If you are involved in a legal case in Florida, your communication with your attorney is covered under attorney-client privilege, as defined by the Florida Evidence Code. In addition, the Florida Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct further outline attorney-client confidentiality. These two standards overlap in some areas but they are not the same and neither is absolute.

Attorney-Client Privilege

The attorney-client privilege applies when a client (or potential client) divulges information to an attorney for the purpose of legal advice. The intention of this privilege is to permit the client to confidently and honestly share information with his or her legal counsel in order to receive the best legal representation.
