Well, it turns out that Lawyers.com didn’t hire the Mad Men to put together a knockoff of the “I [fill in the blank] in my maidenform bra” advertising campaign after all. Somebody else, possibly a porno site, hijacked their good name. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here and here.

Lawyers.com is a highly reputable lawyer selection web site, operated by Lexis-Nexis. That organization was unaware of the ploy until it was reported in the AVVO blog. Conrad Saam, who posted the story on AVVO, was unaware that the ads, which appeared as tweets on Twitter, did not originate from Lawyers.com. So we were all fooled.

Many apologies to Lawyers.com and Lexis-Nexis.
