Attorneys, like other professionals who advise on personal matters, are now required by federal law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys have always been bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this law. Rest assured, at the Law Offices of Mandell Schwartz & Boisclair we have always protected your right to privacy, and we will continue to do so.
As part of providing our clients with legal advice that may bear on their financial affairs, we receive and review significant personal financial information from our clients.

If you are a client of Mandell Schwartz & Boisclair, you should know that all information we receive from you is held in confidence and is not released to anyone outside the firm, except as required by law or with your agreement.
We retain records that relate to the legal services we provide to better assist you with your legal and professional needs as well as to comply with Rhode Island Bar Association professional standards. To safeguard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable professional standards and federal law.
