Whenever I first speak with a client, I give them a little bit of background of myself so that they know who I am and then I always tell them as we start to talk about not necessarily the facts of the case but themselves, I need to know everything. They are two people you never lie to in this world, your doctor and your lawyer. As an attorney, you never want to be blindsided by something in court. I can’t fully protect my client if I don’t know everything. Everything that I speak to about with my client is covered under attorney-client privilege. As long as there is not a third party that’s present that breaks that privilege, I have to hold that privilege sacred. It’s important that the lawyer know everything about the case and about the client in order to properly protect and defend the person because you never know what law enforcement knows or may discover later on, so for me, to know everything about my client is extremely important so that I can accurately and properly defend them.
