Sometimes you are required to keep secrets and other times you want other people to keep your secrets. Over the next few months, Gordon Law will be examining when and how secrets can be kept. We will further look at what your rights are if your secrets are spilled. This month, we will discuss the Attorney/Client Privilege. In coming months, we will discuss Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and trade secrets.
The Attorney/Client Privilege is one of the oldest, most respected and important privileges. The underlying purpose of the privilege is to ensure that clients receive accurate and competent legal advice by encouraging full disclosure to their attorney without fear that the information will be revealed to others. It is often misunderstood and clients frequently have questions about what that can share with their attorney. Please read HERE to learn more about the Attorney/Client Privilege.
