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 divorces, 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, includingpersonal 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.
