Gramm-Leech-Bliley Privacy Policy

The Firm has Opted-Out for all Clients:

The basis of all client relationships at The Overton Law Firm, P.C. is based on trust. You have chosen to have this Firm represent you in matters that require protection of your confidential and privileged information that you may share with us in the course of representing you. Accordingly, we do not share information about you, unless required or permitted by law.

The Firm Receives and Collects Information:

Federal law requires that we inform our clients of the Firmís policy regarding privacy and confidentiality of "nonpublic personal information." Typically we obtain this type of information in the normal course of providing services to our clients. More specifically, from time to time we receive personal information about you, which includes nonpublic personal financial information. This information may come directly from you on documents that you provide to us or in conferences concerning you, your transactions, and your proposed transactions. Additionally, it may come from third parties, including, for example, lenders, insurance companies, and accountants.

Rules of Professional Conduct are Stricter than the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act:

We are a professional firm of licensed attorneys. With regard to confidential information in providing legal services, we are bound by Rules of Professional Conduct and by a federal law called the "Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act," not to disclose any nonpublic personal information about you to anyone, except as permitted by you or as required by law. The Rules of Professional Conduct are stricter than the federal law, and under these rules, we regard information that you provide to us as private and confidential.

The Firmís Security Procedures:

To protect client information, the firm restricts access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide services to you. We maintain safeguards that comply with federal regulations and with our Rules of Professional Conduct to guard your nonpublic personal information.
