Our Client’s Privacy
Attorneys, like other professionals who advise clients on personal financial matters, are required by federal law in some circumstances to inform their clients of their policies regarding the privacy of client information. Attorneys have been, and continue to be, bound by professional standards of confidentiality even more stringent than those required by state or federal law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy and the confidentiality of your information, and will continue to do so.
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect
In the course of your representation we frequently collect nonpublic personal financial information that either you provided to us or that we obtained with your authorization. Examples of such information include tax information, data relating to your financial condition, or your plans for disposing of your estate.
Policy as to Disclosure of Information
For both current and former clients, we do not disclose to anyone other than our own employees any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our representation of you, except with your consent, as required by law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Jeffrey Q. Cardon, PC.
It is possible, for example, that we could be compelled to disclose such information in response to service upon us of a subpoena issued by a court or agency. In any such case, we would timely advise you of our receipt of such legal process and also act in any lawful manner to protect your interests, such as by asserting (if appropriate) claims of attorney-client privilege.
Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients’ Information
In compliance with applicable professional standards and guidelines, we retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to attend to your professional needs. In order to assure the confidentiality of your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that also comply with our professional standards.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy please feel free contact our office at (801) 225-6700. Your privacy, our professional ethics, and our ability to provide you with quality legal services are very important to us.
