Privacy Policy

blurry boat
The ubiquitous Privacy Policy page: federal law now requires attorneys & other professionals to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys are, and were, bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law. Attorneys as a profession have always protected your right to privacy. Kelly Cook Culbertson, P.A. (hereinafter “KCC PA”) minimizes collection of personal and financial information about you – either from you directly, or with your authorization. KCC PA holds any and all sensitive information in close confidence.  KCC PA releases no sensitive information to any person or entity outside of this law office, except as agreed upon by you, or as required under applicable law.  This privacy policy permits transmission of those protected pieces of information to the probate courts, e.g. partial social security and account numbers, as necessary for entry of court orders.  However, all cases are filed with the “Notice of Confidential Information” form, and probate files are partially non-public. KCC PA retains records relating to professional services rendered only to comply with professional guidelines.   Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the privacy of the information you transmit to KCC PA.

The Insecurity of Email

The Florida Bar Disciplinary Council requires lawyers to notify all recipients of e-mail that:

  1. email communication is not a secure method of communication;
  2. any email that is sent to you or by you may be copied and held by various computers it passes through as it travels from me to you, and vice versa; and
  3. persons not participating in our communications may intercept our communications by improperly accessing your computer, or my computer, or even some computer unconnected to either of us which the e-mail passed through.

If you would prefer to communicate via slack,, Dropbox, or another email alternative, please let me know.

Text Messaging – Also a Privacy Risk

These cautions and weaknesses apply to text messages as well.  Clients may, at their option, send text messages to my office number, and I will reply with the understanding that, by initiating text message contact, the client has considered and is comfortable with the risks.  

No highly sensitive information should be sent via either email or text message – please call me or use a secure communications portal we’ve set up.
