FAQS
 


The attorney-client privilege protects the confidentiality of information given by a client to his or her lawyer. Rule 1.6(a) of the Rules of Professional Conduct provides that “a lawyer shall not reveal confidential information relating to representation of a client unless the client consents after consultation, except for disclosures that are impliedly authorized in order to carry out the representation . . . . “ There are very narrow exceptions to that broad restriction, such as prevention of a crime or fraud.

We emphasize to our staff the importance of preventing even an unintended compromise to the confidences that our clients entrust in us.
