AnchorAlameda County Bar Association Statement on Illegal Recording

March 2019

The Alameda County Bar Association strongly believes in the attorney-client privilege, and that our members and their clients must be free to have candid conversations without worry that these communications are subject to illegal recording. The ACBA takes seriously the allegations of illegal recording of attorney-client communications by a member of law enforcement. Any such recording is unacceptable and constitutes an interference with the attorney-client relationship.

The ACBA supports the efforts of our members and others in the criminal justice system who are investigating these allegations and helping to secure the Constitutional rights and access to justice for the clients served by our members.
