethical?  It depends.
