A Lawyer With Connections

Last week I attended a Federal criminal defense conference. One of the presentations discussed the increase in social media and how it plays a part in everything we do today. When one of the speakers began polling the audience of defense lawyers as to how many of them had heard of or used services like Twitter, Skype, Second Life, LinkedIn, and the like, I was shocked to see how few hands I saw in the air.

After a break some of the attorneys were chatting and singled me out as being the only one who kept raising his hand. My response: move out of the way.

In a world where you’re connected to your friends, family, and colleagues, shouldn’t your attorney be connected too? Shouldn’t your attorney understand how social networks operate? How they can be used to incriminate you or claim your INNOCENCE? I think so!

And if the older generation of attorneys doesn’t get it now, should you be getting them? You should be going with the attorney who understands how you think, how you operate, and how you connect with the world. That’s just another reason why you should contact me to defend your case.

Message me – tweet me – txt me – even call – I’ll be there waiting to fight for you!

Pretrials with a Touch of Tech

At one of my pretrials this morning I was speaking with my client outside of the courtroom. As he asked me whether I had received the discovery from the prosecutor yet, I was able to pull out my iPad, hop online, download the reports, and share what the police were alleging in his case.

It’s amazing to think that for years the only way defense attorneys learned what was in the police reports was from having a prosecutor read it to us word for word. Today I can have the reports and photos at my fingertips in an instant!

Of course not every lawyer uses this technology to his advantage, but I insist that I stay on the cutting edge of what’s available in order to provide my clients with every possible advantage. Call me and see how we can use leading technology to enhance your defense.
