What is attorney-client privilege, and why should I care about it?
Written and spoken confidential communications between a client and an attorney for the purpose of obtaining legal advice can be “attorney-client privileged” and obtain special protections against disclosure in legal proceedings in court. However, you must be a client of the firm to have this protection with respect to our communications.
