Privacy issues are critical to many of our clients. By using private judges, private trials, and other techniques, many personal and financial matters can be kept private and confidential.
Private Judges and Private Trials
In many situations, a hearing, a trial, or an entire lawsuit may be kept private by using a private judge. In these situations, the parties are not required to appear at a public courthouse. Rather, by using a private judge, the parties legal proceedings can occur at our offices or at another private location.
When appropriate, our firm also uses other techniques to keep our clients personal and financial matters private. These techniques include out-of-court settlements, private agreements, limited filings, out-of-county filings, court orders incorporating private agreements by reference, non-disclosure agreements and court orders, and sealed files.
