Client Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Notice: We value our clients’ privacy and attempt to protect the confidentiality of the personal information clients have given us to the extent practicable.  Under federal law, attorneys, like other professionals who advise clients on personal financial matters, are required to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information.  In addition to the document security measures described above, we are bound by professional standards of confidentiality found in Rule 1.6 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct adopted by the Arkansas Supreme Court, which are even more stringent than those required by federal law.  Non-lawyer assistants we engage to assist us on matters, and who work under our supervision, are likewise bound and as noted above, are required to review, confirm their understanding of, and adhere to our office’s policies regarding ethics, confidentiality and privilege.

In the course of providing our clients legal advice, we may receive significant nonpublic personal financial information from our clients.  All information that we receive from you is held in confidence and is not released to people outside of our supervision, except as agreed to by you, or as required under an applicable law or under the Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your personal needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines.  In order to guard your privacy, we restrict access to nonpublic personal information about only to those who need to know that information to provide services to you or on your behalf.
