  • William Reid Wittliff

    Slade is one of the few lawyers I know that has a deep understanding of both the online (including mobile) advertising space and the rules and regulations that govern it. He also has sound judgment and a common sense approach. He is my "go to" guy whenever I have an Internet advertising question.
