Internet Attorney: Saying FU to the Judge

Imagine you got in trouble with the law but were given probation if you went through counseling.

Would you take advantage of the counseling as a second chance or ditch it because you’re smarter than the judge who cut you
some slack? Lindsay Lohan made the second choice, then showed up in court with “f**k u” painted on her middle finger of a hand that she
kept pointing at the judge.

The payoff? 90 days in jail for the supertramp. You don’t have to be an Internet attorney to understand how stupid that choice was.

However, Internet marketing gurus you know are doing the same thing right now to the government. Their websites are promising health and wealth if you just buy their products.

What you’re not seeing is behind-the-scenes scurrying as lawsuits get filed, merchant accounts get canceled, etc. They flipped the finger and now some are paying the consequences. When you tick off enough government agencies or angry clients, there isn’t much an Internet attorney can do to protect you after-the-fact.

You know what the right thing is to do. You know what makes you sleep easy at night with peace of mind. Do it.

To your long-term success,

-Mike the Internet attorney
