Topic: Secure online PDF forms

My client (an attorney) needs to add some PDF forms to his website for his clients to complete. I envision the forms to be used in the following ways:
1) The user would print the PDF form and fill-in the fields by hand, then mail, fax or walk the completed form into the law office
2) The user would complete the PDF form online and either:
a) print it
b) save it and email as an attachment
c) submit it
I anticipate the most software any user would have is Reader.
Can anyone tell me what I have to to in order to enable saving the filled-in form (doesn't that require a special extension on the server)? AND, more importantly, how can I get the completed form back to the attorney electronically? I am concerned about the security of emailing the completed form as an attachment, and if I understand correctly, "submitting" the form will send it to the server in FDF format which won't resemble the original document, and will require programming to get the results to the intended recipient.
What is the most sensible and safe way to approach this project? I am particularly concerned about data security, especially given the sensitive nature of information that may be exchanged.
