We live in an ever evolving world of technology and security, and since 9/11 the government has obtained unprecedented powers to spy on our phone calls, emails, texts, social media – practically every aspect of our private lives.
Attorney Client Communications
Your communications with your criminal defense lawyer should be private and secure – that’s why Joe Welch uses state of the art encryption to protect your secrets.
You can reach Joe Welch at 314/494-9729 by regular phone calls and text messages, but when security is paramount, it is easy to call and text securely using Signal
Secure Phone calls and texts
Signal is a free and secure messaging app for both Android and iPhone. It’s open source and endorsed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the civil liberties group that helps fight to keep the government out of your digital life. Signal is free and easy to install and use. Not only should you use it to communicate with your lawyer, but urge your friends and family to install and use it, too. What if the government or a hacker intercepted your text messages? What if a friend or loved one gets in trouble and your embarrassing texts to them get exposed for the whole world to see?
Joe Welch also uses PGP to encrypt sensitive email messages. PGP is more difficult to install than Signal, but you can get it up and running in less than 30 minutes if you’re somewhat computer literate.
To get a free and confidential consultation, you must install Signal Private Messenger, a free and safe encrypted messaging application for Android and iPhone. Using Signal you can send encrypted texts to Joe Welch at 314-494-9729. Sending regular texts or emails is not secure. Signal Install Instructions at the Electronic Frontier Foundation
Joe Welch uses a security-focused operating system and multiple layers of encryption on all computers and mobile devices to protect client secrets.
While Joe Welch no longer users the “warrant canary” method of signaling that he has not been the subject of
any search warrants, subpoenas, retention notices, national security
letters or any other legal process that might compromise client
confidentiality or otherwise seek information regarding client
representation, including client identities, rest assured that if something like that ever happened and he wasn’t able to defeat it he would simply shut down his law practice immediately. The safety, security, and privacy of client information is paramount.
