I am a life care planner new to the field. I was retained by a defense attorney to review a case and possibly prepare a life care plan. In an unrelated social situation, I was introduced to the plaintiff attorney on the same case. Conversationally, I mentioned to the attorney that I believed that he and I were on opposing sides of a case. When I reported the conversation to the attorney who retained me, she was furious. What did I do wrong and why? Who is it okay to talk to and who is off limits?
