Understanding the Firm’s Use of “Personal and Confidential Communication”.
When you receive a letter or other communication from our office that states “THIS IS A CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ATTORNEY AND CLIENT AND MAY NOT BE COPIED OR RELEASED,” it is strongly recommended that you not share that letter with any third party. If another party needs to know some of the information contained in the letter, it is recommended that you send a letter or email to such third party under your signature providing any information, as to share the communication from our office may be a waiver of your attorney-client privilege. In an adversarial situation, another party might be able to get copies of far more than just that one communication, if it is determined that you have waived your attorney-client privilege.
Should you have any questions about sharing our communications with someone else, please contact us at (936)639-0007.
The information, comments, and links posted on the blog do not constitute legal advice. No attorney-client relationship has been formed by the blog communication(s)
