Video Series: How Does the Lawyer Client Privilege Help You?

Last week, Victoria Lawyer James Legh of Stevenson Luchies and Legh, explained to us what the lawyer-client privilege is.

This week we get a further glimpse at the solicitor-client privilege, gathering more insights on how to use this gift effectively.

Summary:

It is a lawyer’s job to provide good advice for legal proceedings. For a lawyer to do their job properly, they need to know everything that you know.

If a lawyer has all the information they need, they are then able to provide the best possible advice.

For us to trust our lawyer, we are given the lawyer-client privilege. Even if we choose not to follow the advice of our lawyer, they will never be able to divulge the information provided to them.

Good to know.
