Facts

I must have all the facts to represent you properly. Tell me everything you know: “My husband took a trip out of town—here is a copy of the ticket.” Tell me what you suspect: “I bet he met his girlfriend down there.” Something that may not seem important to you may be critical to your case. If the other side knows something that I do not, the information could be used against you, and I would be unprepared and unable to defend you against it. However, if you give me the information, no matter how bad it may appear, then I can take the proper steps to prepare a defense to avert what could otherwise turn out to be a disaster.

Anything you tell any member of my office is strictly confidential and will not be disclosed outside without your permission. However, I will not allow you to lie under oath nor allow you to plan to commit a crime. If someone outside of you or my officer overhears or reads communications, the privilege is lost as to those communications.

Do not discuss your case with anyone unless you have my permission. One of the best ways for the opposition to trip you up is to get a statement from you before trial that does not coincide exactly with your testimony at trial. When you do say something, be careful what you say. Anything you say may get played back to you on the stand. If you say something petty or wrong, it may hurt your case. Until the divorce is over, do not say anything you would not want the judge to hear.

Do not sign anything involving this case unless you have approval from me. You may be signing something that could harm you later on.

Furnish me immediately with the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any and all witnesses, and tell me what they know. Advise me immediately if you hear of anything that might affect your case. If I am not in, you may leave this information with my secretary, paralegal, or associate.
