Over the Top Lawyer Advertising

The terrific "tabloid" Law Blawg, Above the Law caught my attention (and apparently, the attention of the Texas Bar), with its story about this Lindeman, Alvarado & Frye criminal defense firm that focuses on soliciting child sex rapists, child porn collectors and other miscreants for its client base.  It ran a series of ads that I discussed with disgust previously--the ads featured images that bordered on child porn and violent porn.  You see a lot of funny, awkward, offensive, and annoying lawyer ads, but you rarely see advertisements from Lawyers that are calculated to appeal to predators, but somehow this firm managed it.  For more (including the "screen shots" from the original ads):



  1. Well that's just creepy as hell. :|

  2. Chicago band JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound did a hilarious take on these commercials for their music video “Everything Will Be Fine” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-8Iav4UbQY&feature=channel_video_title
