There are several reasons why lawyers need to have a reliable shredding service in place. Here are just a few:
To protect client confidentiality: Client information is always confidential, and it’s essential to keep it safe. A shredding service can help you do that.
To prevent identity theft: Identity theft is a severe problem that can happen to anyone. Shredding your documents can help reduce the risk of identity theft.
To comply with the law: In many states, some laws require businesses to destroy confidential information. A shredding service can help you comply with those laws.
To save money: Shredding documents can save you money on storage costs. It can also help you avoid fines for violating confidentiality laws.
What Documents Should Be Shredded?
Before shredding, the first thing to consider is whether or not the document contains sensitive information. Any documents that include account numbers, social security numbers, and any other personal information that could be used to steal your identity or commit fraud should be destroyed.
Also, review whether or not the document is required by law to be shredded. It includes things like tax documents and other financial records. In many cases, the organization will be necessary to keep these documents for a certain period before you can shred them.

Privacy laws require you have a Written Information Destruction Policy. Develop a plan and educate your employees. Once you decide which document destruction options will work best for you, create a shredding policy. Put it in writing so you can distribute it to your staff, have them read it, and sign a confirmation that they received and understand it.
