Social media do’s and don’ts

It’s important to remember that even though your privacy settings may be high, someone may pose as a friend of yours when in reality they are someone involved in the case trying to get details that you don’t want to reveal. Information can be twisted, even when you mean it as a joke. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

If you have a lawsuit in progress:DO

  • Keep information to yourself, especially on the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Even though you may have high privacy settings, that doesn’t mean certain people won’t read it.
  • Tell your attorney if someone has contacted you with questions about the lawsuit and refer questions to the firm.
  • Keep your accounts professional. Everyone can see your profile picture.


  • Insult any judges, opposing sides, insurance companies, or anyone involved in the case on Facebook or other social networks.
  • Discuss any information about the case online, just like you shouldn’t in real life.
  • Answer questions you may receive about the case. Forward them to us.
  • Have any incriminating photos of you on social networks, including Facebook and MySpace. That means anything illegal OR anything you wouldn’t want your religious leader seeing you do.
