Privacy Policy

Federal law requires attorneys, as well as other providers of personal financial services, to notify their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys are, and have been, subject to more stringent rules of professional conduct and confidentiality than are required by federal law. In recognition of our higher duty to our clients, we have always protected our clients’ rights to privacy.

In the course of providing you advice, we may receive personal financial information. All information that we receive from you is held in confidence and is not released to anyone outside the firm, except as agreed to by you or as required under applicable law.

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you 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 and, thus, with the federal law.
