Policy On Law Firm Confidentiality
At Western Wake Law Group (referred to as “we,” “us,” or “our” herein) we respect your privacy. We understand that the matters you bring to us are often highly sensitive. To properly represent you, it is very important that you feel free to fully discuss all aspects of your matter with us. Accordingly, all discussion with us will be held in strictest confidence. Knowing this should help you feel comfortable in providing full disclosure of information.
Attorneys are bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. The rules of professional conduct for attorneys provide that an attorney shall not reveal information relating to representation of a client unless the client consents after consultation. This rule applies not only to all attorneys at Western Wake Law Group but also to our law clerks, paralegals and administrative assistants retained by or associated with an attorney. Everyone who works at Western Wake Law Group has been trained in the requirements of confidentiality.
Western Wake Law Group collects only nonpublic personal information about our clients that is necessary or that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your consent. It is the policy of Western Wake Law Group that any disclosure of information relating to a client or a case to anyone not employed by Western Wake Law Group, without the express authority from the responsible attorney or client, is prohibited, except as required or permitted by law.
All Western Wake Law Group attorneys and staff realize the importance of confidentiality. The relationship between attorney and client is founded on trust and confidence. It is our duty to preserve client confidences.
Confidentiality is a priority in this law firm. In order to protect your nonpublic personal information, Western Wake Law Group has instituted specific physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with the legal professional standards. Western Wake Law Group hopes you will understand that, as a result of these procedures, there are certain questions we may not be able to answer and certain offices you may not be allowed to enter. Western Wake Law Group respects the sensitive and confidential nature of the attorney – client privilege. This is one of many commitments that Western Wake Law Group makes to you as our client.
