- Unsolicited communication is not protected by solicitor-client privilege: Privilege is the obligation to keep your information confidential. Privilege arises when a lawyer is retained by your to work for you. Until we agree to represent you, any communication with us is not subject to privilege.
- We may already act for an opposing party: Before accepting confidential mail from a prospective client, we obtain basic information to identify you and anyone else involved in the matter. We do this to determine if we have already spoken to another party. We can only accept a retainer after we determine whether there are any conflicts. Until we accept the retainer, there is no solicitor-client privilege, nor is any information received kept confidential.
- You may disclose important information to an opposing party: If you provide us with confidential or sensitive information and we represent another party, we are required to disclose that information to our client. Information is not confidential when disclosed before you are accepted as a client or in situations where others are likely to receive it.
