If you tell your Maryland attorney everything that happened in your case is what you tell your attorney protected and confidential? This information that you tell your attorney is protected and privileged. This means that the attorney cannot turn around and share what you told him to others.

The reason that Maryland law protects these types of conversations and information is because your attorney can do a better job for you when he or she knows that is going on in your case. In addition, by protecting these conversations, clients are more likely to tell everything they know about their situation and not hold back possibly hurtful information.

Even if you think that the information is hurtful to your case, tell your attorney anyway because your attorney can make plans on how to deal with this information and advise you accordingly.
