Attorneys are bound by professional standards of confidentiality commonly known as the “attorney-client privilege.”
In the course of representing our clients, including with respect to income, estate and gift tax advice and real estate services, we receive significant personal financial information from our clients. All information that we receive from our clients is held in confidence in accordance with the provisions of the attorney-client privilege and ethical rules governing attorney conduct. Such information is not released to people outside the firm, except as agreed to by our clients or as required under an applicable law or legal process.
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist our clients with their professional needs and in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard client nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
