Privacy Policy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy and security of the personal data you provide us when inquiring about the legal services we provide.

When you contact us through our website, by email, in person, or over the phone, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Notice.  This Privacy Notice does not apply to, and Plante & Hanley, P.C. is not responsible for, any third-party websites that may be accessible through links from this website. If you follow a link to any of these third-party websites, they may have their own privacy policies and you will need to check these policies before you submit any personal data to them.  Our website is maintained and monitored by FindLaw, a Thomson Reuters business.  You may find their privacy policy and the data that they might collect here:

While visiting this website, we may collect technical data such as website usage, details of your visits to our website, the device you used to access our website and the referring domain and location.  If you complete our contact form, we may also collect information that you provide, such as your name, phone number, email address and the content of your submission.  If you call us, we may also collect your name and phone number.  Additionally, during our communications with you or in the course of providing services to you, we may collect basic personal details such as your name, telephone numbers, job title, place of employment, home, business and postal addresses and email address.  In some instances, we may obtain personal information such as your Social Security number, driver’s license number, or tax identification number.  We may obtain personal data provided to us by or on behalf of our clients or generated by us in the course of providing legal services, which may, where relevant, include special categories of personal data such as financial information regarding bank or brokerage accounts.

We may use your data to provide legal services to you or to comply with our legal obligations such as performing client due diligence, identifying conflicts of interests, fraud identification or prevention or other relevant background checks.

During our representation of you, and with your consent, we may share your information with third parties such as your accountant, attorney, financial advisor or broker, title companies, appraisers, surveyors, insurance agents or brokers, family members, business associates, expert witnesses or third parties whom you are involved with in transactions, disputes, litigation or to or from whom you wish to provide or obtain services.

We will retain your data for as long as we deem, in our sole and absolute discretion, it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the data was collected and any other permitted linked purpose.  If you enter into an attorney-client relationship with us, our fee agreement will contain the details of our file retention and destruction policy and we will follow that policy.  Our retention periods are also based on our business needs and good practice.

We recognize that information security is important. While we do not guarantee that any data transmission (whether over phone lines, faxes, the Internet, or through any website) will be secure from intrusion, interception, or capture, we retain the services of technical advisors and providers who help us in our attempt to protect data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

Information that you provide to us is stored on our or our service providers’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards that we agreed to or developed with our service providers.

If you have any questions about our use of your data, you should contact the attorney you are working with at our firm.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your data remains accurate.  If there are any changes or inaccuracies in the data you provide us, you must let us know as soon as possible, as the failure to do so may result in our inability to communicate with you and could result in an adverse or prejudicial action being taken against you by a third party.

Certain exemptions to these policies exist to safeguard the public interest, such as the prevention or detection of crime, to safeguard our interests, such as the maintenance of legal privilege.  In addition, some of these rights may be limited where we are required or permitted by law to continue processing your data to defend our legal rights or meet our legal and regulatory obligations.
