I am not proud of my actions, and need not be reminded I may have committed fraud. All new charges are five months old and total around $15K (on top of existing $15K debt, all cc). My payments are current on all accounts, as I am hoping this will mitigate an AP, and I plan to file next month.
While I recognize the importance of being honest with him, and that's my instinct, I am afraid:
1) He will notify the courts of my actions;
2) He will not accept my case (I chose him, after interviewing six attorneys, because of his honest disposition).
Does it make a difference if
1) I share with him all of this information before any money exchanges hands, or
2) once I pay him, I am covered by attorney-client privilege?
Finally, can he refund my payment after I open up to him?
