No Attorney-Client Relationship or Legal Advice
The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon website communications or advertisements.  Communication of information by, in, to or through this website and your receipt or use of it is not provided in the course of, and does not create, an attorney-client relationship is not intended as a solicitation, is not intended to convey or constitute legal advice, and is not a substitute for obtaining legal advice from a qualified attorney. You should not act upon any such information without first seeking qualified professional counsel on your specific matter.
The transmission of an email message to an attorney through this website will not create an attorney-client relationship. Without an attorney-client relationship, we cannot assure you that your communications will be privileged or (unless we otherwise agree in a specific case) that we will treat them as such. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information until you speak with one of our attorneys and obtain prior written authorization to send that information to us.
