Professional ethics

I am an attorney. A client posted a negative statement concerning a case that I handled for her. Am I allowed to respond?

The client in question agreed to the proposed settlement after I advised her that she was required under Proposition 213 to carry liability insurance. She did not express dissatisfaction with my services at the time.

Nathan’s Answer

If you are allowed to respond, consider that you do not violate attorney client confidentiality outright. There are reams of internet materials on how to manage this situation probably. The State Bar ethics hotline is also a very good idea as their paralegal research team is exceptional.
