Privacy Policy

We Take Privacy and Confidentiality Very Seriously

As licensed attorneys, our continued existence as a firm and our very licensure is predicated upon adhering to the ethics rules promulgated by the State Bar of Texas. According to these ethics rules, we are required to treat all information that is provided by prospective or existing clients for the purpose of evaluating a legal case as confidential. As such, when you contact our firm, you can feel comfortable knowing that we are hyper-vigilant about protecting your confidential information. However, we are permitted under the ethics rules to breach this confidentiality if:

  • Doing so serves some greater good (such as protecting a person from bodily harm)
  • The information in question is not the type that is required under the ethics rules to be kept confidential, or
  • If there is a practical limit on our ability to keep the information confidential.

For example, if a prospective client emails our firm and threatens to harm another person, we may breach the confidentiality protocol and share that information with the authorities to prevent the harm from occurring. Again, we take confidentiality very seriously, and if you contact us regarding a legal matter, then, for all intents and purposes, the information you provide will be kept strictly confidential, barring some abnormal circumstances that make confidentiality a lesser priority. Such circumstances are highly unlikely to ever occur.

Additionally, if we are contacted by non-prospective clients for reasons other than seeking legal advice, then we bear no obligation to keep any information provided confidential, and you agree to allow us to share publicly any information provided. You also agree to have your identity made known. For instance, if you leave a comment on our blog, merely opining on an article, any information you provide can be shared publicly, such as your name, phone number, email address, etc. If you do not wish to have such information made public, reconsider posting a comment to our blog or contacting us. The overarching purpose of our privacy policy is to protect current, former, and prospective clients by providing them with confidential communications and anonymity. It is not our goal to extend the same protection to people or businesses who contact us through our site for other reasons, particularly those who contact us for marketing purposes or casual conversation.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

There are two types of information that we collect:

  1. We collect personal information that you provide when you fill out a form, email us, or chat with a representative online, and, obviously, you control the nature and content of that information. When this information is related to a legal matter, it's used to evaluate your potential case or answer legal questions that you may ask. Additionally, we may use your contact information to communicate with you in the future for marketing purposes (such as an email newsletter), but such marketing will always be executed per the advertising ethics rules established by the State Bar of Texas.
  2. We also obtain electronic information for all visitors to our website, using programs such as Google Analytics, our chat application, and tools built into our site’s content management system. This information does not typically reveal any personal information, and we primarily use it to monitor our site’s performance. In some cases we may use this electronic information to alter how our site performs or to alter what information is displayed in order to create a custom experience for certain users. For example, our site may be able to tell that your computer has been used to visit our site in the past, in which case we may display a “welcome back” message. This information may also be used for marketing purposes, such as broadcasting an ad to IP addresses that have formerly visited our site.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow it via your browser’s settings) which enables the site or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. This is normal and practically all websites exercise this practice. We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits. In some instances, we may use cookies to provide you with a custom experience to our site or to serve ads to former site visitors.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

Under no circumstances would we ever sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information (the Type 1 info described above). There are circumstances where certain third-party vendors who perform IT services for our firm or who assist in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing our clients, may have access to the information that you provide to us, when they maintain our technical systems, but such parties are bound by confidentiality agreements with our firm so as to disregard entirely any such information. Further, as stated above, we may release your personal information when we believe doing so is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our rights, property, or safety, or the rights, property, or safety of others.

However, electronic information about site visitors (the Type 2 info described above) may be shared with third party marketing providers. Again, this information generally does not contain any information that would make a site visitor personally identifiable. Such information is not shared with the general public under any circumstances.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not willfully or knowingly collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
