Why do Attorneys Always Say Don’t Talk About Your Case?

In criminal cases the reason should be obvious. Any statement made by a person of interest can be easily twisted around by prosecutors and used against the person. But in a civil case what’s the problem? There are many reasons never to talk about a case.

The case cited above is Gulliver Schools v. Snay, decided by the Third District Court of Appeal in Florida on February 26, 2014. The best thing any client can do is to be safe and never talk about your case to anyone, other than your attorney and your medical providers. Any questions at all should be directed to your attorney. I wish you the best.
