David Abeshouse was quoted by the online site, LawMarketing Portal, on August 1st, 2007, in an article entitled, "91% of Lawyers Unhappy about Lack of Marketing Training in Law School," by Larry Bodine:  
'Yes -- Learning about lawyer marketing takes a fundamentally different set of mental and emotional capabilities than does learning about the law. It would be a fallacy to assume that simply because one can grasp thorny legal principles, one therefore can truly understand the ins and outs of legal marketing. And then putting them into practice is a wholly different venture altogether,' said David Abeshouse, Law Office of David J. Abeshouse, Uniondale, NY.

Understanding the Legal Implications of Social Media

As a business owner, you will encounter legal issues with every piece of your business – even where you didn’t think they could exist.  Social media presents a growing set of legal issues, affecting every aspect of operating a business and doing business.  As the laws are still running to catch up to technology – and new cases are setting precedents every day – what should business owners know?  You’ll hear from experts on intellectual property, websites, social media tools and content, advertising and data privacy – from the perspective of corporate concerns, human resource issues, current cases (and what the decisions will mean moving forward) and resolving related disputes.
