Flashy advertisements draw clients to Sarasota law firm of Finebloom and Haenel

Flashy advertisements draw clients to Sarasota law firm of Finebloom and Haenel

The law firm of Finebloom and Haenel represents motorists throughout the State of Florida on everything from a ticket, suspended license, DUI, and all misdemeanor and Felonies. They can be reached toll free at 1-800-FIGHT-IT.

SARASOTA COUNTY - In one of the starchiest professions, lawyer David Haenel stands out like neon as the area's most innovative self-promoter.

His car glows at night with his firm's Web site, . The lighted vehicle wrap uses cutting-edge technology that the creator says has been installed on only 30 vehicles nationwide. Almost every night, people roll down their window in traffic and ask about the car or tell of a friend who might need their help. Haenel tosses them a key chain with his firm's phone number.

He has two Segway personal transporters displaying his firm's logo, has 30 Web sites, hired an in-house marketer focusing on blogs and registered a trademarked slogan: "Got arrested? Get us." These are not the traditional, sedate phone book advertisements or television spots from lawyers in suits next to a Doric column. And they have drawn grumbles of criticism from some peers who say such advertising tarnishes the dignity of the profession.

But Finebloom & Haenel's marketing push has paid off. Since the effort began five years ago, the firm has expanded from one to five offices, even as the economic downturn has many law firms struggling. Haenel's aggressive online push even led lawyers like well-established criminal defense Derek Byrd to start their own Web sites, more from this source................

Florida red-light cameras, Attorney David Haenel says “This is about money and nothing else.”

David Haenel and his law partner Darren Finebloom have spent years building their criminal defense practice in Sarasota and Tampa. They are well versed in all areas of criminal defense and specialize in traffic cases and DUI so when the Bradenton Herald reporter Robert Napper needed to speak with an attorney for his August 25th article entitled “Bradenton facing red-light camera lawsuit” he called the Law Offices of Finebloom & Haenel to get their views on the new red-light cameras that have been installed in Manatee County.

The article came about after a class action lawsuit was filed in Orlando against red-light cameras in that city. The lawyer who filed the suit then said he planned to add Bradenton to his list of cities his firm will sue in Florida. The suit claims that the red light cameras do not identify drivers only cars and the owner of the car is presumed guilty, which is the opposite of the standard which is presumed innocent until proven guilty. If the suit is certified as a class action, more plaintiffs are expected to be added.

David brought a new dimension to the argument against red-light cameras when he spoke with the Bradenton Herald. He made the point that the city police will determine violations from the photos taken by the cameras and the appeals process will go through the city’s code enforcement board.

“The city will be policing itself, and that is crazy,” David told Mr. Napper in Tuesday’s Bradenton Herald. “This is about money and nothing else.” more from this source..................
