Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems.

Struck Wieneke & Love will not use or share the information collected on our site in way unrelated to the purpose for which you provided the information or without providing you a choice whether to permit any such unrelated uses. At the time you provide your information, we will offer you a choice as to whether you want to receive further communications from the firm. If you choose not to receive these communications, we will not use the information you provide for this purpose. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving promotional emails, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as those about our ongoing business relations.
