No information gathered during the evaluation is confidential.


All information gathered is considered attorney work product, and

as such remains protected until the attorney shares it with others.

Exceptions :

    • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
    • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
    • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission (provided to me by law) to ensure their safety.
    • If records are subpoenaed by a Court

If the evaluation is a private pay arrangement, I will notify the attorney prior to reporting concerns.
