Attorney-Client Relationship
A client’s relationship with a lawyer isunique. Lawyers and clients must be able to freely for clients to receive the help they need, and the attorney–client privilege and the work-product doctrine make this possible. The attorney–client privilege protects confidential information learned by an attorney during client representation. The work-product doctrine protects the thoughts and materials prepared, and communications made, when lawyers and clients think litigation is possible.This pamphlet explains the basics of both protections, and seeks to teach clients how to avoid common pitfalls.
