LAW FIRMS ARE NOT SAFE FROM DATA BREACHES

By now, consumers know the drill: you receive a letter from an online retailer you used, or a restaurant you’ve been to. Your credit card information or other things were implicated in a data breach. Maybe you’ve thought about contacting an attorney. But is your information secure with a law firm? Sometimes, the answer may surprise you.

Like other businesses, law firms can be subject to data breaches and unauthorized access to client information. When this happens, it can mean that the law firm did not have up-to-date security systems and protocols in place to monitor for this type of behavior. Attorneys carry sensitive client information, and this exposure to unauthorized third-parties could spell disaster for ordinary clients.

Thankfully, you have options. If you have ever used any of the following firms and received a letter about your date being exposed, we want to talk with you:
