Online marketing is the Wild West for attorneys: ethics rules can’t keep up with constantly evolving channels and networks, and too many marketing “wizards” promise rainfall, only to deliver meaningless stats and big monthly bills. As a veteran of the legal marketing industry and an attorney licensed in seven jurisdictions, presenter Willie Peacock will demystify online attorney advertising, outline the ethics rules and how they apply to channels new and old, and give attorneys a solid foundation to kickstart their marketing efforts and grow their practice.
Willie is an attorney licensed to practice in California since 2011. He has since added admissions in Missouri, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Kansas, and North Dakota.
He was born and raised in Missouri, went to high school and college in California, and returned there to practice law after attending the prestigious Washington and Lee University, School of Law in Lexington, Virginia. He relocated to New York and relaunched his law firm in 2018, focusing exclusively on retirement – estate planning and division of retirement accounts through qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs).
He has written for Thomson Reuters, Clio, and California Lawyer, and his writings have been cited by the American Bar Association, Above the Law, and other leading legal publications.
He is currently rated a perfect 10.0 by Avvo.com, and more importantly, has a perfect 5-star rating from his past clients on all major review sites.

Great course concerning the various marketing methods for lawyers and law firms. Highly recommend.
I've covered a lot of this material in other courses, but presenter still had a few good, new things to point out. I appreciated the state-specific info (even though not for my state). Good to have the specifics.
Very good graphics.

Down to earth presenter, did not feel like an hour!
Very straight-forward. Thank you.
Incredibly knowledgeable, smart on business sense and provided ample ethics support.

i Really enjoyed this presentation. Peacock seemed real, approachable, knowledgeable and professional.
Very helpful info and thank you for providing the info in an easily understandable way. I am often overwhelmed and intimidated by marketing and technology. My two least favorite things to discuss or think about. But you made it less...impossible.
great speaker, informative and funny. Thank you!
Great and really practical information. Definitely worth the time and cost!
Very informative. I only have a website but that appears enough from what I gather from this, although a googlemap could enhance it. It was more about things to stay away from, which was extremely helpful! Really enjoyed it.
good course. Thanks!
Social Media advertising for attorneys increasingly important. Presenter very interesting and knowledgable

I thought this presentation was great--really enjoyed it and gained lots of insight on the topic.
Just want to say, there are a LOT of CLE courses out there. This was one of the top two or three best presentations I have come across. Self-effacing, obviously brilliant, straight shooting ... very informative and helpful. Loved it. And I usually hate CLEs.
The presenter was knowledgeable and hilarious! His presentation regarding legal awards literally had me in stiches. I certainly won't forget his advice
Excellent. A must view course for solo practice attorneys.
Very good presentation.
I didn't realize there were so many ways to advertise.

Appreciated the practice tips delivered during this power hour program.
Took a potentially very dry topic and made it very interesting. Good job
REALLY enjoyed content and presenter.
After the introduction and first few slides, this program is pure jewels.
Willie knows what he is doing and did a great job at communicating that.
This course was great for purposes of online marketing and ethical considerations, particularly for myself as a solo practitioner. While I don't use my website often (all my clients are referrals), I've been attempting to be better, and it's easy to overlook certain details. Easy cadence to the presenter, and good luck with the terrible twos. :)
this course was quite informative both from a technical as well as an ethical standpoint. Presenter was both knowledgeable as well as amusing.
A CLE with practical application
Every lawyer can gain from watching this informative presentation.
This topic was great! Thanks!
Great insight Re marketing and ethics. I hope this encourages better ethics

Well done. Very practical.
