Note that you won’t be able to delete Contacts that are engaged on any existing Matter.
Another useful information on this page are the Engagements for a Contact you are looking at. Here, you will see a list of Matters that this contact was a part of, as well as the role he had in them (Client, opposing attorney, judge…).
More info on Contact types can be found  here.
If a lawyer that is browsing through this page is a member of those Matters, there will be a link to open them. However, for those Matters he wasn’t working on, there will be no link (because he doesn’t have permissions to browse them), but he will still know that Matters like that exist. It will be marked who the owners of these Matters are, so he can communicate with them and ask more about those cases if needed.
