“How do we allow our clients access to their disclosure? After all, it’s their case and they will give us instructions based on the disclosure. We, as lawyers, in looking at disclosure come up with our strategy, what the issues are. Our clients may not agree with it, but our clients have a right to at least know the case against them. It’s very important that we don’t cut them out because too many people forget that the most important person in any prosecution is the client.”
