Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 2, 2020

The Law Offices of Andy I. Chen (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the The Law Offices of Andy I. Chen website (the “Service”).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service.

We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible at http://andychenlaw.com

Information Collection And Use

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) may include, but is not limited to:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Social Security Number

We do not sell, trade, barter, or otherwise provide your Personal Information to third-parties. However, in the course of representing our clients, it is sometimes necessary to disclose our clients’ Personal Information to third-parties, such as a court of law in which the client’s case is currently pending. Personal Information is sometimes needed to identify specific individuals in, for instance, court cases. Such disclosure is not our choice.

Log Data

We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

We will not sell, trade, barter, or otherwise provide this Log Data to third-parties. We limit our use of Log Data to activities necessary to represent our clients.


Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

We use “cookies” to collect information. We do not sell, trade, barter, or otherwise provide your cookies or the information contained therein to third-parties.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Depending on your browser, you may also be able to clear or delete your cookies at will. It is possible that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. These links might be to other resources that might help you with your case (e.g. where to get a specific legal document) or as a way of allowing you verify what we are telling you (e.g. a link to a statute or court case relevant to the topic being discussed on our site). We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third-party’s site. We generally have these links open in new browser windows. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit

Children’s Privacy

Our Service is not aimed at anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).

We have, however, occasionally represented Children in legal matters. When we do so, we maintain personally identifiable information (e.g. phone number) for those Children as necessary to allow us to represent those Children effectively.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information not connected to a pending legal matter in which we are involved, please contact us. If we discover that a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information that is not connected to pending legal matter in which we are involved, we will delete such information from our servers and records immediately.

Compliance With Laws

We will disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or subpoena. If we have your current contact information (e.g. email address, phone number, etc), we will contact you to inform you of this pending disclosure. Of course, we cannot control when you receive this contact from us. We encourage everyone to always check their communication channels (e.g. email, voicemails, etc) regularly.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. The date of the policy will be used to differentiate between versions.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.

Contact Us

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us. We recognize that privacy is extremely important and that it is ultimately counter-productive for us to betray your trust by using your personal information in an unauthorized manner.
