If a PSEA member contacts, by email or other means, a PSEA attorney who has not been assigned to represent that member,
that contact does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Since there is no attorney-client
relationship, any information provided to the attorney may not be treated as confidential and may
be subject to disclosure due to other ethical obligations of the attorney.
The PSEA Legal Services Policy provides eligible members with legal advice and representation on
employment-related legal problems. To apply for legal assistance a member must first contact his or
her UniServ Representative to obtain an application for legal services. The member should not contact
a PSEA attorney directly regarding any legal matter or send the attorney any confidential information
before that attorney is assigned to represent him or her.
