Attorney-client privilege in the news.
Recent events in the news have called attention to the meaning of the attorney-client privilege. On April 9, a federal magistrate judge issued a search warrant allowing the FBI to raid offices of attorney Michael Cohen and seize records including attorney-client communications. Mr. Cohen is the personal attorney of President Trump. Questions have since arisen as to whether there has been a violation of the attorney-client privilege in this case. Attorneys on both sides continue to argue about what information seized in the raid will be covered by the privilege and what information, if any, can be disclosed to the court, opposing counsel, and the public.

What is a subpoena?
A subpoena is an action or a document that requires an individual to appear as a witness or to produce evidence to the court.
Subpoenas are issued in both civil and criminal matters. In a civil proceeding, the parties to the case are usually individuals and/or businesses who are engaged in a lawsuit. In criminal cases, the parties are the state and a person or persons charged with committing a crime. The subpoena is issued to someone who is not a party to the case, but who can give valuable testimony in some form.
