Attorney Alex Rosenthal recently spoke at a meeting of the Florida Lawyers
Network, addressing the ethical pitfalls of advising a client on their
social media activity. The lecture, titled "The Issue of the Ethical
Considerations of Counseling Clients on the Modifications to Social Media
Pages" was presented on December 13 for the Florida Lawyers Network
West Broward Chapter at the Lago Mar Country Club.
From the Florida Lawyers Network
website: "The Florida Lawyers Network (FLN) is a statewide network of highly-skilled
and well-qualified lawyers in each area of practice throughout Florida.
Each Member must have at least five years of experience and must be well-versed
and knowledgeable in his or her designated area of practice."
FLN holds a number of different events throughout the year to better inform
its members on the significant issues facing their practice area. Many
of these events qualify as Continuing Legal Education (CLE) events, which
are crucial to maintaining membership with the Florida Bar.
Attorney Rosenthal's presentation addressed a matter that attorneys
across numerous practice areas have had to face: advising clients on their
social media activity (and existing content) prior to litigation. He spoke
about Florida Bar Ethics Advisory Option 14-1, which does apply to social
media considerations when clients inquire about their account privacy
settings or deleting previous content before a trial.
Rosenthal Law Group would like to thank the Florida Lawyers Network for
holding this month's meeting and for all those that attended "The
Issue of the Ethical Considerations of Counseling Clients on the Modifications
to Social Media Pages" session.
