Can my lawyer tell people things that we talk about?

No. Most of the time, your lawyer can’t tell other people (for example your family or friends) anything you tell them unless you say it’s OK. You should ask your lawyer to tell you the rules about what they can and can’t tell other people.

If your lawyer tells somebody something you spoke about and you think they shouldn’t have, you can complain to the Legal Services Commissioner.
