Lisa’s latest article in the New York Law Journal is coauthored with her colleague, Liza J. Trazzera, Esq., and highlights the importance of understanding the ins and outs of attorney-client privilege in divorce.
From the article:
“Divorce attorneys often find themselves in a position where other professionals such as forensic accountants, vocational analysts and computer forensic experts are needed to analyze data, perform business valuations, trace separate property, locate hidden assets, generate lifestyle analysis reports, evaluate a party’s vocational abilities and earning potential. An attorney may also retain consultants to review and critique forensic child custody evaluations.
“… Initially, you should advise your client what are and what are not confidential communications and the significance of the privilege attached to the attorney-client relationship. An essential requirement of the attorney-client privilege is that an attorney-client relationship must be established and the client’s confidential communication to the attorney must be for the purpose of obtaining legal advice or services.”
