By accessing the LLG website, you acknowledge having read and agreed to the following “Terms of Use”.

General

Laffey, Leitner & Goode LLC (“LLG” or “We”) provides information on this website for general informational purposes only and such information should not be construed as legal advice or legal opinion on specific facts or circumstances. The information found on this website is not intended to constitute, and does not in fact constitute, a solicitation for the formation of an attorney-client relationship. Further, the information found on this website is general in nature, and may not apply to particular factual or legal circumstances. You are urged to consult an experienced lawyer concerning your particular factual situation and any specific legal questions that you may have.

Unsolicited e-mails and information sent to LLG by you do not create an attorney-client relationship with LLG, will not be considered confidential, and may be disclosed to others pursuant to our Privacy Policy published on this website. LLG accepts clients only in accordance with designated formal procedures and renders legal advice only after completion of those procedures. No attorney-client relationship attaches as a result of any exchange of information via use of this website.

Lawyers in the firm are licensed to practice in limited jurisdictions, which are identified on the biography page of each attorney who works at LLG. The firm does not seek to represent anyone desiring representation based upon accessing the website in a jurisdiction where the website fails to comply with applicable laws and ethical rules. In addition, our attorneys do not seek to practice law in any jurisdiction in which they are not properly authorized to do so. No LLG attorney will undertake representation of clients in states where he or she is not admitted unless authorized to do so by a court of competent jurisdiction. Due to the national scope of LLG’s practice, LLG attorneys who seek to practice in jurisdictions in which they are not licensed will comply with all local procedures for doing so.
