What is the attorney-client privilege?
The attorney-client privilege is an evidentiary principle that may protect from disclosure certain oral or written communications between a lawyer and a client. In order to be protected, the communications must be made within the context of a legal relationship and intended to be confidential. The purpose of the privilege is to encourage open and honest communication between clients and their attorneys in order to provide effective and competent legal advice without fear of unnecessary disclosure.
