When individuals are going through a divorce or family law matter and are looking for an attorney, many want to bring friends or family members into the initial consultation. The reasoning can make sense on a surface level in that they are looking for moral support and a second option. However, there are risks with bringing others into an initial consultation relating to attorney-client privilege and confidentiality.
