Warning: Sending an e-mail to us will not make you a client of our firm, will not establish an attorney-client relationship between us, and does not obligate us to respond to you.

You may only become a client of our firm if we first agree to represent you, and you have signed an engagement agreement, and paid any requested retainer. Before we agree to represent any client, we first check for potential conflicts of interest. If you are interested in becoming our client, we invite you to call us and schedule an appointment.

If you are not our client, anything you e-mail to us will not be privileged or confidential, and we are under no obligation to treat your communications as confidential. It is possible that we already represent someone who is adverse to you, and we remain free to represent someone who is adverse to you in the future, even if you ignore this warning and submit information to us which could be significantly harmful to your legal interests.

By proceeding to e-mail us, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this warning and agree to its terms.
