The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.


Any unsolicited information you may transmit will not be treated as confidential. Please do not send any information regarding any current or potential legal matter before you have written confirmation of our engagement as your legal counsel. Submitting unsolicited information will not constitute a confidential or privileged communication and we cannot guarantee the non-disclosure of such submission.

We may use the Internet to communicate about our clients’ or potential clients’ representation. Though we make reasonable efforts to prevent such, communications may be intercepted and otherwise used or disclosed by anyone. This could cause a communication to lose confidentiality and attorney/client privilege protections. However, to facilitate representation, we ask our clients and potential clients to agree to and approve the use of Internet communications.

We store digital documents and we do not maintain hard copies. During the course of our representation, a client may have occasion to provide us with documents and other materials. We require that our clients agree to provide us with photocopies unless originals are specifically requested. We will electronically image the documents, and then destroy copies. If we receive originals and the documents are not picked up by the client after digital imaging, the client agrees that the originals may be destroyed. Currently, it is our policy to maintain digital copies for five (5) years before destroying them.

Computer malware, viruses, worms, trojan horses and other types of malicious payload can be transmitted via e-mail or the web. It is incumbent upon the recipient or visitor to maintain safe computing practices, which should include the use of sophisticated software, regularly updated, for the detection of, and defense against, computer malware, viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other types of malicious payload.

The decision to publicly communicate any aspect, fact, decision, result, or judgment related to a matter is entirely within the discretion of a client. Nonetheless, we require that our clients agree that a client will not unilaterally decide to make any public statements without consulting with us, so as to best protect the legal interests of the client. Our clients agree that we may use any testimonials provided by the client about our services as we deem appropriate.
