Seizure of President’s lawyer’s files sheds light on client protection.
A federal judge will rule on an urgent motion filed by attorney Michael Cohen’s attorneys who have challenged the controversial search of his home, office, and hotel room on Monday.
They claim that the documents and items seized were protected by the attorney-client privilege and cannot be disclosed to the special counsel or anyone else.
Mr. Cohen, of course, is the longtime attorney for President Donald Trump and has been representing him in various lawsuits and legal matters.
Whether you are involved the personal injury cases I specialize in or any other legal proceeding, communications between you and your attorney are usually confidential under the attorney-client privilege.
Since obtaining and serving a search warrant to grab an attorney’s files rarely happens, the startling early morning raid on Monday was alarming to us lawyers and to many others who believe it was overly extreme and unjustified.
