I left a yelp review about my lawyer where I critcized his work. He says he might sue me for defamation. But another person says there is this thing called "litigation privilege" which will prevent any of the things I said from being admitted in court. Is this true?
No, litigation privilege is generally about statements made in a courtroom, deposition, or other court proceeding. Yelp reviews wouldnt qualify for this. That being said, if what you stated in your review was either factual and/or just opinion, he would not have much of a claim against you. If things were untrue and went beyond just opinion, you will probably want to talk to an attorney if he takes his claim any further.
