Solving the Kobayashi Marus of the Legal World, one “impossible situation” at a time…
This General and California privacy notice (“Notice”) applies to LegalSolved’s legal activities and the individual solo practices of the attorneys of record with their given license numbers (“LegalSolved,” “the firm,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and is effective as of the date last updated, above.

All defined terms within the California Consumer Privacy Act, including those defined in Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.140, apply for the purposes of interpreting this Notice.
You understand and consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described herein by accessing or using our websites, submitting information to us, or otherwise agreeing to this notice.

Generally, you will know when we collect personal information from you as you will actively provide it to us for a stated purpose, such as filling out a contact form or requesting to be added to some list.
4. PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect your personal information for the business purpose of serving whichever business or legal need you are requesting from us or that we offer. You direct the initial inquiry. However, your request for one service means that we would attempt to provide you service from another division – you submitting your information to us is under that condition, since we operate many businesses with crossover functions, all intended to serve your need.
Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, as required or permitted by law. We consider de-identification and aggregation of personal information to be compatible with the purposes listed above and in your interest, because the anonymization of such information reduces the likelihood of improper disclosure of that information.
