CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY ENGINEERED INTO THE BUILDING DESIGN.
A fact few people know about Stewart & Stewart, P.A.'s office at 5435 Main Street, New Port Richey, FL 34652, concerns it's construction. Both exterior and interior walls, including the roof, contain a proprietary combination of materials designed to impede interception of confidential communications. The trade off for achieving enhanced communication security is that cell phones generally do not work well inside our building. There are certain exceptions, but not having the best cell signal is common. The temporary disruption of cell service is worthwhile in further ensuring client confidentiality.
We protect communications with both prospective clients and actual clients. The privilege afforded to attorney client communications belongs to the client, not the attorney. Therefore, only the client may waive it. In federal courts, state law is applied with respect to such privilege. In Florida, the attorney-client privilege is governed by Section 90.502 of the Florida Statuteswhich provides: “A client has a privilege to refuse to disclose, and to prevent any other person from disclosing, the contents of confidential communications when such other person learned of the communications because they were made in the rendition of legal services to the client." In order for the attorney - client privilege to apply, the following four elements must be established: (1) a communication; (2) made between privileged persons; (3) in confidence; and; (4) for the purpose of seeking, obtaining, or providing legal assistance to the client.
