Mr. Kulik and Ms. Kay do not reveal the identity of any client. Click here to learn why – this is very important.
Attorneys owe clients absolute confidentiality. Almost every client suffers adverse effects from being arrested and prosecuted for a crime. Clients want to win their cases, but they also want to minimize the stigma and embarrassment associated with having been charged with a crime.
Mr. Kulik and Ms. Kay believe in scrupulously avoiding drawing attention to either themselves or their clients when handling a criminal matter. Attorneys who “court the limelight” risk causing embarrassment, diminished employment, and many other harmful consequences to their clients.
Our firm believes that clients should be very suspicious of attorneys who promote themselves by appearing in the media as self-declared “experts” or “pundits.” These attorneys may be revealing a willingness to place their personal ego and notoriety ahead of their clients’ interests.
Many times, the TV-media pundit attorneys pay a publicist to obtain this type of exposure. Then, the attorneys pass this cost along to their clients by quoting them excessive, unwarranted fees. This type of media exposure rarely indicates actual professional expertise. It can be very misleading. Attorneys should prefer professionalism over publicity, in our opinion.
Our firm advises clients to exercise great caution when considering hiring any attorney who touts his media exposure. Such behavior should be treated as a warning signal. Clients instead should always demand absolute confidentiality and professionalism.
Our firm has represented other attorneys, medical professionals, judges, politicians, and many other individuals who value their reputations. Generally, these individuals will use their connections in the community to find out which attorneys will both maximize the chances of winning their case and protect their confidentiality. They rarely hire self-promoting media “pundit” attorneys. Please be aware of this when evaluating attorneys on the internet.
