Are my conversations with my lawyer confidential?

The attorney/client privilege requires your lawyer to treat everything discussed between you and your lawyer as confidential. However, the privilege may be waived if you choose to discuss confidential information with a third party present or if you send a fax or e-mail message to a fax machine or computer that is not used exclusively by the attorney and the attorney’s staff. Be aware of the pitfalls, as well as the benefits, of technology. Also, beware of holding confidential conversations in settings in which your conversations may be easily overheard.
