The sole purpose of this site is to provide general information about our firm and to identify some current legal issues that may be of interest to you. The information on this site is not intended as legal advice or as a legal opinion, and it certainly should not and cannot substitute for individual consultation with a qualified attorney. You should not consider, and we do not intend, that any information you find here necessarily applies to your specific situation or that an attorney-client relationship is created by your use of the site or by sending a message to the firm or any of our legal professionals.
While we have carefully attempted to provide accurate information, the law varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and is continually evolving. We cannot make any representation, and cannot assume any liability, for the content, accuracy, timeliness, completeness or other aspects of the information set forth herein. By including a link to another site, Paster, Ray & Cohen intends no endorsement or implied association with any other site, organization or individual.
If you are not a current client of our firm, you should not e-mail us with any confidential information or any information about a specific legal matter, given that we may presently represent persons or companies who have interests that are adverse to you. If you are not a current client and you e-mail our firm, you do so without any expectation of confidentiality. We will not establish a professional relationship with you via e-mail. Instead, you should contact us by telephone so that we can determine whether we are in a position to consult with you about any legal matters before you share any confidential or sensitive information with us.
NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
As your attorneys, incident to representation that we provide, we may collect nonpublic personal information directly from you, from your related transactions, or obtained by us with your authorization or consent, including from third parties such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance companies and agents, banking/financial institutions, and other similar advisors.
NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION WE DISCLOSE
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our current or former clients collected in the course of representation, except as expressly or impliedly authorized by those clients to enable us to effectuate the purpose of our representation or as required or permitted by law or applicable provisions of codes or professional responsibility or ethical rules governing our conduct as attorneys. Only with your authorization or consent, may we disclose nonpublic personal information to unrelated third parties. Such unrelated third parties would include accountants, financial advisors, insurance companies and agents, banks, lenders, or government authorities in connection with our representation of you.
The privilege and confidentiality rules are governed by the rules of the Florida Bar, the rules imposed on attorneys under state law and our ethical standards. In circumstances where applicable laws might allow disclosure, we will continue to follow the stricter non-disclosure rules of attorney-client privilege and client confidentiality applicable to us.
