How Lawyers Find and Use Social Media Evidence In Divorces and Other Legal Cases

Come to the Meetup and learn how lawyers and others can find valuable information about you from what you post on Facebook and other social media. Also learn how “they” can find other information about you from your “friends' ” social media.

(One of the things they – and you—may be able to do is learn where and when a photograph that you or others put on Facebook was taken.)

“Social media” is a term that gets thrown around a lot. Certainly, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have revolutionized how people relate to one another, creating a public platform exchanging messages and ideas. However, people regularly post status updates, photos and location information without considering the content of the post or who may have access to it. The fact that this content is public has also changed the way family law attorneys (aka divorce lawyers) as well as other attorneys approach gather and present evidence in divaorce and child custody cases and kn other types of litigation Family lawyer Sarah Pfeiffer and technology lawyer Abid Hussain will present the legal issues and technology behind acquiring social media evidence for use in all types of litigation

Sarah Pfeiffer is a zealous advocate and compassionate counselor of the law. Her mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of families and children by providing them with legal counsel, advocacy and education in order to guide them through life’s celebrations and challenges with dignity and balance. She is an attorney with a solo practice in Gretna and New Orleans whose sole focus is on families in crisis.

Abid Hussain is a business lawyer who keeps small businesses and entrepreneurs out of court. He has practiced corporate law for almost seven years in Texas and Louisiana.
