What the Attorney-Client Privilege Really Means to You

On Behalf of | Jun 15, 2011 | Firm News |

Attorney-client privilege is: (1) a communication; (2) made between one and an attorney; (3) in confidence; (4) for the purpose of seeking, obtaining or providing legal assistance.

The basic attorney-client privilege protects client communications with the attorney. The confidential communication covered by this privilege may be written or oral. This also covers the initial consultation a client seeks from a potential attorney. The privilege remains even if further legal assistance is not pursued.

Attorney-client privilege even extends beyond the death of a client and will only be waived under very rare circumstances.
