About me

Ethan founded the social media law firm to provide solutions to social media legal issues to businesses and start ups.


In many respects, Ethan’s legal and educational careers have paralleled the explosive growth and development of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. For the last eight years, he worked as social media law attorney, author, professor, consultant, and keynote speaker. Recognizing the need for rules of the road as social media expanded and became more entrenched in the world, Ethan serves as an advisor to leaders in both the legal and business communities as they seek to implement practical and ethical guidelines in their workplaces. According to Chambers USA, an international guide that ranks law firms and attorneys, Ethan “has developed legal skills and knowledge that exceed his years of practice.”

  • Michael Alex Wasylik

    I had the chance to get to know Ethan when we both presented at a CLE session at Nova Southeastern University. Ethan is very knowledgeable about his field and has an excellent reputation in the community. In addition, he is a dynamic speaker and an excellent communicator. I would recommend anyone in South Florida with a complex commercial litigation matter give Ethan a call.
