Notice. Attorneys who provide legal services involving
financial matters of clients are required by federal law
to inform their clients of their policies regarding the
privacy of client’s information. The purpose of this
Notice is to explain what we do with the financial information
provided to us, and the ways we protect our clients’
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect.
We collect nonpublic personal information about our clients
that is provided to us by our clients or obtained by us
in the course of providing legal services requested by our
clients. This information, in some cases, includes information
about our clients’ personal finances and property.
Disclosure of Information. We disclose
nonpublic personal information about our clients only to
individuals or entities necessary in order to provide our
clients with the legal services they have requested. For
instance, our staff may have access to our clients’
nonpublic, personal information in order for us to efficiently
provide legal services. In some situations we may provide
information to another organization (such as our clients’
accountant, realtor or insurance company) in order to obtain
information or assist us in providing legal services. At
all times, however, we do not disclose, without our clients’
prior permission, nonpublic information that is protected
by the attorney-client privilege and/or the attorney work-product
privilege. Within this context, we do not disclose any nonpublic
personal information about our clients to anyone, except
as necessary to provide our clients with the legal services
that they have requested.
Clients Have The Right to Prohibit Disclosure.
If for any reason our clients do not want us to provide
nonpublic personal information about them to other parties
in the course of providing legal services, they may direct
us not to make those disclosures. If a client wishes to
direct us not to disclose information, we invite that client
to advise us to not to disclose such information.
Our Clients’ Privacy Is Important to Us.
We retain records and files relating to the professional
services our clients ask us to provide. In order to guard
our clients’ nonpublic personal information, we maintain
physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply
with the Code of Professional Responsibility that governs
our profession. If you are a client of the Firm, please
call us with any questions that you have about protecting
