Resolved Question:

I want to interview several attorneys to see who might be the best to handle a case.
I have to disclose the nature of the case to them and the case might have criminal intent charges against me, which I want to defend against. Are the attorneys I don't use bound to keep what I tell them private since I didn't put them on retainer? I know the attorney that I put on retainer would be...right?

Thank you
