Girard Sharp collects information you enter through our website, such as your name, phone number, email address, reason for contacting us, and answers to questions in our “contact us” forms. If you choose to contact us via web e-mail by completing one of the contact forms on our website or through Girard Sharp social media, your message is automatically forwarded to a Girard Sharp employee. We retain the information you provide us in a database. We do not sell this information.

How to Opt Out of Marketing Communications:

By submitting personal information on our website, you consent to being contacted by Girard Sharp through the contact information you provided for customer service, case-related, investigative, or marketing purposes. If you would prefer not to receive these communications from Girard Sharp, please send an email to contact@girardsharp.com. Upon your request, we will remove your information from our marketing database and may retain your information in a “Do Not Contact” database.

In the event that you receive a call from a Girard Sharp employee and request that we no longer contact you via phone, we will record your request and place you on a “Do Not Call” list that we maintain. See below for our full “Do Not Call” Policy and Procedure.

The electronic marketing communications we send may also contain an opt-out mechanism. Please note that it may take up to 10 calendar days to remove your contact information from our marketing communications lists, so you may receive correspondence from us for a short time after you make your request. Please also contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if you believe that any information that we have collected about you is inaccurate.

Other Opt-Out Options:

  • Cookies. Most browsers let you remove or stop accepting cookies from the websites you visit. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser’s settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all functionality of our website and the site may not work properly. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your browser and how to manage and delete them, visit allaboutcookies.org.
  • Advertising Choices. Some of our advertising partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and are subject to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising published by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). You can obtain more information about these companies’ information collection practices and opt out of receiving interest-based advertising from participating NAI and DAA members at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.aspand/or the DAA’s website at optout.aboutads.info. You can also limit collection of your information for interest-based ads by blocking third party cookies in your browser settings or using privacy plug-ins or ad blocking software that help you block third party cookies. In addition, your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for targeted online advertising purposes. If you opt out of interest-based advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may be less relevant to you. Some of the third party advertising companies we may work with offer their own opt-out options that you can use to limit their use of your information for interest-based advertising. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms or do not participate in the opt-out mechanisms described above. Even after using these opt-out mechanisms, you may receive interest-based advertising from other companies.
  • Declining to Provide Information. We need to collect personal information to provide certain services. If you do not provide the information requested, we may not be able to provide those services.


It is the policy of Girard Sharp LLP (“Firm”) to fully comply with all applicable Do Not Call (“DNC”) laws and regulations regarding wired and wireless telephone communications (whether by live, artificial, or prerecorded voice, telephone facsimile machine, computer or otherwise) to any covered telephone line or number. In a good faith effort to so comply and to provide consumers with an opportunity to exercise their DNC rights, the Firm has established and implemented the following procedures:

(1) No representative of the Firm shall initiate any telephone solicitation, as defined by law, to any residential telephone subscriber before the hour of 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. (local time at the called party’s location).

(2) Girard Sharp LLP abides by the guidelines set out by the Federal Trade Commission as well as applicable state and local guidelines. The Firm does not use any autodialer or make any robocalls. All Do Not Call requests will be honored. Following are the ways that phone numbers can be put on Girard Sharp LLP’s DNC List:

Upon request and within 31 days, phone numbers are removed from the active calling database and put on the Firm’s DNC List.

Exceptions include:

(a) if the Firm has the consumer’s prior express permission, evidenced by a signed written agreement which states that the consumer agrees to the contact by the Firm and includes the telephone number to which the call may be placed;

(b) the Firm representative making the call has a personal relationship with the recipient of the call (a personal relationship means that the person called is personally known to the caller); or

(c) the Firm has an “established business relationship,” as defined by law, sufficient to create a reasonable expectation on the part of the consumer that the Firm will call them. An established business relationship with the Firm may extend to co-counsel or an affiliate of the Firm if the consumer would reasonably expect that entity to be included as part of the relationship (an example would be for customer service or billing concerns).
