Program Summary

There is a big difference between Client Confidentiality and Attorney-Client Privilege. It is not only important to understand what makes a client a client and what protections your client has, but also to communicate that with your client. The reason for this is that it is essential that you receive something of value before a consultation to provide “legal advice”. More importantly, to create the attorney-client relationship. Just because you meet with a client or talk with one on the phone in a free consultation, you have not necessarily created an attorney-client relationship. In this session, we will discuss:

Key topics to be discussed:

  • What protections exist before a prospect becomes a client
  • How to build a process to protect your clients and your firm
  • Why privilege matters in your practice
