depending on the type of case there’s
00:06
usually there’s some different types of
00:08
advice in a family case probably the
00:10
most important is to get off social
00:12
media one of the biggest problems that
00:15
I’ve found is that clients that are
00:16
going through a family dispute be it a
00:19
divorce a modification perhaps even
00:22
facing termination of parental rights a
00:24
lot of times they are very very anxious
00:27
and looking for support unfortunately in
00:31
our culture nowadays people seem to
00:32
reach out with social media and most of
00:35
the time the posts or the information
00:37
that’s being provided is not necessarily
00:40
as private as one would expect or
00:43
anticipate and so their posts sometimes
00:46
done and the heat of the moment or when
00:49
they’re very emotional or upset are then
00:51
taken out of context and used against
00:53
them so I definitely encourage people to
00:55
journal I would just prefer that it
00:57
would be done in the old fashioned way
00:59
with pen and ink as opposed to online
01:01
and in the litigation context when a
01:04
client asked me what’s the best thing
01:08
they can do to help their case what I
01:09
like to tell them is just to conduct
01:11
themselves as if the judge the jury the
01:15
opposing counsel and even myself are
01:17
with them at all times just kind of
01:19
watching what they do hearing what they
01:22
say and participating in what they’re
01:26
doing because what we want to make sure
01:27
is that when you’re in a litigation
01:28
context that you conduct yourself in the
01:31
most favorable way that you possibly can
01:34
a lot of times very very good people can
01:36
put themselves in situations that can be
01:39
taken out of context and used against
01:41
them and so what we try to do when we’re
01:43
in litigation is to make sure that our
01:46
clients don’t knowingly put themselves
01:49
into a compromising position
01:51
