First, we will discuss the perspective of the client and the duties the attorney owes to the client. Second, we will cover the perspective of a fiduciary, and the special rules that apply. Finally, we will review the importance of preserving the attorney client privilege, and practical tips on doing so in Estate Planning practice in California.
