Title: On the SPARC site/Law & Litigation FAQ

On the SPARC site under: SPARC Law & Litigation FAQ

What are the "few exceptions?" refered to in Q&A #12:

12. Do I have the right to copies of records that are held by lawyers that I have released or fired?  

Yes, with few exceptions, you have the right to a copy of everything that is in your legal file. If you are on reasonable terms with the attorney, ask to come by and look through the file for what you need. If not, you may need to send letters requesting the records that you want. Send the request letters by certified mail so you'll have an audit trail, in case there's a problem getting the records.  

The matter is now closed and I am making payments on the legal bill. Is that one of the "exceptions? I sure hope not!
Thank you,
