File Retention Policy
Nolan Elder Law does not offer users a means by which to delete personal information provided to Nolan Elder Law. The firm keeps electronic records per the Alabama State Bar’s retention policy in force at the time the relationship with the client was ended or concluded. Over time, this period may change but is, in general:
Files relating to minors, probate matters, estate planning, tax, criminal law, business entities and transactional matters should be retained indefinitely and until their contents are substantively and practically obsolete and their retention would serve no useful purpose to the client, the lawyer or the administration of justice.
All other files and materials must be kept for a minimum of six years after termination of the representation, and it further explicitly sets forth that failure to do so is presumptively unreasonable based on the statutes of limitations for the Legal Services Liability Act (§6-6-574, Code of Alabama 1975, as amended).
