No Attorney-Client Relationship or Legal Advice
Communication of information by, in, to or through this Web site and your receipt or use of it (1) is not provided in the course of and does not create or constitute an attorney-client relationship, (2) is not intended as a solicitation, (3) is not intended to convey or constitute legal advice, and (4) is not a substitute for obtaining legal advice from a qualified attorney. You should not act upon any such information without first seeking qualified professional counsel on your specific matter. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon Web site communications or advertisements.
You also should not rely upon the transmission of an e-mail message to an attorney through this Web site to create an attorney-client relationship. The transmission or exchange of information will not do so. Without an attorney-client relationship in the matter, we cannot assure you that your communications will be privileged or (unless we otherwise agree in a specific case) that we will treat them as such. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information until you speak with one of our attorneys and obtain prior written authorization to send that information to us.
Unless otherwise expressly specified, the attorneys listed in this Web site are not certified by, or certified as specialists or experts by, any professional or governmental agency or authority. Designations of our firm’s practice areas, or of expertise, practice concentrations or specializations of our attorneys are not intended (1) to suggest or represent the contrary, or (2) to suggest any professional or governmental standard by which such experience is measured, or (3) to denigrate other attorneys or firms in any way.
This Web site is not intended as advertising or solicitation in any jurisdiction where the site would be so characterized and fail to comply with all applicable laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction. The Law Office of Christina E. Cortino does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to this Web site or upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules.
