Prohibit unlawful disclosure of the Social Security numbers we collect.

We do not disclose personal information about our clients or former client, except as expressly or impliedly authorized by those clients to enable us to represent the person or as required or permitted by law or applicable provisions of codes of professional responsibility or ethical rules governing our conduct as lawyers.
