The law firm of Pellettieri, Rabstein & Altman commits to the privacy of every client.
We recognize that our clients entrust important personal information to us, and
we take seriously our responsibility to protect and safeguard this information.
Our long-standing privacy policies and practices are described below.
1. What Type of Nonpublic Personal Information Do We Collect?
The nonpublic personal information that we collect relating to individual clients
will vary with the purpose and scope of our representation. When we advise a client
on personal financial or health matters, the information we collect will include:
- Information that a client has provided to us;
- Information about our client or our client's transactions with others, provided
by others whom our client has requested or authorized us to contact;
- Information about our relationship with, and our services to, our client.
For example, we will typically collect information about our client's personal assets,
income, health, goals and preferences in matters of estate or succession planning,
divorce or guardianship, and personal injury or insurance claims.
When you visit our Website, the only personally identifying information that is
collected and stored about you is that information which you knowingly provide to
us. We collect and store information about you when you ask us to respond to you
with specific information.
2. What Type of Information Might We Disclose, and To Whom?

visitors to our Web site to third parties.
As attorneys, we adhere to our professional duty to keep confidential all nonpublic
personal information relating to a client's representation. We do not disclose any
personal information about any current or former client except as required or permitted
by law or by the New Jersey Code of Professional Conduct.
We may disclose personal information, if necessary to carry out, administer or enforce
a transaction that our client has requested or authorized us to perform; in that
connection, we may make such disclosures to:
- Our employees or agents who are assisting us in serving our client
- At our client's direction or with his or her consent, the client's financial service
and health care providers, or the financial institution that our client has designated
as trustee of a living trust
- Any person whom we jointly represent with our client. For example, if our client
and his spouse have both requested estate planning services from us, we regard our
representation of husband and wife as joint and may share information provided by
one with the other, unless otherwise agreed
- Any other person or entity to whom our client has authorized our making a disclosure,
or to whom law or applicable rules of procedure require disclosure.
