Attorneys, like other professionals who advise on personal financial matters, may now be required by federal law (the "Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act") to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys have always been bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law. We have always protected our clients' right to privacy, and we will continue to do so.
In the course of providing our clients with tax and other advice regarding financial activities, we receive significant personal financial information from our clients. If you are a client of Wallace W. Lien, P.C., you should know that all information we receive from you is held in confidence and is not released to people outside the firm, except as agreed to by you or as required under an applicable law.
We retain records relating to the professional services we provide so that we can better assist you with your professional needs and comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
