About me

Joshua Briones advises clients regarding compliance with state and federal laws, which govern the use and disclosure of consumer information. For example, Mr. Briones advises companies in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and associated FTC regulations, privacy, the cloud, social networks, blogs and user generated content, sponsored links, spamming, phishing, identity theft, and in the defense of data privacy, advertising and other privacy and Internet related class actions.

He is the co-author of the legal Practice guide, Social Media as Evidence: cases, Practice Pointers and Techniques, published by the American Bar Association. Mr. Briones is a member of DLA Piper's Electronic Discovery Readiness and Response group. He is also co-chair of DLA Piper's Social Media practice.
