Legal Victory - BATES v. STATE BAR of ARIZONA

Until 1977, lawyers were generally barred from public advertising. John Bates, Esq. changed that. Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court upheld the right of lawyers to advertise their services. In holding that lawyer advertising was commercial speech entitled to protection under the First Amendment (incorporated against the States through the Fourteenth Amendment), the Court upset the tradition against advertising by lawyers, rejecting it as an antiquated rule of etiquette.

The Court emphasized the benefits of the information that flows to consumers through advertising, positing that lawyer advertising would make legal services more accessible to the general public and improve the overall administration of justice.


Although legal advertising in phone books still remains the most popular and prominent in our society, new forms of advertising have emerged. Television advertisements are a relatively new form of advertising and are becoming increasingly more popular. The newest form of advertising by law firms and lawyers is over the internet. Internet advertising helps victims find a lawyer to represent their case. (Wikipedia)

*****
Congratulations, attorneys, for gaining protection for your free speech rights through the United States Supreme Court. Things have certainly Changed since 1977. Wikipedia reports, "In the top 75 television markets nationwide, 2,000 lawyers advertise on television and spend close to $200 million collectively on advertising." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_advertising_in_the_United_States

Until advertising was legalized for attorneys, law firms relied on referrals. Being applauded in my Legal Victories blog for cases you won, or allowing me to read your opinions and findings about legal issues on Blogtalkradio before large audiences, combine two forms of advertising: third-party word-of-mouth advertising on the Internet - and this is free. Many people are seeking your services, and I want everyone with civil or criminal case to have adequate legal representation. Let's make it happen.

More ideas for advertising your services are offered in "Justice Gagged" blog at an article entitled "Free Legal Services Advertising: Pro Bono" at

  2. Hello, Andrew Felix. I will read short essays aloud on either the "Human Rights for Prisoners March" broadcast or the "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" broadcast for any attorney who wants to comment on one of the six subjects above (closing date March 15, 2014). A lawyer or firm can also provide an mp3 recording, if preferred. We wish to introduce readers to lawyers who are interested in my subject matter: legal victories for the People.

    Secondly, if any attorney provides pro bono legal services to any person whose circumstances are addressed in my blogs, we will thank the law firm often on the radio broadcasts, whether or not the case is won (limited to "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog and "Human Rights for Prisoners March" blog and "Davis-MacPhail Truth Committee" blog).

    Thanks for asking for more information about the free advertising.

    Attorney Robin Yeamans, a California divorce attorney, recently granted us an interview. She chose to discuss her pro bono work for homeless and mentally ill clients who use the legal clinic where she volunteers her services. Please listen to the broadcast: "Human Rights for Prisoners March, January 7, 2014"
