NO PRIVACY/CONFIDENTIALITY: DO NOT send our attorneys any personal information via email or text without first obtaining authorization. All matters are first subject to a conflicts check and we require the names of all persons/entities involved prior to discussing details. If you provide personal or confidential information prior to obtaining a conflicts check clearance, we have no duty to keep that information private and undertake no duty to represent you.
REPRESENTATION REQUIRES A SIGNED AGREEMENT: Sending information to our attorneys or speaking to an attorney in a free consultation does not form a duty of representation. We are retained only after you sign an attorney-client agreement.
CALIFORNIA ONLY: Our attorneys are licensed only in California and all information provided by this website, by email, or by phone is only applicable to matters in the State of California. We do not provide any type of legal advice outside of the State of California.

We primarily practice in the areas listed on this website. We do not provide tax advice. Just like finding the right doctor means you may need a pediatrician, oncologist, or gastroenterologist, finding the right attorney means finding someone that routinely handles the type of matter you need.
NO PRO BONO OR CONTINGENCY CASES: We do not accept representation of clients pro bono (free) or on contingency. All cases are billed on an hourly basis. A retainer is generally required. Retainer funds are maintained in an attorney trust account until earned. If a matter is closed and funds remain in trust, a refund is issued. Matters may require additional retainer deposits.
We reserve the right to change these disclaimers at any time without notice.
