For more than 25 years, Christopher Stender has leveraged his experience as an immigration attorney to help clients with issues related to citizenship and permanent residency. Committed to staying active in his field, Christopher Stender belongs to a number of professional organizations, including the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA).

Last May, the NYSBA updated its list of social media guidelines, which were first implemented in 2014 to help New York lawyers navigate the ethical waters of social media usage. Some of the topics included in the guidelines include advertising, how to appropriately address online reviews (positive and negative), and any conflicts that might arise resulting from postings.

Mark Berman, who serves as chair of the NYSBA’s Commercial and Federal Litigation Section says that these guidelines are intended to help New York lawyers stay in line with previous ethics rulings over the past decade regarding social media. The latest guidelines can be accessed online at http://www.nysba.org/socialmediaguidelines17.
