Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
So ADA texted me telling me she asked my husband's lawyer if my husband would come in to agree on a deal. When I asked to give me more detail she got annoyed telling me I should just sit back and wait. Its very disappointing giving I just want to resolve the situation and feel like she treats it just as a case... I dont feel she has my and my family best interests in mind. How should I move on?
Ok. Or should I just get in touch with his lawyer? I just want to move on from this. Either by repairing my marriage or moving with divorce, but that will be clear if I can understand where my husband stands. I have a baby and a high profile job and I just want to make sure I can concemtrate on whats important instead of giving them time.
So just to be clear I should contact his lawyer, correct?
Hi, Sorry for the delay. My nephew from out of state is visiting today and I have been out and away from the computer.Anything your husband tells his lawyer is strictly confidential and cannot be used against him no matter what he tells him, as he is protected by the attorney/client privilege.On the other hand, nothing you tell his lawyer is privileged or confidential information. A lawyer will turn what you say to his client's advantage whenever possible. That's all I meant.
