THIS WEBSITE PROVIDES INFORMATION AS A COURTESY TO YOU
We have provided the information on this website to give you* information concerning our practice and selected legal issues, and to provide general information on subjects that might be of interest to you. This information may be compiled from other sources, and may not be current or accurate. The law and related issues are complex and the applications of laws depend on individual circumstances and often change. We expressly disclaim any warranty of the information provided herein, and expressly disclaim any liability to you based upon any information provided herein or for any other reason.
Our website and our social media sites may contain links to other sites, or to other information. We provide these links for your* education and information only. We are not responsible for the information provided by these linked sites or for your use of these linked sites.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP RESULTS FROM YOUR USE OF OUR WEBSITE OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN IT
Your use of this website and the information contained here does not constitute our firm or any attorney or staff member giving you or anyone else legal advice, nor does it constitute an offer to provide you or anyone else with legal advice. We will only give you legal advice if, and only if, we have established an attorney client relationship with you. That can only be accomplished by you engaging us formally, which requires the execution and delivery of a written attorney client contract.
WE MAY ASSOCIATE WITH OR REFER CERTAIN CASES TO OTHER ATTORNEYS
In certain cases, we may refer your matter to another law firm. In some such cases, the law firm to which we refer your case will be the law firm with which you enter into the attorney client relationship, unless the applicable contract states otherwise. The establishment of an attorney client relationship with a firm to which we have referred your matter does not preclude us from receiving attorneys’ fees from that law firm in accordance with the rules of all applicable state bar rules.
Likewise, in other cases, we may associate with another law firm to serve as local counsel, additional counsel, or lead counsel, all at no additional cost to you. In such cases, you agree to execute additional engagement documents to permit such association, and, again, does not preclude us from receiving attorneys’ fees from that attorney or firm in accordance with the rules of all applicable state bar rules.
YOUR COMMUNICATION WITH US MAY NOT BE CONFIDENTIAL
Communicating with us through our website, through social media sites, by email, or over the internet generally, may not be secure and may not be confidential. While we attempt to maintain the security of communications, we do not guarantee the confidentiality of your information. Similarly, communication via cellular or landline telephone may also be subject to interception, and we do not guarantee the confidentiality of your information if made in that manner, whether by voice communication or text.
From time to time, our site may offer information of a medical nature, particularly as it relates to personal injuries. This information will likely be compiled from other sources. We have compiled this information as a courtesy to you. We are not medical professionals. We do not provide medical diagnoses, advice, or treatment. While we may refer you to a qualified medical professional, or submit your medical and other records for review by a qualified medical professional, for the purpose of evaluating any claim for which we may wish to consider providing legal services to you, such referral or review does not constitute our providing medical diagnoses, advice, or treatment to you, and we disclaim any liability for the services or activities of any such medical professional. If you need a medical diagnosis, advice, or treatment, you must consult with a qualified medical professional.
