Often, no. Communication is vital to a successful relationship with your attorney.
While not every detail about your marriage or situation is always completely relevant to your representation, it’s very important that you feel comfortable disclosing information to your attorney. Also providing more information rather than less can help your attorney with your case.
Experienced attorneys are able to sift through information and help you focus on the matters and details that are relevant and pertinent to your case. Attorneys can help you identify what they need to know, even if you don‘t realize the importance or why they’re important.
