Client Communications with Opposing Party: First Standard

First Standard: Assume Absolute Transparency

In today's day and age text messages, emails, voicemail recordings, and even recorded phone calls (let’s not also forget body cams) virtually guarantee that everything you say and do relative to what happens to your children, and how you interact with the other party in your court case, is documented.

Since it’s so easy to document words and actions, you have to immediately assume that anything you say and do will be accurately (or worse, inaccurately) presented to a judge as it pertains to some issue that you care about.
