Using Your Personal Information

McCloskey Law Office does not sell or share customer information with entities outside of McCloskey Law Office who may want to market to you their own products and services.  You do not need to take any action for this benefit. McCloskey Law Office uses your information to determine if we are capable of serving your needs. McCloskey Law Office may share your personal information with companies that perform services on our behalf, such as our web hosting service providers. McCloskey Law Office is governed by the Rules of Professional Conduct in the states that its attorneys are licensed.  As such, McCloskey Law Office must first perform a conflict check to determine if our firm is prevented from representing you as a result of a current or former client.  Your information will be provided to a McCloskey Law Office attorney in the practice area for which you are seeking information. The McCloskey Law Office attorney will gather any remaining information necessary to perform a complete conflict check.  The information you provide does not create a client-lawyer relationship and no information disclosed to McCloskey Law Office through the website will prohibit the firm from representing a different client in the same matter.  We use the information you provide to perform conflict checks, locate an attorney in the relevant practice area, and provide follow-up correspondences.

If you voluntarily submit information online, we may share information with third parties as required by law.  We may also disclose personal information to protect the rights and property of McCloskey Law Office and its attorneys and staff.
