This web site has been prepared for general information purposes only. The information on this web site is not legal advice and is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney.

The information contained in this web site is not guaranteed to be up to date.

As a result, the information contained on this web site cannot replace the advice of competent legal counsel licensed in your state.

Links to Outside Information.

This web site may contain links to other resources on the Internet to help you find other resources that may be of interest. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any information provided on these linked websites. By including these links, we do not intend to state or imply that we sponsor or are affiliated or associated with the persons or entities who created the web sites or that we are legally authorized to use any trade name, registered trademark, logo, legal or official seal, or copyrighted symbol that may be reflected in the links.

No attorney-client relationship.

Viewing this web site, or sending an e-mail message to any legal services program or any attorney mentioned on this web site does NOT create an attorney-client relationship between you and the legal services program or the attorney. Unless you are already a client of the attorney, your e-mail may NOT be protected by the attorney-client privilege. Also, in some situations, e-mail can be intercepted by persons other than the recipient. Deadlines are extremely important in most legal matters and you may lose important legal rights if you do not hire an attorney immediately to advise you. Many people do not check their e-mail daily, and most attorneys do not respond to unsolicited e-mail from non-clients. If you have a legal problem, you should not rely on email to try to find an attorney to assist you.


Lawyer Advertising.

In some states this web site may be considered lawyer advertising. Any listing of an attorney on this website is not a recommendation of the attorney. Before hiring any attorney, you should investigate the attorney's reputation and qualifications.
