Speaking proactively to the media, rather than following the media to the lions
Lynn Stewart on organizing news conferences, and more.
Talking to the media about one’s criminal client without a sufficient goal and plan that are solely client-focused is like running through a lion’s den at lunchtime. I have written about this here.
Kudos to radical lawyer Lynne Stewart for talking about speaking to the media to a criminal defense client’s advantage, with a vengeance. No matter one’s view on whether Ms. Stewart should have been prosecuted, convicted, and subsequently disbarred, her above-posted video is a battery charger for me for defending clients with a vengeance, well beyond any media front.
