If you communicate with us, whether through telephone, email or other means, your communication and our response is not confidential and does not establish an attorney-client relationship between you and either TBHE or any of the firm’s attorneys. At TBHE, an attorney-client relationship cannot be formed over the telephone, by email or other electronic medium. An attorney-client relationship can only be created by personal contact with an individual TBHE attorney and requires our prior written consent to act as your legal counsel together with your execution of a written engagement agreement with TBHE P.C.
TBHE guards the confidentiality of its clients’ matters and, consistent with our professional obligations, will not divulge information relating to client matters without prior consent or other established exceptions. Please understand that any information sent by any means to TBHE by persons or entities who are not existing clients is not privileged or confidential, will not be treated by us as such, and may not be returned to you and may be destroyed. We are committed to the security of information our clients provide to us and, therefore, employ commercially available security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information we collect from clients through this website. However, security of the internet, in general, and email, in particular, is uncertain at best. TBHE strongly cautions its clients against transmitting unencrypted sensitive or confidential material over the internet. Not only might such transmission result in inadvertent disclosure, but it may also result in loss of the protection typically afforded to communications made as a part of an existing attorney-client relationship. Therefore any such transmission by you is at your own risk, TBHE disclaims any resulting liability or damage – whether or not transmitted by an existing client – and you agree that TBHE shall have no liability therefor. Visits to www.tbhelaw.com are tracked through standard web traffic statistics programs which record site traffic as well as numerical counts of visitors by domain, URL, search engine keywords used, your browser, operating system and Internet service provider information and other standard web measurements. We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze website usage which allows us to improve the design and content of our website. TBHE does not collect your personally identifiable information unless you specifically provide it. For example, if you choose the “Contact Us” button, email us or choose to register for a practice-specific mailing or newsletter, the required contact information, such as your name, email address, telephone number, etc., as well as other information you voluntarily provide, will be retained in a database not located on the Internet. TBHE will not contact you about other matters unless you specifically request that we do so. Requested materials will be emailed to you.
