Jul 19, 2007 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.
