I am in a great class right now about the trial of a high profile case. As an attorney who has represented several clients in headline grabbing cases, I have to agree that honesty is in order. I have never been afraid to speak to the media, but I am always cautious when doing so. Why? Because my job is to represent the client, not to increase my media persona. When searching for an attorney, you may be tempted to choose the flashiest attorney on TV. Remember to chose someone with a good reputation, but who can be circumspect.
