Just because you can do a thing in Photoshop doesn’t mean that you should.

It’s not done very well, either.


campingn00b t1_j9mmwkp wrote

I think this is the thing that bothers me most. It's a bad photoshop but not like clearly intentionally bad. The substance of the ad doesn't even call attention to the image. There's no reason for it other than to make this old guy feel like he's attractive. It really creeps me out

You can get a good photoshop done for dirt cheap these days too.


LivingMemento t1_j9mnx9i wrote

Pretty sure bad photoshop is on purpose. Gives commuters something to talk about…and they are talking about Morgan & Morgan. For The People.


SockGnome t1_j9m5hw6 wrote

What a gross fucking family. I also hate the law that plaintiff attorneys got repealed that lets them advertise like this. Terrible all around

Fucking a “for the people” as they take 40% of your settlement and throw another 30% to the Dr Nick doctors they convinced you to go to. Yeah, neat grift. Fuckers.


batmansmotorcycle t1_j9oju5x wrote

What law did they get appealed? Should lawyers not enjoy the freedoms of the First Amendment like you?


SockGnome t1_j9olkv6 wrote

I believe that was their argument, it was once illegal for lawyers to advertise like they do now. The current issue is misleading information as seen in this story:

I also just find it incredibly distasteful and if I ever need a lawyer, I’m personally refusing to do business with anyone who has a giant advertising war-chest and appears on billboards. Plastering how much money they claim to get on a billboard is gross and there is always more legal analysis to the story which can’t be explained on a billboard as people drive past going 70MPH. It’s pithy, too simplistic and makes torts appear to be a lottery. It boils our culture down to one thing, the dollar. That it.


batmansmotorcycle t1_j9oyrbn wrote

Yes, that was their argument. In full disclosure, I am an attorney so I have a bias in this. I am not an ambulance chaser like Morgan and Morgan. I think that there is a fine line in advertising where you want people to have access to the justice system and you have to get the word out to do that then you have this crap which is just sad. In all likelihood, M&M never touches the case and just acts as a referral service and gets a fee. This is what Jim Sokolove did back in the day, remember those commercials?


SockGnome t1_j9oz66s wrote

Attorneys can certainly advertise tastefully but these giant mills seem to just try and smother out everyone else. I grew up watching those commercials! When my friend was in law school he told me about their racket, take the case and vend it out to another firm to do the work, take a cut as a finders fee. I have a hunch he rarely took cases unless there was serious meat on the bone.


batmansmotorcycle t1_j9pc78e wrote

That is 100% what they do, in fact Jim had a disclaimer at one point on his commercials that stated just as much.


CoolAbdul t1_j9qb3c5 wrote

Have you seen Jim Sokolove's yacht? Being a white trash ambulance chaser pays big.


MyRespectableAlt t1_j9m9rh7 wrote

You're talking about it.

Can't ever reward annoying advertising by talking about it. Just ignore it. It's the only way we're going to beat their game.


fruit_cats t1_j9mqo86 wrote

Seriously, this person took the time to:

  • notice this billboard

  • take a photo of the billboard

  • share it on social media

The law firm can’t ask for more than that from their ad.

I hate their slogan: “There can only be one Morgan & Morgan”

dude there’s 2


alohadave t1_j9mn2tv wrote

I know you're taking the piss, but "Morgan & Morgan" is a single entity. That's how law firms are named.

Morgan & Morgan appreciates you spreading their message beyond the drivers on 93.

I’m glad I do…reminds me who not to call for a lawyer. They’re a joke.


loranlily t1_j9oif7z wrote

I remember this one bc they have a billboard visible from my apartment that had the same image on.


Nobel6skull t1_j9o1biz wrote

Just another reason to ban billboards.


nealien79 t1_j9o72k3 wrote

I keep seeing a commercial on TV for these lawyers where that overweight lawyer is standing next to all these MMA fighters who are training, and he’s talking about how tough of a lawyer he is.

I really wish lawyers weren’t allowed to advertise like this, it feels like they are just praying on people who need cash quick to try suing people and businesses for the smallest reasons. Plus these types of ads/billboards just look like shit.


occupybourbonst t1_j9oa3ry wrote

Why? So people post it on social media and give them attention.

Shock tactics work in viral advertising and it's why you see it so often.
