Obviously, the importance of keeping clients' information secure cannot be understated. It is a requirement of all attorneys, under our rules of ethics, to ensure that information given to us in confidence is secure, and my regular e-mail address provides that more than adequately.

However, some clients understandably have additional concerns about security, particularly in this age of constant surveillance. Therefore, I have created a secure Protonmail e-mail address. Since I do not check it as regularly as my standard e-mail address, my suggestion to clients and potential clients wishing to send me information over Protonmail is that they contact me first and let me know that they wish to do so, and I will then provide the Protonmail address.


Protonmail is one of the securest e-mail clients in existence. It uses end-to-end encryption to ensure that no third parties, including the owners and operators of Protonmail itself, can read other people's e-mails.
