Program & Speakers:

Many attorneys often face the media without any formal training or guidance.  Join us for a two-hour presentation
of how attorneys can help their clients win… not only in a court of law, but also the court of public opinion

 

Topics to be covered:

·         Understanding the media’s behavior

·         Fundamental techniques and best practices for media interactions

·         Reporter’s tricks and question types

·         Key concepts for managing crisis communications

·         Preparing key messages and learning how to highlight them effectively

·         Helping improve the tone of media coverage

·         Examples of media interactions (video segments)

 

Peter Smolowitz, a reporter for 12 years, mostly at The Charlotte Observer, before joining Eric Mower + Associates in 2008.

EMA’s reputation management practice often works with attorneys. Legal considerations always take precedence, but you can help public perception without jeopardizing the case.
