Our privacy policy doesn’t apply to information provided to us pursuant to our attorney-client relationships or protected by confidentiality, the attorney-client privilege, or any other applicable legal protection.

Please do not use the general contact form on the site for any confidential or privileged communications.

Personally Identifiable Information

Via our website, you may voluntarily submit information that personally identifies you (“Personally Identifiable Information”).

Personally Identifiable Information may include, but is not limited to, your

  • name
  • e-mail address
  • physical address
  • phone number

You can visit our website without telling us who you are or sharing any Personally Identifiable Information.

We only collect Personally Identifiable Information about you if you choose to share it with us. For example, you may subscribe to our blog by providing your email address, or you may submit Personally Identifiable Information in connection with a job application.

You may also decide to provide Personally Identifiable Information by contacting an individual lawyer via an email address provided in a hyperlink on our site.

How do we collect and use information?

We collect information about our users in three ways:

  • directly from the users
  • from our Web server logs
  • through cookies

We use information we collect mainly to deliver the information and services most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information you provide us with others, unless we say so in this Privacy Policy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so.

User-supplied information

If you fill out the contact form on this website, we will ask you to provide some personal information (such as your e-mail address, name, and phone number).

Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; driver’s license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”) via the contact form. If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.

We may use information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future. If you do not want to receive any communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as described below.

Cookies

To provide customized service, our website may use cookies to store and help track information about you and other users. Cookies are small pieces of data sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies to recognize who you are when you return to our site and to help you navigate our site when you visit. Cookies allow us to save passwords and preferences for you so you won’t have to re-enter them each time you visit our site.

The use of cookies is standard. Most browsers are set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to either notify you when you get a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. Please understand that some features of many sites may not function properly if you do not accept cookies.

How is your personal information protected?

We take appropriate steps to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.

Who has access to your information?

We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and we do not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:

  • to agents, website vendors and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us;
  • if we are unable to assist with your legal matter, but know another attorney or firm that might be able to help you, we may refer you and share information you provided us with that other lawyer or firm; and
  • as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another firm or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.

Children’s Privacy

We are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Our site isn’t directed to children under the age of 13, and we don’t knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If we receive Personally Identifiable Information that we discover was provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly destroy such information. Schools and parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider the use of other means to provide a child-friendly, online environment. If you would like to learn more about COPPA, you can visit the Federal Trade Commission home page at http://www.ftc.gov.
