PRIVACY POLICY

 

Attorneys that provide certain types of professional services are required by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act to inform clients of their privacy policies regarding client information. We understand our clients' privacy concerns and strive to protect the privacy of our clients' information. Our clients' privacy is important to us, and maintaining our clients' trust and confidence is a high priority. Attorneys have been (and continue to be) bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Therefore, we have always protected our clients' right to privacy.  The purpose of this notice is to explain our Privacy Policy with regard to personal information about our clients that we obtain and how we keep that information secure.

NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect public and nonpublic personal information about our clients that is provided to us by our clients or obtained by us with our clients' express or implied authorization or consent.

We do not disclose any personal information about current or former clients obtained in the course of representation of such clients, except as authorized (either expressly or implicitly) by such clients to enable us to effectuate the purpose of our representation or as required or permitted by law or applicable provisions of codes of professional responsibility or ethical rules governing our conduct as attorneys.

One of the important responsibilities attorneys have is to file documents in public offices (such as court, register of deeds, and other local, state, and federal offices).  Such documents, most which become public records upon filing, may contain your Personal Information.

 

CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY

 

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist clients and to comply with professional guidelines or requirements of law. In order to safeguard clients' nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
