How We Help Law Firms
Law firms must comply with federal and state regulations dealing with data collection and disposal, and are held to a higher standard when it comes to the protection of client information just because of the nature of what they do and the kind of business they transact.
The most basic principle underlying the lawyer-client relationship is that lawyer-client communications are privileged, or confidential. This means that lawyers cannot reveal a client’s oral or written statements, or statements to clients to anyone, including prosecutors, employers, friends, or family members, without the client’s consent.
Law firms are in possession of all of this information, which is often contained in legal documents like case files, depositions, subpoenas and more.
Lawyers may specialize in a variety of different types of law. The list of specializations is almost endless and is always changing in response to new laws and legal issues. This means a constant collection and keeping of information – information that is ultra-sensitive, which cannot be compromised in any way, shape, or form.
Of course, law firms are not beholden to hold onto case files indefinitely. Once a client’s information has passed the record retention period, Legal Shred can securely handle a large file purge by destroying any and all legal boxes. Legal Shred can also offer same-day and next-day service, as well as routine service without hidden fees or surcharges.
