On Wednesday, August 4, 2010, at 11:30 a.m. at the Ritz Grill, 15 S. Tejon St., in the Elbo Room, the Solo/Small Firm Section will present “Social Media for Lawyers: Getting Your Feet Wet”. No doubt you’ve heard rumblings about social media and how it’s being used in law practice, but how can you decide if it’s right for you? Where should you even start? Attorneys Tomasz Stasiuk, Stasiuk Firm, and Alli Gerkman, Colorado Bar Association CLE, will introduce you to the most popular social media tools being used by lawyers and give you an overview of how lawyers are using them. Contrary to the hype, social media is no panacea, but depending on your practice, it may prove a useful tool as you work to develop and improve your practice. E-mail or call John Holcomb, email@example.com, 548-8968, or Jim Duve, JCD@DuveLaw.com, 578-5800, if you will attend. You don't have to be a member of the section to attend.
At the Bar, we're advocates for the use of social media in business. You can fan us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to our blog. If you have some time over lunch on the 4th, make sure to attend this program. It promises to be a great presentation and a great way to 'get your feet wet' in the world of social media for attorneys.
