1. BASIC TERMS

By accessing the Site, you acknowledge that you are requesting content and information. The content and information you are requesting is not legal advice, advertising, or solicitation.

Any and all unsolicited information or content sent to us by any entity that is not an existing client of ours is not subject to any duty of confidentiality on the our part. Our receipt of unsolicited information will not prevent the firm from representing another party in the matter.

An attorney-client relationship cannot be formed through this Site under any circumstance, including the submission of forms or sending email to us.
