Hi John, I had a consultation with a lawyer and subsequently signed a contract and made payment. The next day I told a grave lie to break the contract and retrieve my payment. They charged me admin costs and returned the bulk of the payment. The company found out I had lied to break the contract. My question is, are they allowed to disclose this information to anyone namely my employer or another law company. Or are they bound under confidentiality to keep this information confidential.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 9 months ago

This will really depend on the conditions of the contract. Do you have a copy that you can upload and I can review ?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
