Data Collection About the Law Firm’s Clients
When a person contacts the Law Firm, the Law Firm will typically request certain basic personal information about that person. We retain this information solely for the purpose of doing our legal work in an efficient manner that best serves those who come to us for help and to refer the person to an appropriate lawyer, who may be a member of the firm or outside the firm. We keep this information as long as we deem necessary.
You give us permission to share your webform submissions with any of the lawyers listed here even though some of these lawyers are independent and are outside of our law firm. Such sharing of information is for the sole purposes of finding a suitable lawyer to assist you with your legal issue.
Any information you submit using our online forms is sent to our office and to one of the firm’s lawyers. We take every precaution to protect the privacy of all emails we receive. Due to the nature of the internet, email could theoretically be intercepted by a third party while in transit across the internet.
You may request access to any information we collect about you and we will provide it within a reasonable time. If you would like to view your information then please send us a written request.
We will disclose personal information to third parties and you consent to such disclosure only under the following circumstances:
– to share personal information to and from third parties for the purpose of providing legal services by us or by third parties;
– to comply with a court order served on the Law Firm;
– to assist in the collection of the payment of any overdue accounts of the Law Firm;
– to protect the Law Firm’s websites from being hacked or otherwise misused, and to protect other people’s personal information from being stolen or misused;
– if a lawyer at the Law Firm has reason to believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or of harming someone else unless we inform someone else; and
– if you have otherwise consented that we share your personal information with someone else.
