ACP protects communications made between a client or potential client and a lawyer made in confidence for the purpose of obtaining legal advice. ACP must be asserted in response to a court order and if it is not the privilege is waived. It is also waived if the communication is shared with anyone, or if part of the communication is shared. The one major exception is if the communication was in furtherence of a crime. Each state may have small variations but this is the basic rule.
Attorneys also have a duty of confidentiality where they cant voluntarily disclose any information relating to their representation of their clients. There are a lot of exceptions to this and vary from state to state. Read model rule 1.6 and look for the variation in your state. Common exceptions are to defend the lawyer in a lawsuit, to prevent a crime, to use as evidence in a dispute regarding fees, to comply with a court order, andto prevent death or serious bodily harm.

Christine, you need to go to the state in which your question arises from. In that state go to the court rules that govern the jurisdiction. Usually the court rules will have exceptions right in the rules. If not, statutes from the state will contain what the exceptions may be.Source(s): Former practicing lawyer
