Email Disclaimer
The purpose of our website is to inform our clients and friends about the firm and of recent legal developments in different areas of law. It is not intended nor should it be used as a substitute for specific legal advice or opinions since legal counsel may be given only in response to inquiries regarding particular situations. While we would like to hear from you, an attorney/client relationship cannot be established until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest and until we reach an agreement on terms of representation. Therefore, do not send us confidential information about any matter that may involve you at this time.
