We may collect, aggregate and use PII across our website and law offices.

This information may be used to help analyze website traffic and improve our services.
To make our website work properly, we may place small data files called cookies on your device. Cookies are small text files that a website saves to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They enable the website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time.
