You have your first meeting scheduled with your attorney.
While waiting for the meeting to start a thought crosses your mind.
Should you tell your attorney about all the important issues?
But another thought crosses your mind, and that is how embarrassing some of the information is in your situation.
It’s embarrassing should I still tell my lawyer?
What do you do?
HOW DOES MY LAWYER DEAL WITH WHAT I TELL THEM
When you speak with your attorney in private, that conversation has to remain confidential.
Not only can the attorney not speak on the matter, the employees in his or her office must also keep the knowledge of the conversations private and confidential.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF I KEEP IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM MY ATTORNEY?
One of the main reasons it is good to be forth coming with your attorney about the information surrounding your situation is that it allows the attorney to come up with ways to deal with the information.
For example, let’s say that you do not share all the important information surrounding your interaction with your doctor in a medical malpractice suit.
Your basis of withholding the information is because not only is the information embarrassing, it may hurt your case,” you think.
Because your attorney does not know about this information, when it comes out, which it more than likely will, your attorney will have no way to help you deal with this information.
SO TO SUM THINGS UP…
Regardless of how you feel about certain information, it is not a good idea to withhold important information from your attorney.
What you may think is something that may wreck your case may not actually be the straw which breaks the camel’s back.
