When you endorse a fellow lawyer, you lend our credibility and authority. You’re proclaiming to the world, “I know this attorney and trust him in this particular field of practice.”
What happens when you recommend or endorse a lawyer for skills he or she does not possess?
How about sending someone to a lawyer for divorce only to be told that the attorney practices only in an unrelated field?
Our strongest currency is our credibility.
Squander that and there’s nothing left, professionally and personally.
Better off refraining from making the recommendation.
Spend your currency where it will do the most good.
