Problems with family members create problems for you. TLAP will consult with you about any issues that you may be experiencing as a result of these problems, and provide assistance on how to best help your loved one.
Under Supreme Court Rule 33 and T.C.A. § 23-4 (101-105), all information furnished to TLAP, shall be governed by the laws pertaining to the attorney client privilege. TLAP respects the confidentiality of who is involved with our office and the information that is provided to us either verbally or in writing. It is only in a case of plan/intent to harm to one’s self or others that TLAP would share information without a signed release in place. Even in such a case, only relevant information would be released.
Most people do, so that we can reach them, and we keep this information to ourselves (as we are legally and ethically required), but if it makes you more comfortable you may remain anonymous.
NO. As previously stated, no one has access to the identity of those seeking TLAP services. TLAP only gives out client information if there is a signed “Consent to Disclosure” form on file giving permission to disclose to a specific individual.
