Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne does not work for Brown & Little, P.L.C. When I complained about you guys linking other lawyers’ profiles to our site, you said you fixed it. I thought that would be the end of the problem, but now, Mr. Horne’s Avvo page directs people to our website.
I know that Scott Greenfield made the comment that, “if you’re going to screw up and have links from one attorney go to another, can you at least link Matt’s website to some really good lawyers rather than losers?” If you thought he was serious, I do appreciate that you found us Arizona’s most well-known attorney, a Harvard Law School grad with forty years of experience who has served as a judge, as the state superintendent of schools, and in the state legislature, but your time would have been better spent poking around Simple Justice and reading some of Scott’s posts. He’s a funny guy, and I’m pretty sure his comment here was in jest.
Sadly, the problem doesn’t stop with the incoming link, as we keep getting emails asking us to view Mr. Horne’s profile. The emails also provide a link to claim it. As endless and humorous as the possibilities might be if a couple of defense lawyers claimed the Avvo profile of the chief legal officer of the state of Arizona, Adrian and I have far better things to do with our time. I imagine there might be a few ethical problems with that as well.
Is it too much to just ask you to leave us alone? We haven’t bothered claiming our own profiles, and I’m doubtful Mr. Horne wants us to claim his. Although other lawyers may think Avvo is the bee’s knees, it just isn’t our cup of tea. If you’d stop the emails and remove the links, we’d be thankful. I bet Mr. Horne would be too.
