Did you know…?
The dangers of social media and litigation.
Going through litigation is difficult. It is an expensive, lengthy and stressful process for all involved and it is tempting to want to vent your feelings in public, whether to sway public opinion or just to feel like you are keeping friends, family, and acquaintances informed. This can especially be true if you feel your opponent has treated you unfairly. However, if litigation is in your future, do yourself a favor and keep your thoughts about your case and your opponent between yourself and your lawyer. Public statements in forums like Facebook, can end your case before it even gets started. In the heat of litigation, or potential litigation, tempers can flare and posting comments about your thoughts can make you feel better in the short term, but if you wish to avoid the risk of damaging your case – mum is the word.
