I was privileged to serve on a panel last Saturday at the American Bar Association’s Annual Conference in San Francisco to address the subject, Tweeting Won’t Make You a Twit: Effective Twitter Marketing and Networking for Lawyers.

I wanted to share some of the most common questions I usually get asked when I talk about social media marketing for attorneys at our Rainmaker Retreat events. I’ve included links to past posts here that provide the best answers:
