Warnings about Emails and Cellular Phones

No one can guarantee the confidentiality or security of email or cellular and cordless telephones. If you choose to communicate with me, or any of my staff via email or cellular and cordless telephones, your communication may be overheard or intercepted. If overheard or intercepted, the communication may lose protection as a privileged communication within the attorney-client privilege.

My office does not employ any encryption methods or protect email communications with passwords. Do not use an analog, cordless, or cellular phone when calling us, if you do not want to risk interception of the call. Analog, cordless, or cellular phones are not secure and can be easily intercepted with readily available inexpensive equipment.

My email policy is as follows:

  1. No one can guarantee the security of email communications. We do not employ any encryption methods. Any use of email is at your own risk.
  2. Do not send and email from any address where you do not want a reply to be sent. We assume that, if we receive an email communication from you, it is safe to send a reply back to that address.
  3. Do not rely upon email for urgent matters. Please use the telephone to transmit urgent messages.
  4. When an attorney working on your case is in court or unavailable, your emails may not be reviewed until the attorney returns to the office. Again, do not rely upon email for urgent matters.
  5. If you become a client, you will be billed for attorney time for reviewing and responding to emails and telephone calls.
  6. Do not email particularly sensitive, confidential, or potentially embarrassing information. There is a risk, however slight, that your email could be intercepted. There is also a risk that your email could be misdirected, inadvertently disseminated, and read by others.
  7. We cannot disclose if you are or are not a client to anyone that calls. We will only discuss your case with a friend or relative if you give us written permission to do so. Be advised that if we disclose any information to a third party that our attorney-client relationship does NOT extend to any third parties.


Asked a question on Avvo and got good information from this lady. She offered that I could call her whenever I wanted. She proceeded to give good advice from the heart. Thank you. more
