Personal Information We Collect

In general, you can visit our website without revealing any personal data about yourself. We do not collect personal information about you (such as your name and contact details) when you visit this website unless you voluntarily submit the data using one of the forms available for a specified purpose or to contact us through the website.  On these pages we may collect various pieces of your personal information including, for example, your name, address, email address, phone number, facsimile number, company name, company address, title, social security or other identification number, credit card or account information.

We collect information that we receive from you when you meet with us in person or over the phone, when you send us information by mail or e-mail, through our website, and on other documents or forms that we use in providing services for you . Such information may include, for instance, individuals’ name, address, social security number, income, investment and other assets, and other financial attributes.

We receive information from you when your browser interacts with us when you visit our Web site.  A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing non-personally identifiable information about you. We reserve the right to use cookies to collect certain information about you such as IP addresses (i.e., whether you are logged on from a .com, .gov or .edu domain), domain names (the Internet address of a computer) and the type of computer and operating system being used. We may also use cookies to identify your computer when you revisit our website to recall your authentication information or track statistical information related to navigation throughout the website.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not share personal information with anyone without your express consent, except as required or permitted by law. The law permits disclosure in certain instances, such as if we must share information to protect against fraud, in response to a court subpoena or other legal process, and the like.

We may share personal data about our website visitors to nonaffiliated companies that perform support and marketing services on our behalf.  These providers have agreed to use the transferred information solely as necessary to perform the service in accordance with the firm’s instructions and subject to appropriate nondisclosure limitations.

Protecting Personal Information

As a law firm, we take the security of our information systems very seriously and have implemented measures to prevent unauthorized access to data and otherwise protect the integrity of our systems. We will continue to take reasonable steps to ensure the security of any personal data that you provide us online by employing appropriate security measures. Despite the security procedures we employ, you should be aware that it is impossible to guarantee the security of information that you transmit to us via the Internet.

We will, to the extent possible, control your personal information, and, except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose your personal information to third parties. Although we are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information, if required by law, we reserve the right to disclose such information without first obtaining your consent.

How Long Do We Retain Your Information?

We will keep the information that you provide us for as long as is reasonably necessary to achieve the purpose for which you provided it to us, or to the extent necessary for the firm to protect its rights, or as required by applicable laws.

Protecting Former Client Information
