PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING:
By submitting this form, you agree that this initial consultation is not the physical step of retaining an attorney. Following your initial consultation, if you agree to hire the Attorney, and the Attorney agrees to represent you, you will both sign a legal engagement letter generated by our firm. The legal engagement letter will set forth all terms and conditions of the attorney-client relationship and will define under what circumstances termination can be ended by the attorney.
If the Attorney is willing to represent you and you decide not to sign a Legal Engagement today, you are strongly urged to schedule a second appointment with the attorney at the earliest possible time or to immediately consult with other legal counsel to protect your rights.
NOTICE: This office does not represent you with regard to the matters set forth by you in this form or those matters discussed with the Attorney in your consultation unless you and the Attorney both execute a written legal engagement letter.
If the attorney does not agree to represent you, including but not limited to not representing you with regard to the matter set forth by you on this intake form or other matters discussed during your consultation, it is important for you to realize that if you are facing a lawsuit, or have the right to bring one, that either must occur within a period of time called the Statute of Limitations. Therefore, the Attorney strongly urges you to immediately consult with another attorney to protect your rights. The Attorney's decision not to represent you should not be taken as an expression regarding the merits of your case.
By submitting this form via this website, you acknowledge that you have received this information and that you understand you have not yet retained an attorney for your legal issue.
