The Act prohibits the issuance and execution of a search warrant for documents in an attorney's possession absent a showing of probable cause that the attorney committed a crime, or that the attorney has possession of the place to be searched and the documents will be hidden or destroyed. The Act also prohibits warrantless law office searches and provides procedural protections which regulate the search and the disposition of potentially privileged documents.
