The Law Offices of Paul H. Nathan

Q:
Is everything I tell a lawyer I meet with confidential, even if I do not hire that attorney?

A:

Yes!

The law clearly mandates that lawyers in California owe you, their clients, a duty to keep your secrets confidential. This is an absolute and broad duty your lawyer must follow.

And, a lawyer's duty of confidentiality is owed to you whether or not you hire that lawyer.
