Tom Ciesielka: PR for Lawyers

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Tom Ciesielka discuss:

  • Reason why lawyers and law firms may need to work with a PR firm. 
  • Mitigating problems and promoting or publicizing when appropriate.
  • Public relations and social media.
  • Delegating social media to get it personalized for you when you have time.


Key Takeaways:

  • In PR, your words have to be just as precise as they would need to be in a law brief. 
  • Getting out first is a great way to put yourself in front of others.
  • Social media often drives mainstream media.
  • LinkedIn is both social and professional. It is a great way to connect with those you may not otherwise be able to.
