Let me remind you of something I am sure you already know. Just because you have a right to do something that does not mean you should do it.
Lawyers are trained to advise you regarding what you have a right to do. But they receive little, and by little I mean no training in advising you on whether you should exercise your rights.
Lack of training is not the reason you should not be surprised if your lawyers keeps their opinions about what you should do to themselves. The decision to keep quiet about what you should do has little to do with you and everything to do with covering their rear ends.
