Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

How can I help you?

or what to do for that matter.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
does answering questions for me fall under lawyer client confidentiality?
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 11 months ago.

No, it does not. JustAnswer customers are not clients and there is no attorney-client relationship or privilege. If you're looking to hire a lawyer, your local bar association may have a referral service for you.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I don't think there is a need for a lawyer. I don't know how to ask this question without sounding incriminating to myself. it is more or less a question relating to circumstances and time. If we talk on the phone does that change anything?
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 11 months ago.

I can send you a request to speak via private email, which would prevent other members of the public from seeing your question. Phone calls and emails through the site still do not create an attorney/client relationship, though. In the unlikely event that an expert was subpoenaed, we'd have to testify.

I see. Well i appreciate the information and i will look elsewhere for my answer! Thank you.
