Confidentiality – Protecting the Client
The Supreme Court of Ohio has stated: “A fundamental principle in the attorney-client relationship is that the attorney shall maintain the confidentiality of any information learned during the attorney-client relationship.” This principle is much more than what appears on paper, as it is the cornerstone of a relationship between an attorney and a client. An attorney client relationship is a relationship built on trust.
The privilege of confidentially gives the client the confidence that the intimate details of their life and claim, will not be shared with anyone else. I have represented the injured victim in our home town and across out great Nation for over 37 years. In that time, I have protected my client’s rights and confidences. From the moment I take on their claim, their problems are my problems. They have my direct dial cell phone and are able to contact me day or night, because the issues they face do not always occur during the 9 to 5 timeframe.
I instruct my team to treat each client as if they were their favorite relative and I have the strictest of rules in place regarding confidentiality. I have top notch technology protecting my data, the client files and information. They place their trust in my hands and I do everything in my power to make sure that it is not misplaced.
If you have been made a victim, call me. I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®
