People are often concerned about whether what they say to their attorney can be later used against them. This is called attorney-client privilege, which is separate from confidentiality. Attorney-client privilege is important because it prevents communications you make with your attorney from being used against you later on. Confidentiality simply means that we cannot share your information with anyone else. For example, emails are a form of communication with your attorney, and they will be subject to client confidentiality and attorney-client privilege. It’s important to note that you should always be careful when sending emails to your attorney, as emails can be unsure form of communication. The same standards are applied work-product as well. Work-product refers to any product that your attorney produces in terms of your case. This may include notes or any form or memorandum. Talk to your Randolph criminal defense attorney if you are unsure about client confidentiality.
