Attorneys, like other professionals who advise individuals on personal financial matters, are required by federal law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Law firms have been and continue to be bound by strict professional standards of confidentiality. Sky Unlimited Legal Advisory and its professionals have always protected your right to privacy, and will continue to do so.
Your Social Security information will only be used in the event you hire the firm to represent you in a legal matter, and then only when necessary in limited use during the course of your case. Social Security numbers are most often used to positively identify parties, but may also be used in connection with process service, in court orders, or in cases of emergencies. Some courts even require us to supply the Social Security numbers of all parties.
All information received from a client is confidential. We take every step to protect the privacy of our clients. As such, unless specifically required by law, we do not retain paper copies of documents having clients' social security numbers, banking data, or other confidential information.
We retain records relating to the legal services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to protect any nonpublic personal information we collect from you, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
Paperless Technology & Security
We are a paperless law firm. This helps us to communicate and share documents with you in real time, helps us to manage costs, and (hopefully) benefits the environment. Except where specifically required by law, we will not maintain paper copies of documents for any of your matters. Unless you instruct us otherwise, it is our policy to immediately scan and return to you any original documents that you provide to us during our representation.
We use a variety of technology and third-party cloud-based services for document and law practice management. You consent to our use of these services to store your files, to communicate with you, and to carry out any other tasks necessary to your representation. You acknowledge that when you sign any document(s) electronically, your electronic signature will have the same force and legally binding effect as any analog or "wet" signature.
