At Wells, Jaworski & Liebman, LLP, 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. Our Attorneys must pass State and National exams regarding their ethical responsibilities to clients, which include these privacy issues.
