ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP COMMUNICATIONS
Although we are happy to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail or facsimile transmission, merely contacting this Firm or any of its attorneys or employees does not create an attorney-client relationship until an agreement has been reached between you and the Firm to handle a particular matter. Because there is no attorney-client relationship, the fact that you are contacting us does not mean that we cannot represent an opposing party in this matter. Please do not convey to us any information you regard as confidential until a formal attorney-client relationship has been established. Any information you convey to this Firm via the Internet or other means may not be secure, and you should not consider information conveyed prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship privileged or confidential.
