Legal Question in Consumer Law in Washington

An attorney requested that our organization fax him the dates that a certain person was a paid member of our organization. Are we obligated to do so...would it be a breach of confidentiality? (The attorney's client is suing this person for misrepresenting herself by making a false claim of membership.)
