1st Rule of lawyering – don’t talk about your clients

DON'T TALK

When texted by a reporter asking for a comment, one of Johnny Manziel’s attorneys inadvertently responded with a text message that suggested Manziel’s legal team was seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case. The lawyer also indicated that he had a receipt that showed Manziel may have bought drug paraphernalia in the hours following his involvement in a hit and run car crash. According to the attorney, the text message was meant for another attorney. Well, that attorney has now withdrawn from the case.

It’s never a good idea to talk badly about your clients. It’s even worse to talk badly about your “celebrity” clients. But it’s borderline negligent to send potentially incriminating information electronically without paying attention to whom you are sending the message.
