Before you redesign your law firm's website or start a new internet marketing campaign, it's vital that you pay attention to the Utah Rules of Professional Conduct related to internet marketing. The rules are to ensure that all attorneys promote their practice in a fair and genuine manner. Attorneys that don't abide by these rules may face a type of disciplinary action or sanction, such as expensive fees.
Although the rules in the State of Utah are restrictive, an attorney can stay in full compliance while still having an extremely effective internet marketing campaign. Taking an ethical approach to marketing means following the letter and spirit of each rule.
