Content of this Website is Not Legal Advice
The information on this website is provided for general informational purposes only, and not for the purpose of providing legal or tax advice or giving a legal or tax opinion regarding any specific facts or circumstances. The specific advice of legal counsel is recommended before acting (or refraining from acting) on any matter discussed or materials provided on this website.

Using this Website or Sending Us Information Does Not Make You a Client
Sending us information through this website or by e-mail, or your use of this website in any manner, will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Leaffer Law Group, any of its attorneys, or any other attorneys who may have posted to our blog. Until we have agreed to represent you (as indicated by our signed engagement letter), any information or materials you send will not be considered confidential or privileged, and may be disclosed to other parties. Unless and until you become a client of Leaffer Law Group, we reserve the right to represent a party adverse to you, even if the information you sent to us could be used against you in a matter, and even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us.
Accordingly, please do not send us any sensitive or confidential information, or other information relating to a legal matter, without entering into a signed engagement letter with our firm and/or first speaking to one of our attorneys and receiving confirmation that our firm has agreed to represent you. Unsolicited e-mails are not binding on this firm and cannot impose valid deadlines or create any obligations on the part of Leaffer Law Group or our attorneys.
No Tax Reliance
In some jurisdictions this website may be considered advertising. The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon written information about qualifications and experience. We do not desire to represent clients based upon their review of any portions of this website that do not comply with applicable legal or ethical requirements in that client’s jurisdiction. The Content (as defined below) on our website is provided only for informational purposes, and past results do not constitute a guarantee of the same outcome for any similar matter or client.
