A pre-recorded streaming AUDIO replay of one session from the October 2020 seminar, Firearms in Virginia.

Your client tells you that she has an unregistered machine gun, or that he has a felony conviction and possesses a firearm. What advice may you render to assist the client in coming into compliance with the law and avoid both self-incrimination and obstruction of justice? Issues arise under the Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 1.2(c), under which a lawyer many not counsel criminal conduct but may discuss legal consequences of alternatives, and Rule 1.6 (a), which prohibits disclosure of information protected by the attorney-client privilege.
