Confidentiality

Protect Your Privacy with
Amazon Attorney CJ Rosenbaum


Unlike non-lawyers, when CJ is working with you, he and his staff are required by law to assure you 100% confidentiality. As a law firm, ASL protects your privacy under the Attorney Client Privilege.

CJ and his staff must keep your information secret by law.

Any non-attorney can do exactly what Amazon does: use your trade secrets and data to help themselves.  It is common knowledge that Amazon tracks your metrics and FBA to identify the products Amazon feels it should start selling directly. Any non-attorney can do the same to you.  Any non-lawyer can use your information for whatever purposes they want.

Unlike CJ, non-attorneys have no rules and no laws governing their behavior. CJ and the ASL team are bound by ethical rules that govern the practice of law.

The American Bar Association describes the attorneys’ obligations of confidentiality in ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.8.

Since Amazon is located in Seattle, many cases by sellers against Amazon can only be brought in Washington State. You may want to review what the Washington State’s RP 1.6.  RP 1.6 is titled “Confidentiality of Information.”

CJ started in New York and has been a District Leader for in the New York State Bar Association for many years.  New York’s rules on confidentiality are located in New York’s law called the Civil Practice Law and Rules at section 4503.  Attorneys in New York refer to the rules as the “CPLR.”  CPLR 4503 states:

“Confidential communication privileged.  Unless the client waives the privilege, an attorney or his or her employee, or any person who obtains without the knowledge of the client evidence of a confidential communication made between the attorney or his or her employee and the client in the course of professional employment, shall not disclose, or be allowed to disclose such communication, nor shall the client be compelled to disclose such communication, in any action, disciplinary trial or hearing, or administrative action, proceeding or hearing conducted by or on behalf of any state, municipal or local governmental agency or by the legislature or any committee or body thereof.  Evidence of any such communication obtained by any such person, and evidence resulting therefrom, shall not be disclosed by any state, municipal or local governmental agency or by the legislature or any committee or body thereof.  The relationship of an attorney and client shall exist between a professional service corporation organized under article fifteen of the business corporation law to practice as an attorney and counselor-at-law and the clients to whom it renders legal services.”
