when a potential client goes to a civil attorney, for a free consultation, to potentially hire the attorney to file a lawsuit on the client's behalf, is the information shared in the consultation covered by the client / attorney privilege, just the same as if the attorney has already been hired by the client ? can the attorney be deposed by the defendants attorney in civil court and made to testify about what information was discussed in the free consultation ? after the consultation the attorney warned me to be careful who I talk to about my case. she said because the opposition can depose anyone that I talk to about my case. I was already acquitted of the criminal charges and told her so. I am worried she may have been threatening to sell me out to the defendants if I do not hire her.
