When last we blogged, Eliot Levine and Associates was looking to open an East End Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability intake center. After much discussion with medical professions in the east end and the slowing down of those making the trip east; we have decided to try other venues for client retention. We have viewed Dan’s Papers , the North and South Ferry’s from Shelter Island and are presently exploring additional options. We are still interested in providing legal services to injured workers throughout Suffolk County but, have begun to focus on using our present facility , 1455 veterans’ Highway, Hauppauge, New York 11749 as a jumping off point.
As an update from information recently gleaned from continuing legal education courses: all users of the new communications technology should be wary and be cognizant that your e-mail, social media and cellular communications are not necessarily private and may be subject to subpeona or discovery. What this means in simple terms is that social blogging, transmitting pictures and the like to friends and the general world can and is being reviewed by others from defense counsel to a whole range of individuals and companies. The attorney client relationship no longer necessarily protects information transmitted when the instruments of transmission are not private themselves, , i.e., business servers, family joint password protected accounts, etc. A word to the wise, if there is something you transmit that you might not want revealed to unintended recipients do not transmit it. Just for the moment, consider recent pictures of the royal couples vacation. Privacy is elusive.
As always, this blog is informational and not legal advise. A formal face to face retainer and personal discussion relating to your individual problem within the fields usually handled by such legal counsel is always best and is always subject to the locale, time and facts presented.
