Choosing an Internet attorney is a serious matter and should not be based solely on data contained on the website or in advertisements and may not be achieved by sending me confidential data unless we have expressly authorized the submission of such data by written authorization.

You may send us email. However, if you communicate with the law firm about a matter for which we do not already represent you, you should not send confidential or sensitive data by email because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential.

If you email us about a matter for which the Internet law firm already represents you, you should note that the security of Internet email is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential email messages that are not encrypted, you accept the risks of such uncertainty and potential absence of confidentiality over the Internet.

If the rules of professional conduct in your jurisdiction require the law firm to name a particular lawyer responsible for the website, I designate myself. Please contact me at the address or phone number listed on the website.

I practice law only in jurisdictions in which I am licensed to do so. I do not seek to represent anyone in any jurisdiction where the website does not comply or is in any way inconsistent with the rules governing communication of legal services in a particular state. I will not represent clients from those states where the materials do not comply with state bar requirements and where the client is generated as a result of that communication.
