The relationship between a solicitor (lawyer) and his/her client has always been subject to “solicitor/client privilege”. This means that anything disclosed to me may not be discussed with any other individual without your express written consent. The “new” privacy legislation is not something new to lawyers. It has been part of the common law history for hundreds of years. I will respect your right to privacy. Accordingly, you should be aware, I will not discuss your file with anyone, unless you have authorized the disclosure in writing. I will not discuss your file with a parent, sibling, common-law spouse, partner or child without your express written consent. Any information about you received in my office is considered “privileged and confidential”.
