Ahem, by the way . . . .

Readers should consult a knowledgeable attorney, licensed in their home State, for advice. These materials may not reflect the most current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. The descriptions of the resolutions of certain matters should in no way be taken as an indication of future results; litigation is inherently unpredictable.

Transmission of the information contained at this blawg web site is not intended to create, and does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. Online readers should not act upon this information without seeking legal counsel. The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements.

In the event the presentation of the information on this web site is inconsistent with the rules governing communications of legal services in a particular State, I'm unwilling to assume the representation of clients from those States where the marketing materials do not comply with State Bar requirements and where the client is originated as a result of that communication.
