Rule 19-302.3 Evaluation for Use by Third Parties [MARPC 2.3]

(a) An attorney may provide an evaluation of a matter affecting a client for the use of someone other than the client if the attorney reasonably believes that making the evaluation is compatible with other aspects of the attorney's relationship with the client.

(b) When the attorney knows or reasonably should know that the evaluation is likely to affect the client's interests materially and adversely, the attorney shall not provide the evaluation unless the client gives informed consent.

(c) Except as disclosure is authorized in connection with a report of an evaluation, information relating to the evaluation is otherwise protected by Rule 19-301.6 (1.6).
