TERMS OF SERVICE/DISCLAIMER

  1. By viewing this web site you agree to abide by, and be bound by, the following:

    This Web Site is Not Legal Advice.
    The material contained on this web site is for general information only and is not legal services or legal advice; nor do the opinions expressed necessarily reflect my opinions.

    Nothing provided through this web site should be used as a substitute for the advice of legal counsel; especially since legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, since facts are unique to each case, laws constantly change, since courts constantly issue new opinions, and since legislation may modify the legal impact of cases and law.

    You agree not to rely on any organization, header, case passage, statute, holding, or other material on this site.

    This site makes no attempt to indicate or evaluate the applicability of the passages, cases, and statutes in this web site. (ie., no opinion is expressed as to what is "good"/"bad"/"old" law, etc.)

    The categorization and passage headers for each passage are solely for organization and should NOT be given any other meaning or weight.

    No Guarantee of Accuracy.
    I have attempted to provide quality information and web links, but I make no claims, promises or guarantees about their accuracy, completeness, applicability, or adequacy.

    No Responsibility for Links to Other Websites.
    I am not responsible for the accuracy and content of the material on third-party web sites linked from this web site. Links to third-party web sites are not intended to state or imply my sponsorship or affiliation with the links or that the views expressed are necessarily my views.

    Communications Are NOT Confidential.
    Please do not send me any confidential information about any current or potential legal case or issue which may concern you. Unsolicited e-mails and information sent to me will NOT be considered confidential and will NOT create an attorney-client relationship between you and me.

    No Attorney-Client Relationship.
    Your viewing of this web site or its information does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and me. The mere receipt of correspondence or email from you to me does not create an attorney-client relationship or create an otherwise confidential relationship. Again, please see the section above titled “Communications Are NOT Confidential.”

    Limitation on Scope.
    Given the global scope of the Internet, this web site is accessible worldwide. However, I do not represent myself as qualified to practice law in any country or state other than those in which I am actually qualified.

    In some jurisdictions, this web site may be considered advertising, solicitation, or publicity.

Furthermore, I do not intend to represent anyone who views this web site in a state where this web site fails to comply with all laws and ethical rules of that state.
