Unless you have bound them legally to secrecy, using a non-disclosure agreement, they are certainly free to blab about what you have asked them to do... A patent attorney, on the other hand, has a legal and ethical obligation to refrain from disclosing your secrets until you authorize the filing of a patent application or other preliminary disclosures under an NDA (e.g., with searchers or other consultants).

you have a reason to fear hire an atty to handle this keep one thing in mind; a patent must be protected, which means you need money to sue offenders and your product may not sell I suggest to people to hit the market fast and sell like H and then, before the first year ends, file for the patent.
