Can the other party ask about legal advice or conversations between you and your attorney? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

No, absolutely not. Conversations between you and your lawyer fall under the attorney-client privilege and normally an attorney will answer with an objection asserting the attorney-client privilege if the opposition tries to interogate you in this area. It would be up to the judge in the case to overrule this type of privilege.

There are a number of other special privileges that protect information. Typically, when a party sends a set of interrogatories to our client, we send the pleading on to our client and explain to them that they should answer all of the questions that deal with factual matterslegal issue.
