Our New Jackson & Wilson Website

Many of you know me only as the “Streaming Lawyer.”

What you may not know is that for the past 32 years, I’ve been one of the Senior Partners of a California litigation and trial lawyer law firm that I started back in 1986 called “Jackson & Wilson, Inc.”

This past weekend we updated our law firm website with the help of Scorpion (full disclosure, I’m a brand ambassador for the company). We happen to think the new site is fantastic and would enjoy your feedback and suggestions. When you have a couple of minutes, please click here to take a look.

Thanks!

 

How To Build Your Brand Using the “You Should Know” Newsletter

This was fun! A big “thank you” for the opportunity to share the Let America Know’s “You Should Know” legal newsletter with my social media legal community.

This service provides consumer attorneys with an easy and effective way to keep consumers and clients updated on what we do and what consumers need to know to stay safe. Hopefully I shared a few new ideas to help lawyers share the newsletter with their audience. Full disclosure, I am a brand ambassador for Let America Know (because I’m such a big fan of the service!)

Legal Issues When Recording Conversations, Live Videos and Podcasts

Can you legally monitor (listen in) or record someone else during a telephone call, podcast or live video show? I share my thoughts, and tips, in the above 2 minute video.

My advice for my fellow livestreamers is to always get the express permission of your guest(s) to record and use the podcast or live video conversation. Sure, you can always argue that it was implied that you had permission to record the private or public interview or conversation but written permission (text or email confirmation) is the best way to document consent, especially in a two-party state.

After watching this video, see if you know the answer to the following question: “You are in California and you interview a guest located in New York on your podcast or live video show. Do the laws of a one-party or two-party state apply?”
