Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
You can absolutely share the information with your attorney and ask that it be covered by the attorney/client privilege. Your attorney could get an idea of how to pursue this matter further, including trying to come up with a valid way to present the information that would not get your friend in trouble.
An attorney only has an obligation to break privilege if he/she has information concerning a crime that will be committed or to prevent harm to another individual.
For crimes that have already happened, an attorney does not have to break privilege.
