How can you have a law firm website without a disclaimer? Lawyers seem to love disclaimers! Here is ours.
No Attorney Client Relationship Without A Retainer:
Nothing on this website is intended to create an attorney-client relationship. To establish an attorney-client relationship, you have to meet with us and discuss the particulars of your case, and you have to sign a retainer agreement in which we agree to formally represent you. We say it often on this site – effective legal advice depends on understanding the unique facts of your case. There is no “one size fits all” in legal matters. You really, really, really should get a consultation with a lawyer if you have any serious legal issue.
General Advice vs Personal Legal Advice
This website is meant to provide general advice and information. We hope you find it useful. We want to provide some good, useful general advice and information to our community. We want to be like the WebMD of Maryland law.
However, nothing on this website can be construed as personal legal advice pertaining to your personal legal situation. To get that, you must get a consultation and discuss the unique facts of your case with a real, live attorney. Just reading the information on this site does not make you a lawyer. Not to sound like a broken record, but effective legal advice depends on understanding the unique facts of your case, and you really, really, really should get a consultation with a lawyer if you have any serious legal issue.
This firm expressly disclaims all liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based on any content on this site. Go see a lawyer for a personal consultation before you take any action, or make any decisions about a legal issue you are facing.
Our offices are located in Maryland, and we ONLY know and handle Maryland cases. Everything on this site is written according to Maryland law. We only follow Maryland’s ethics rules. If you are not in Maryland, I can almost promise you the law in your state is different. Get the advice of a local attorney. Don’t rely on anything on this site if you are outside the state of Maryland.
No Confidentiality in Electronic Communications
Anything you send us by email or other electronic communication is NOT secure and is NOT protected by attorney-client privilege. Do NOT send any sensitive or confidential information over email or by submitting a form on this site, unless and until you have established an attorney-client relationship with us by getting a personal consultation and signing a retainer.
