Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Philosophy
- Friedman, Rosenwasser & Goldbaum, P.A. (“FRG”, “We”, or “Us”) has developed web sites located at and and related web pages (collectively, the “Web Sites”) to facilitate your access to information about our firm. This Statement of Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") outlines our privacy procedures applicable to the Web Sites. Privacy policies for information collected from any other source may be different than the policies expressed here. By visiting the Web Sites you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected - Information may be automatically received by us when you visit our Web Sites regardless of any direct communication you may have initiated. Such information includes the name of the domain from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our Web Sites; the geographic location from which you access our Web Sites; and the Internet address (URL) of the web site from which you linked directly to our Web Sites. We may use this information to monitor and analyze the usage of our Web Sites for marketing and other purposes. Also, the information we capture provides us with the ability to enhance our clients' browsing experiences and to determine aggregate information about our user base and usage patterns.

We may also collect information, including personal information, which you, in your discretion, provide to us through e-mail or other entries you make on the Web Sites. You will be prompted to volunteer information under the Contact Us link. Information that you do decide to provide may be used by us to assist in providing information to you or in responding to your inquiries, as well as for our internal purposes and purposes of contacting you. You do not need to enter any information in order to browse the Web Sites.

Use of "Cookies" - When you use our Web Sites, we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a text file known as a “cookie.” Cookies are transferred to your computer's hard drive. The cookie assigns a unique, random number to your computer to enable our log files to record data about the sections or pages you visit on our Web Sites. The information is used to make navigation on the Web Sites easier for the user. These cookies do not contain information that would personally identify you nor do they obtain any information from your computer.

Inquiries and Comments - Under the heading Contact Us, we invite you to submit inquiries and comments. If you would like a response from us, we ask you to provide your preferred contact information, such as name, business name, e-mail address and physical address. If you do not desire a response from us, you may make comments without supplying additional personal information.

USE OF THE WEB SITES DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP - While we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict-of-interest. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any specific matter until you receive, and sign, a written statement from us that we will represent you (an "engagement letter"). The best way for you to initiate possible representation is to call or e-mail one of our attorneys. A conflict-of-interest procedure will then be performed. When you receive and sign an engagement letter from one of our attorneys, you will then be our client, and we may exchange information.

Protecting Your Personal Information - We consider all personally identifiable information you supply us as private and confidential and take reasonable measures to protect it.

The Use of Information - We will only use your information for the purposes you request.

The Web Sites are Not for Children - The Web Sites are not intended for use by children. We ask that children do not submit any personal information to us. If you are under the age of 18, you should only use the Web Sites in conjunction with, and under the supervision of, your parents or guardians.

Third Party Web Sites and Internet Service Providers ("ISP") - If you click on any links and banners which may appear on our Web Sites that take you to third-party web sites (including, for example, sites which are not controlled by FRG, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies. FRG cannot be responsible for the actions of any third-party web sites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement of any other sites you visit.

Access to the internet may be provided to you by an ISP. The ISP may collect information about your usage of our site. In this regard you should check the privacy policy of the ISP that you use.

Notifications of Changes to This Policy - By using the Web Sites and the services available to you on our Web Sites, you consent to our collection and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Any change to this Privacy Policy will be posted to the Web Sites and will take effect as of the posting date. It is your responsibility to check for changes.
