Should I tell my attorney everything?
There is no question that sharing intimate information with an attorney can be uncomfortable. It’s important to work with someone you can connect with and trust. You should start by expressing your goals and wishes with the attorney. We will help guide the conversation to obtain the necessary information. That said, we will need all material information to your planning needs. Otherwise we simply cannot provide adequate legal representation. Remember that your communications with your attorney are protected by the attorney-client privilege.
