Clients frequently ask attorneys if using the Internet for communicating confidential information will compromise any rights. Many lawyers regard Internet e-mail as a replacement for faxing documents and have erroneously advised clients to freely communicate confidential information over the Internet with as much security and confidence as they do via fax.
