The Law Firm does not consider a visitor to this site to be a client. Visitors utilize this website for many reasons, primarily to better understand the law firm.
Although we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when it is required by law. For example, in a divorce case with minor children we use initials whenever we can. We also use ages, whenever we can, rather than birth dates. There are some forms which require actual names and birth dates. Those are primarily, if not exclusively, forms related to the Friend of the Court. That information is kept confidential by the Court
Please be advised that the attorney-client relationship may not protect your communications until you and the law firm have expressly agreed upon legal representation, almost always in the form of a signed Retainer Agreement.
