Attorney- Client Confidential Relationship

Attorney- Client Confidential Relationship
First, I want to thank our clients for giving me the
opportunity to assist them in their case. I am a legal professional and
I have great pride and confidence in the legal services that I perform
for clients during our relationship as attorney-client. If you have
concerns about your case, please call my office.
We feel that this case is extremely important-not only to
you, but to this office as well. This is not simply a matter of
obtaining just compensation for you, although that is very important; we
take professional pride in guiding our clients carefully through
difficult times to a satisfactory conclusion of their cases.
Confidential information includes, but is not limited to all
information gained in the professional relationship that the client has
requested be held secret or the disclosure of which would be
embarrassing or possibly detrimental to the client. This includes not
only the matter revealed by the client to us, but also the identity of
what clients have been in to interview.
New Jersey Rules of Professional Conduct

RPC 1.6 Confidentiality of Information

(a) A lawyer shall not reveal information relating to
representation of a client unless the client consents after
consultation, except for disclosures that are impliedly authorized in
order to carry out the representation, and except as stated in
paragraphs (b) and (c).
