Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our site.
The Information We Collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you--such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.-- unless you choose to write the firm or to email us directly.
We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site--such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, or the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, MSN, etc.).
How We Normally Use Information About You
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage, which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.
In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry. We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside this law firm. If you are interested in applying for a job at the firm and choose to submit resume information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside the firm.
However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.
Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
This firm's site contains links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
This office from time to time may post information about programs and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored other firms or organizations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, this firm will have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to this firm's web site will not apply.
Although we do not currently do so, we may use "cookies" in the future to enhance your experience with our Web site. Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. They enable us to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our site. We will not use our cookies to determine any personally identifiable information about you.
Our Commitment to Security
We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
How to Contact Us
We want to hear from you by e-mail, but you must use caution when communicating over the Internet. Your message is not secure and it may not be treated as privileged and confidential. Accordingly, do not send confidential or sensitive information by e-mail.
