Be Careful of What You Post on Facebook

Be careful of what you post on Facebook! While this former Miami defense attorney’s behavior may seem like an extreme example, it should serve as a warning to all attorneys and law students.

Even if you think they are “private,” your social media tweets and posts enter the public domain and can hurt your reputation, violate professional standards and risk your job and bar license.  Be wary of even posting about a client or case you’re working on, and always be careful of what opinions you put out there.
