Marisol Ocampo, Partner Century Law Group LLP
Rizza Gonzales, Associate Century Law Group LLP
State Bar defense experts Marisol Ocampo and Rizza Gonzales brave the social media wilderness with attorneys to shed light on the legal ethics pitfalls emerging in the new era of social media platforms. They touch on the complex web of ethical issues like an attorney friending other legal professionals or posting to “private” social media accounts. The Social Media & Legal Ethics presentation includes a general overview of major social media sites along with statistics pertaining to their usage, how social media posts by attorneys can constitute “communication” and what kind of advertising may be subject to professional responsibility rules. Ms. Ocampo and Ms. Gonzales examine recent examples of attorney disciplinary actions as well as offer guidance on best practices for avoiding trouble with the State Bar.
