Some Things To Know about Texas Lawyer Advertising.

But how can you learn about what things matter for your representation and what is just advertising?
Any lawyer who graduates from law school can set up a website and say they do criminal law. Here are some legitimate non-paid ad sites that you can use to check out potential lawyers to hire:
Texas Board of Legal Specialization Website. (Bill Stradley’s link). This shows those lawyers who are Board Certified in a Specialization.
State Bar of Texas Website (Bill Stradley’s link and Stephanie Stradley’s link). This shows whether a lawyer is in good standing with the State Bar of Texas and whether they have any disciplinary actions against them.
A number of other websites require payment for a lawyer to be listed in them or to have more visible placement.
