The practice of law often requires your attorney to collect very personal information about you. As a provider of personal financial services and advice, we are required by law to inform our clients of our policies regarding privacy of client information. Lawyers have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law for other service providers. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy.
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect
During the course of our representation, we collect nonpublic personal information about you that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization.
Parties to Whom We Disclose Information
For current and former clients, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law. We do disclose information to our employees assisting us with your case, but we maintain a strict confidentiality rule. In some limited situations, with our client's approval, we provide information to unrelated third parties who need to know that information in order to assist us in providing services to you. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared.
Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients' Information is one of our highest priorities.
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs, and in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
Please call if you have any questions, because your privacy, our professional ethics, and the ability to provide you with quality legal services are very important to us.
