Use of "Cookies"
When you use our Web Sites, we might store some information on your computer.

USE OF THE WEB SITES DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
While we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict-of-interest. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you or your legal matters until you receive, and sign, a written statement from us that we will represent you (an "engagement letter"). The best way for you to initiate possible representation is to call the listed team contact for your area of interest located at www.bgdlegal.com and www.blog.bgdlegal.com. A conflict-of-interest procedure will be performed. When you receive and sign an engagement letter from that lawyer, you will then be our client, and we may exchange information.
Protecting Your Personal Information
We consider all personally identifiable information you supply us as private and confidential and take reasonable measures to protect it.
The Use of Information
We will only use your information for the purposes you request. If you have selected a specific mailing list, that is the only mailing you will receive. Once we have added your name to the list, we will delete your electronic request. If you ask us a question, we will attempt to provide you with an answer and then delete your electronic message to us. We may, and reserve the right to, keep hard copies of any message you send to us.
If you would like us to add or remove you from a list or show, change, or delete your information, please contact us.
