We collect personal information about you only when you voluntarily provide it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use of disclosure of your personal information at the time you retain us. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when we start to use information for a purpose not covered by your initial consent).
Depending on the nature of the services requested, it may also be necessary for us to collect personal information about you from a third party (such as a bank, governmental agency, family member or another lawyer). We obtain your consent to this collection at the time we request it.
