397.486 Lawyer assistance programs; confidentiality of records, proceedings, and communications.The records, proceedings, and all communications by and between an individual seeking assistance and the lawyer assistance program shall be deemed confidential and shall not be subject to disclosure or available for court subpoena. This section does not prevent the subpoena of business records that are otherwise available through subpoena, nor does this section preclude release or disclosure of information or communications by the lawyer assistance program when such disclosure is mandated or required as a condition or precondition for entry in the program. Such records are not to be construed as privileged merely because they have been maintained by a lawyer assistance program.
