Privacy Policy

This policy describes how the law firm of Richard G. Burt (referred to in this policy as the “firm”) collects and uses information about visitors to this website. By using this website, you acknowledge and consent to the practices described below. If you have questions about the firm’s use of your personal information, email the firm at

Information Collected

Visitors can use the firm’s website without disclosing any personally identifiable information.

The firm collects personally identifiable information about visitors only if the visitor chooses to provide it to the firm by submitting an inquiry through the contact form on this website. Any email messages or other transmittals that you send to the firm (outside the contact form) are not governed by this policy, even if you send the message or other transmittal to an address or phone number published on this website.

The privacy policy does not apply to information received from clients of the firm (as opposed to visitors to the website, who do not become clients of the firm by visiting the website), and disclosure of information received from clients of the firm is governed by the Rules of Professional Conduct of the State Bar of California and various statutes.

The firm does not use browser cookies to track user behavior on the website. Although the web server may log certain technical information automatically, such as the identity of a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the visitor’s computer’s IP address, none of this technical information reveals the visitor’s identity to the firm.

Use & Disclosure of Information

The firm does not share any user information gathered on this website with third parties for direct marketing purposes.

The firm is permitted to disclose a visitor’s personally identifiable information if the firm believes is required by law to do so.

Changes to This Policy

This policy is effective February 23, 2017. Any material changes to the policy will be published on this website.

Links to Other Websites

This website may link to websites maintained by outside organizations. These third-party websites are governed by their own privacy policies and not by this policy. The firm is not responsible for the content or policies maintained by those websites.

Visitors Are Not Clients

Do not disclose any private or confidential information to the firm via this website.

The use of the contact form or voice mail (and a reply thereto) does not create an attorney-client relationship. No attorney-client relationship will be formed until Richard Burt has spoken to a prospective client, determined that there is no conflict with an existing client, and the prospective client has agreed to the terms of the representation.

A prospective client should not leave a confidential message by voice mail or send confidential information by email. After an attorney-client relationship has been formed, voice mail and email may be freely used, of course.
