At the Brink Law firm, we strive to protect your information as much as we reasonably can. As attorneys, maintaining client privacy is essential; our credentials, our reputations, and the success of our business depend on it.
Professional Duties of Privilege and Confidentiality
If you are contacting us for legal representation, most messages you send, calls you make, or voicemails you leave us are protected by the attorney-client privilege and/or our duty of confidentiality. These duties are not merely “best practice” conventions within the legal industry; they are enforceable legal standards that mandate hefty disciplinary penalties for attorneys who disclose certain sensitive client information to outside parties. These protections apply to most solicitations for services, so even if you never actually employ us, we are legally obligated to keep most sensitive information private.
Keeping your Trust
Your trust is extremely important to us. We know that keeping your information safe is essential for providing good service, maintaining our reputations, and growing our business. Therefore, we pledge to keep your information as private as we reasonably can, even when we are not otherwise legally obligated to do so.
We strongly believe that sending out spammy, automated solicitations is an abuse of trust, so will never use your contact information for that purpose, nor will we intentionally provide others with your contact information for that purpose.
Disclosure to Third Parties
We will never sell or trade your personal information. Nor will we ever intentionally disclose any of your personal information to any party that is not a member, contractor, employee, or service provider affiliated with or retained by the Brink Law Firm unless:
- We believe doing so will help solve your legal problem (e.g. if you have a boundary line dispute, we may give your phone number to a reputable local surveyor that we trust); and
- Doing so would not violate our duties of privilege and confidentiality or any other laws; and
- You have not asked us to keep your contact information confidential; or
- Disclosing your information is required by law.
Tracking and Cookies
Like most businesses online, we track user movement across our website using Google Analytics and other software. This process involves transferring certain information to your computer in the form of “cookies,” which enables our site and service providers like Google Analytics to remember certain information about your visit. This information is used to help make the website better, and to make sure the user is as good as it can be. However, if you do not want to provide websites with tracking information, most browsers allow you to disable cookies.
Remember the Risks
The internet is a dangerous place. We try to keep our website and emails safe from hackers, but even the worlds’ more sophisticated technology companies are sometimes subject to breaches. Though we take reasonable measures to keep your information safe, we cannot absolutely guarantee that the information you provide via our website will not be stolen.
The Brink Law Firm is not responsible for the content or conduct of external websites.
