The Perlman Law Group has experience with high profile client matters and has been 100% successful in maintaining a media blackout that might otherwise garner negative media attention. When necessary, our firm has worked with various public relations firms to handle media issues.
While we do occasionally appear on television and radio and are quoted in other media, we never discuss our own cases publically without it advancing the needs of the client and never without their consent.
We maintain solid relationships with law enforcement, local prosecutors and judges and we are frequently able to use our reputation to keep our clients out of court (on misdemeanors), and thereby out of the spotlight.
Some local attorneys attempt to parlay their good fortune at retaining a high-profile client into media coverage that acts as an advertisement for their services. Our high profile clients prize discretion and our commitment to never take advantage of any client’s name to our benefit.
In the United States, criminal matters are “matters of public record” for good reason, but that doesn’t mean an attorney need expand and expound on a client’s sensitive, personal situation.
At times, a case will garner significant attention from the media and not commenting at all would be imprudent. When confronted by these types of situations, in an attempt to garner whatever edge we can, we design and weigh specific strategies in advance of making a statement, holding a press conference or sitting for an interview so as to only share information we believe will further our client’s needs.
