DON’T TEXT YOUR LAWYER!

Posted By Cliff Tuttle | February 24, 2012

No. 814

That’s right.  Don’t send any confidential information by SMS (Short Message System) technology.  It is not secure, and can be read by the network operator and staff.

At most, ask for a phone call or email.  That’s it.

I will not reply to any text relating to a case or other confidential matter.  Even if no apparent harm is done, it may constitute a waiver of privilege.
