Attorney/Client Communications are Privileged - Most of the Time - Part 4

Posted by attorney Theodore Robinson

Any communication that a client views as privileged must be apparent that it is confidential and told to the attorney in confidence. That conclusion would be negated by the fact that the client told the attorney said information in the company of another party who was not an employee or another attorney. In such a situation, it clearly shows that the client really did not expect the communication to be confidential because he/she told it to the attorney at the same time as he/she told a non-attorney.
