By reading this you are officially on notice and you agree from the beginning of time to the end of the world that you will be bound by that notice (whatever that means).
We’re lawyers. Although we assume that everyone will understand the information on this site is intended to help you learn more about us, and not bind us as attorneys and clients, we see that big firms have fancy disclaimers so we thought we'd create one of our own.
1. The information on this site (and in the blogs and links from the site) is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Frankly, if you think it does, we don’t want to be your law firm. Even if you contact us through the site, email one of our attorneys or post a comment to the blogs, that does not establish an attorney-client relationship either. Don’t you feel better now?
2. Don’t send us any confidential information until we expressly agree we have an attorney-client relationship with you. After all, we might have a conflict of interest or we may simply not be interested in handling your matter. We have standards, you know (remember, we’re different from other lawyers!). So be smart and safe and keep it confidential until we say it’s okay to send stuff to us.
3. The sites we link to via hyperlinks are not under our control. Those sites are responsible for the content of those sites. The sun, the moon and the rotation of the Earth are not under our control either. We’re working on it, but don’t hold your breath, and don’t try to make us responsible for other sites, bad weather, global warming or any malady that befalls you. If you do, we may have to send our rich Nigerian clients who just need your bank account number to contact you.
4. We can relate to people, which means we don’t do tax law. Nothing in the site refers to or mentions tax law. If you have a tax question, you’re in the wrong place. Find a tax lawyer. Preferably one with a personality. Again, don’t hold your breath.
5. The world is an ever-changing place, which means that content can become outdated quickly. While we hope to avoid having outdated material on our site, we can’t guarantee everything is timely, so don’t rely on the timeliness or accuracy of the information on the site. (That sounded lawyerly. Sorry).
6. The stuff on our site is ours or is being used by permission. Don't steal it. But feel free to send it virally around the world and back through an appropriate link so everyone knows our name and sends us lots of cases.
So that's it. We’ve done the lawyerly thing. Aren’t you glad we got that out of the way. Now back to the being the apple-cart upsetters of the legal world.
