Abstract:     
Advances in technology have greatly increased the ways a lawyer might interact with clients and potential clients. These advances have multiplied the avenues of communication. For example, lawyers of today can communicate by email with clients or potential clients and also have all the possibilities the internet offers for communicating in writing, pictures or video. Advances in technology also have made it possible for lawyers and potential clients to interact virtually. For example, a lawyer might have a website upon which a potential client might access a questionnaire. The potential client, without the actual knowledge of the attorney responsible for the website, but with the attorney's general knowledge of the website and questionnaire, might respond to the questionnaire by disclosing all sorts of information.
