The goal of The Cockrell Law Firm is to provide through TexasWills.com information and online tools to the public and clients of the Firm.

Information collected from both clients and the public includes:
Server log information: When you visit TecxasWills.com or any other website, you are identifiable by your IP address. Your IP address is automatically collected in server logs. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server and to analyze server traffic to learn which pages on TexasWills.com receive more or fewer visitors. This information is anonymous and cannot be traced back to a specific individual. The server log also can tell us which browser you are using (i.e. Internet Explorer or Firefox), and the name of the website that referred you to our site. (i.e., if you were visiting Google and clicked on a link to TexasWills.com, you were “referred” through that site).
User-supplied information: Current and future services on TexasWills.com, may require that you give us your name, email address, or other personal information. By providing this information, you can and will be able to transact business via the Internet which in the past required telephone or mail contact with the Firm. These online services are provided as a convenience to our clients, and allow the Firm to provide you with efficient and high-quality service at a lower cost.
Access to some services is protected by a password. We recommend that you not divulge your password to anyone.
Certain features of TexasWills.com allow clients to request updates to their information, including their address, telephone numbers, and email addresses. Clients should be aware that certain client information, regardless of whether it is submitted via TexasWills.com, is subject to the Texas Public Information Act. This act requires the Firm to disclose this information upon request. Because of this requirement, this information may be obtained by commercial vendors. Clients can limit the information they provide to the Firm as long as the Firm has at least one address on file so that mandatory compliance materials can be mailed to and reach the client. A client may choose not to provide a home address, phone number, fax number, or email address.
We have security measures in place that are intended to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under our control.
