At the Law Offices of Bert W. Cohen, we know that the privacy of your personal information is important to
you. As you know, attorneys are bound to keep client information confidential pursuant to the Attorney-Client Privilege, except
for very limited circumstances. Mr. Cohen and all associated attorneys must pass State and National exams and attend annual
seminars regarding their ethical responsibilities to clients, which include these privacy issues.
A. How we collect
During the initial interview and throughout the representation of our clients, we receive significant
personal information from our clients. The types of non-public personal information that we collect may include:
1. Information that we receive from you (such as name, address, income, assets, social security information, tax returns
and other financial or household information);
2. Information about your relationship and past history with this
firm (such as type of legal services we provide to you, your invoice balances and payment history); and
that we receive, with your authorization, from third parties such as accountants, financial advisers, insurance agents, banking
institutions, doctors, counselors, and others.
We do not disclose any public
or non-public personal information about you to anyone outside our firm except as authorized by you or required by law.
C. Our Safeguards.
Access to your public and non-public personal information is restricted to those who
need to know the information to provide the required professional services. Mr, Xohhwn, associated attorneys, investigators,

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with both federal law and the more stringent professional
standards that attorneys are subject to.
