Does lawyer/client confidentiality exist when it comes to free or paid consultations? I have a possible legal malpractice suit and I'd like to 'shop' around to some lawyers, but I'm concerned that word could get back to the lawyer I have a potential claim against. (I know it's not professional, but what if the firms are 'friends' or 'looking out for their own'...I wouldn't want to destroy and potential claim before it even got started.) If I can't expect lawyer/client confidentiality, how would I go about searching for a lawyer without jeopardizing a claim? Thanks.
