Generally, an attorney may not reveal the whereabouts of a former client where such information was received during the course of and in furtherance of the professional relationship. However, the attorney may ethically divulge the whereabouts of the client where the attorney determines that it is the intention of the client to commit a crime in the future, the attorney has obtained the consent of the client to make the disclosure, or the attorney is required by law or a court order to do so. Under the Disciplinary Rules, it is not mandatory that the attorney disclose such information.
