This Website provides general information about Our Firm, its people, interests, and generalized information about the law and related, current events.  It is not intended to constitute specific legal advice, and it is not a substitute for advice from qualified counsel.  Our attorneys are licensed in the jurisdictions in which they practice.  If You have a legal dilemma, You should not rely on the information contained herein this Website, which is general in nature and is not intended to apply to particular facts and circumstances, including Your specific circumstances.  Therefore, it is important that You should not use this Website as a source of legal advice.  You are not authorized to rely on the Website for that purpose.
