Dear Clients of the Firm:
Pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Public Law Number 106 –102, and the rule issued by the Federal Trade Commission regarding the Privacy of Consumer Financial Information, 16 Code of Federal Regulations Part 313, law firms which provide tax preparation and tax planning services to their clients are categorized as financial service providers and required to provide written notices to certain clients regarding disclosure of non-public personal information. Non-public personal information means personally identifiable financial information. Personally identifiable financial information includes any information we obtain about you from any source which is not publicly available information. Examples of non-public information include asset and liability information provided to us for purposes of tax, estate and/or business planning.

As your attorneys, we collect non-public information about you from you, and with your authorization, from third parties such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, banking institutions, and other advisors. We do not disclose any non-public personal information about our clients or former clients to anyone except as permitted by law, or as authorized by that client. If we are authorized by you, we may disclose non-public personal information to unrelated third parties. Such unrelated third parties would include accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, or government authorities in connection with any tax returns prepared by us or tax planning. We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those employees of our law firm who need to know the information in order to provide legal services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with Federal Regulations and our rules of ethics to guard your non-public personal information.
