From phone calls and video meetings to texting and smartphone messenger apps, there are more ways than ever before for attorneys to communicate with their clients. Unfortunately, each different platform may have potential privacy pitfalls to trip up attorneys as they prepare their work product. Clients demand instant forms of communication, but questions remain about how these methods will impact confidentiality, rules about commingling, or may raise conflicts the lawyer never considered.
In this program, Joseph Jardine, a criminal defense and personal injury attorney in Utah, will examine the use of texting and similar forms of communication on attorneys' ethical responsibilities.
After receiving his B.A. from Brigham Young University, Joseph Jardine studied at the University of Idaho’s College of Law, graduating with his juris doctor degree and quickly passing bar exams in both Idaho and Utah. With over 100 jury trials on his resume, Joseph possesses the knowledge and experience only gleaned through years spent in the trenches of litigation. He has handled cases from the run of the mill, to cases with national exposure.
Joseph founded the Jardine Law Offices in 2001. His practice has focused on both criminal and civil litigation. He finds that practicing both criminal and PI gives him a unique perspective when it comes to the courtroom. Joseph received the Distinguished Service Award from the Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, he has also been recognized in the following publications: Legal Leaders, Top 40 Under 40 2012, AVVO Top Attorneys 2016-2020.
This was completely new and incredibly useful information. Thank you!

Excellent content. The importance of proper preservation and sequestration of electronic messaging is often not well understood. So, this course serves as a good basic primer. I imagine it will be updated so Mr. Jardine doesn’t run out of material.
Excellent and extremely relevant course.
Very helpful because I was clueless about rule specifics.
I didn't know about text as a more formal option, although I have had clients and counsel use it. Making me a touch uncomfortable. This was a very useful presentation.
