Attorneys, like other professionals who advise on personal financial matters, are required by a new federal law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys have been, and continue to be, bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy and do not take lightly the confidence you place in us.
In the course of providing our clients with legal advice, we may receive personal financial information about you either from you or with your authorization. If you are a current or former client of Litvak Beasley Wilson & Ball, LLP, you should know that all information that we receive about you is held in extreme confidence. It is not released to any person or entity outside of this law firm, except as agreed upon 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 with your needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your non-public personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.
