The Rhode Island Association for Justice (RIAJ) will host an upcoming seminar
to discuss the impact of
social media and
electronic discovery in modern day
family law cases. Due to his history in the field and respected reputation,
Attorney Timothy Conlon of TJC ESQ has been selected as an honored panelist during the seminar.
With social media growing ever more popular, it is really no surprise that
it has influenced all facets of our lives, including
child custody disputes, and the like. Facebook posts, Instagram photos, Snapchat stories, and
the briefest of Tweets can all heavily and surprisingly influence how
a family law case pans out. It may even impact other forms of litigation,
personal injury and criminal defense. In order to prepare RIAJ members for the road ahead
and the arguments of any opposing counsel, the seminar panelists will
be exploring any and all questions that are brought forth.
A main focus of the discussion will be educating clients early in a case
about how to use – or not use – social media while a case
is pending. The uncertain “dangers” of uploading the wrong
post or saying the wrong comment are varied and many. It is up to Rhode
Island attorneys to protect their clients from legal ramifications by
spreading useful knowledge around.
