Privacy Policy

Your right to privacy under California law includes your telephone conversations. If a company is going to record its phone call with you, you have a right to know and to give consent to the recording. A company that failed to respect your privacy by recording its conversations with you without your consent cannot later use information taken from that phone call against you.

If you think that a phone conversation was recorded without your knowledge in violation of state telephone recording laws, we invite you to contact our California telephone record laws attorneys today for a free and confidential consultation to learn more about your legal options.

Santa Monica Recording Phone Conversation Laws

At the Law Offices of Lisa L. Maki in Santa Monica, you will find a team of lawyers dedicated to fighting for consumer privacy rights granted under California's penal code.

In 14 U.S. states, including California, the consent of both parties is required when recording telephone conversations. Under California telephone recording laws, recording without caller consent can result in a fine of $2500 per instance.

This statute is frequently violated by stock brokers, insurance companies and other service providers. While these companies will notify inbound callers that they are recording the conversation, they often do not inform you that the call is being recording when they return a phone call.

You have a right to consent to your phone conversation being recorded. If a dispute arises and the phone conversation is favorable to the company — they will use it against you. It is only fair that, if your earlier conversation with the company turns a dispute in your favor, you have the same right to use the telephone conversation as proof.
