3270 Be Careful What You Type: A Discussion on Professionalism

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Emails and texts have replaced letters and telephone calls as an attorney’s primary means of communication with clients and opposing counsel. While they are convenient, they have a tendency to lead to unprofessional conduct. Attorneys may fire off an email or text without pausing to reflect on what they just typed. This CLE will review the Florida Bar’s position on professionalism as it relates to electronic communications, discuss some cases where attorneys were disciplined for inappropriate electronic communications to clients or opposing counsel, and offer some advice on how attorneys can avoid violating the rules of professional responsibility in their electronic communications.
