Social Media is here to stay.

There are more than 330 million active users monthly on Twitter. Facebook has 1.5 BILLION active monthly users. LinkedIn has 546 million registered users of which almost 1/3 are in the United States. YouTube boasts that they have 1 BILLION users and more than 400 hours of video are uploaded every minute! (Statistics provided by DMR)

Then there is blogging, Pinterest, Instagram, SnapChat, TikTok; there are direct message apps like Slack, Disciple. New social sharing sites being created every day.

Social media is a wonderful place to showcase your knowledge and to position yourself as the go-to-authority (social media marketing). You can connect with potential clients and referral sources (social media networking) to grow your practice as long as you know how to use it. And that is what this seminar will teach you.

But more importantly, this seminar will talk about the ethics issues that accompany the use of social media by attorneys. In fact, there are a myriad of ethics rules that are tied to the use of these sites including:

• Rule 1.1: Competence
• Rule 1.8: Duties to Prospective Clients
• Rule 1.6: Confidentiality
• Rule 1.8: Conflicts of Interest – Current Clients
• Rule 1.9: Duties to Former Clients
• Rule 5.5: Unauthorized Practice of Law
• Rule 7.1: Communication Concerning a Lawyer’s Services
• Rule 7.2: Communications Concerning A Lawyer’s Services (Specific Rules)
• Rule 7.3: Solicitation of Clients
• Rule 3.6 Trial Publicity
• Rule 8.4 Misconduct

And we will spend a lot of time discussing these rules in the context of social media marketing and social media networking.

Jaimie B. Field, Esq.

The Rain Maker

Jaimie B. Field, Esq. has been involved in the legal industry since the age of twelve. She worked at her grandfather’s law firm in NYC and her father’s firm in New Jersey during breaks from school. It was because of that experience that she wanted to attend law school and become an attorney.

She enjoyed her years at Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia and was lucky to obtain a job upon graduation as an in-house associate for a start-up entertainment company owned by the Jackson Family. As it was a brand new company, there were very few people on staff, so she began being called upon to perform tasks other than those related to law, including business development, marketing and public relations. It was there she discovered a passion and natural talent for that aspect of her job.

Thus began a 23 year odyssey to learn and apply all aspects of marketing to help companies grow.

Even though Jaimie was fully entrenched in the marketing arena, she had never gotten far away from the law. Companies she worked with would enlist her help with projects which utilized the skills and knowledge she learned in law school.

Seeing a business opportunity, Jaimie opened Marketing Field, LLC in 2002. It would become a marketing and business development consultancy devoted solely to law firms to help them grow by finding ethical solutions to getting new clients and marketing their firms.

In 2008, Marketing Field’s focus shifted. In addition to marketing, Jaimie had been training and coaching her clients to become Rainmakers, growing their books of business. Now, as THE-RAIN-MAKER she spends all of her time teaching attorneys to become rainmakers. She truly believes that anyone who has the ambition and drive can use their individual personalities to create the law practice they want with the right teacher. As her tagine says: Rainmakers are not Born, They are Taught.

Her seminars are always entertaining and informative and she has found a way to motivate attorneys when they can’t seem to motivate themselves. She works one-on-one with lawyers, provides live and telephonic group training, works within law firm settings to provide bespoke training to the attorneys which meshes with the culture of the firm and provides workshops and on-site Rainmaking Seminars with Ethics CLES.
