LITIGATION PUBLIC RELATIONS

CLIENT BACKGROUND

In 2020, Christy Camara lost her 10-year-old son Wyland Gomes in a murder-suicide case. Her ex-husband had circumvented an active restraining order and legally purchased a firearm from a licensed gun store in California. When Christy went to the state Department of Justice (DOJ) to find out how he had passed the background check, she was refused an explanation. Christy has now sued the Department for violating the Public Records Act and for withholding information that will determine the wrongful cause which allowed her ex-husband to access a firearm.

 

TASK & CHALLENGE

To leverage public support and impact the outcome of the lawsuit, I was tasked to secure coverage at a high-profile publication.  

ROLE & CONTRIBUTION

Developed and managed relationship with a reporter to provide publicity support for an active lawsuit against the California Department of Justice, which resulted in a front-page story in the Los Angeles Times
