Utah Bar Rules for Attorney Advertising

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. 

The Utah Bar Rules that are applicable to Internet marketing may seem restrictive. On the otherhand, it's important that attorneys market themselves in a way without deceit to clients or mudslinging to other firms. You can, however, still have an effective online advertising campaign whilst staying in compliance. Researching the proper search engine terms, how search engine algorithims function, and other relevant techniques can help you boost your presence online.
