Episode Notes

Drawing attention to a client’s plight can be a great outcome for an attorney wanting justice in a case. But what do you do when your client is trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons? In this episode of Asked & Answered, the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward speaks with attorney Pete Wentz, an expert in crisis management and communication strategy.
