Henry S. Gornbein Selected to Faculty for National Webinar on Electronic Spying & Tracking Spouses in Divorce Cases

Nationally known family law attorney Henry S. Gornbein, of the Lipson Neilson law firm, along with Christina E. Djordjevich, Partner of Walzer Melcher, and David K. Wilkinson, Co-founder Wilkinson & Finkbeiner, have been selected to co-present “Electronic Spying and Tracking Spouses in Divorce Cases: What’s Legal in the Digital World?” during a live 90-minute CLE webinar on June 30, 2021, at 1:00pm EDT. Click here to register.

This CLE webinar will teach family law attorneys to identify and manage legal issues that arise when spouses obtain evidence using electronic or telephonic interception, smartphones, spyware, GPS tracking devices, webcams, wiretaps, or other methods.

An increasingly familiar dilemma for divorce practitioners occurs when a client comes in with potentially significant evidence, a virtual smoking gun. However, if obtained through telephone interception, spyware, GPS trackers, smartphones, webcams, and unauthorized use of social media accounts, how can counsel handle the inherent legal hurdles?

This panel of experts will analyze the current (and ever-evolving) state of legal affairs when spouses spy on one another in a contentious situation. Some of the key issues to be discussed include:

  • How do the federal statutes that govern interception of electronic and telephonic communications impact evidence of spousal misconduct that a client obtains in a divorce case?
  • What factors can guide counsel in determining whether to use the evidence?
  • What are the implications concerning improper self-help surveillance evidence?
  • How should attorneys handle “smoking gun” evidence that may have been illegally obtained?

Henry S. Gornbein is a specialist in all areas of family law. He is a former chair of the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan, a former President of the Michigan Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and a former chair of the Long-Range Planning Committee of the National American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

Sought after as an expert on divorce-related topics by media outlets, Henry is known for being at the forefront of understanding social media and its role in divorces today. He has been featured on webinars discussing the impact of social media on divorce, along with issues including wiretapping, computer hacking, phone tapping, spycams, and others that can arise during divorce and have criminal law violation implications. He is a frequent speaker at national conferences and has been a featured presenter at the National Convention of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

In 2019, Henry created the streaming video podcast series Gracefully Greying®. Aimed at the 50+ age demographic who have aging parents, Gracefully Greying® has attracted an international following and the brand has expanded to include a comprehensive website, social media, educational seminars, e-newsletters, and corporate and community involvement. Topics focus on issues such as elder abuse, the grey divorce, sex, marriage, dating, travel, medical, social, economic, psychological and lifestyle:
