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.
