Do I have to pay for my initial meeting with my lawyer?

Lawyers and their staff are under strict rules of confidentiality.  We take this very seriously, and we take special care to make sure that your private matters are kept private.  Interestingly enough, you are free to waive the privilege by telling anyone you want about what we talk about in the lawyer’s office.  This is almost always a bad idea, but it is your right.  But remember, the lawyer and staff all have strict requirements of confidentiality, and we take those obligations very seriously.
