Awad & Awad LLP
Attorneys are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. We do protect your right to privacy and have always been bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law.

We collect non-public information about you that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization and not available from public sources.
Disclosure of Information:
We do not disclose any non-public information about current or former clients obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law. Permitted disclosures include provision of information to our employees, unrelated third parties, and government entities, strictly for the purpose of assisting us in providing services to you, or as required by subpoena, court order, or applicable law. We always stress the confidential nature of information being shared.
Protecting Client Information:
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to safeguard your non-public information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
Safeguarding your personal information when interacting with us via the internet is important to us. Awad & Awad LLP employs standard systems to safeguard your information, including firewall security to protect its networks from unauthorized entry.
