Attorney Video While Driving? Give Me a Break

Why do lawyers still insist on creating video in their cars? I just wrote a YouLaw review on this which will go live in 2 weeks which skewers the entire concept of creating video in your moving car.

Here’s a hint: The lawyer should have been pulled over for DWV (a new crime I created called Driving While Videotaping) and wrote about this a few wks ago when an attorney was ordering food at a fast food restaurant while taping a video.

Now, comes another one: Bankruptcy Lawyer on the go. UGHH!

Watch this video, and tell me, if you were a consumer looking for an attorney, would you consider this guy to be your “go-to” expert? Would he be the one you put your trust and faith in to answer all of your legal questions and problems? Let me know, I want feedback.

    Hey, Gerry. Thanks for the plug. I haven't ever heard of you until now. You were brought to my attention by another attorney who says you're a marketing guru. After watching the video below the post about my video, I can see why you're in such high demand. Literally blew me away.

    I respectfully disagree with your assessment of Attorney on the Go. Seriously, do I sound like an idiot in my videos? No. Would you hire me? Of course you would, because the unscripted content I provide is informative and to the point and reflects my specific knowledge about the subject matter.

    Whether you're sitting behind a desk, in your living room or in a car, you have to sound like you know your subject matter.

    Gerry, I'm a closer in any medium. My television and radio spots kill, and my direct mail is a homing beacon to my front door. Heck, I virtually created an industry of marketing foreclosure defense to the middle-class. I should be teaching lawyers how to market, but I've chosen to be a full time lawyer because I'm even better in the courtroom.

    Marketing is a simple function of time and money. You determine a level commitment to marketing, and meet that commitment with the a blend of both. More time means less money spent and vice versa.

    We should talk some time.

    Hi Chip, thanks for your reply. I have no dispute about your legal abilities. In fact, I'm sure you're an excellent attorney.

    My critique comes from the manner in which you provided educational content. I love the fact that you educate your viewer with useful and timely information. I think that's the key to using video.

    My comments are the venue in which you do it. As I write in my detailed review, the scenery is distracting from your message.

    You are also correct when you say that it doesn't matter where you create your informational message. However, when that message gets lost because the viewer is distracted from what is going on around you, then, in my opinion, that's something to comment on.

    I will tell you that I found your switch from the camera angle on one side of the car to the other to be fascinating.

    Best regards,

    Chip- I have to apologize for the last sentence in my reply. It actually refers to the attorney video review I did that will be posted next week, and does not apply to your video.

I found Gerry’s approach to be a common sense approach to… what people are looking for. It’s not necessarily what we think our video should be, it’s really what people are searching for. Gerry’s made a study of how people search the web and what they need from lawyers and then he’s able to communicate that on video. That’s what I really found intriguing: the methodology by which we shoot the videos and the way that he communicates that methodology.
