NCIS: What in the world were they thinking, and why does that matter for lawyers, legal professionals, and anyone else who has to keep information confidential?
Lawyers, paralegals, legal support staff, and other businesses that must maintain the confidentiality of client and other information must be careful not to allow devices such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple's Siri to listen to and record conversations with this type of sensitive information. This podcast focuses on a recent episode of NCIS in which Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines is speaking to and getting information from an Alexa in her criminal investigatory lab.
What Kasie did cannot possibly be appropriate, and probably violates lots of rules and regulations. If a lawyer did that, however, he or she could be subject to discipline for violating the Rules of Professional Conduct. In other words, What were the NCIS writers thinking when they wrote those scenes? Or were they merely doing a product placement?
Listen to Attorney and Technologist Daniel J. Siegel as he discusses the ethical implications of NCIS in the latest episode of The Legal Tech Podcast, sponsored by the Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC and Integrated Technology Services, LLC.
The World Series as an Allegory For Success in the Law, and in Business
When Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker celebrated his team’s victory in game 1 of the 2022 World Series, he did so before the game was over, bragging to the TV announcer how rare it is to joke and laugh during a game. Dusty Baker was convinced his invincible team had won the game. But the last laugh went to the Philadelphia Phillies, who roared back from the 5-0 deficit and won, removing the smile and the happiness from Dusty Baker’s face.
The manager’s shortlived joy is an allegory for life, business, law and how to succeed, topics Havertown attorney Daniel J. Siegel discusses in the latest edition of The Legal Tech Podcast.
