"The federal Privacy of Consumer Financial Information rule, found in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, requires us to inform you of our policies regarding privacy of client information. As attorneys, we are bound by rules of professional conduct that have stricter standards of confidentiality than those imposed by that law. We will continue to protect your right to privacy of information provided to us under the stricter professional standards governing the treatment of client information."
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information Collected
When we provide you with estate planning, tax planning, tax preparation, or other services, we collect nonpublic personal financial information from you or from other sources with your approval. The information includes information about your assets, business interests, family situation and tax circumstances.
Non-Disclosure of Information
Unless you authorize us to release information or unless it is required by law, our firm will hold all such information confidential and will not release it to anyone outside the firm. This applies even if you are no longer a client of our firm.

Those records are maintained with procedural, physical and electronic safeguards that comply with the standards required by the California Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys. We are dedicated to protecting your privacy and providing the highest quality legal services to you.
