No Legal Advice, Opinion, or Services. The Site and the Content, including without limitation Content regarding legal issues and developments, is provided for general informational purposes only, and is not intended to, and does not, constitute legal advice, legal opinion, or legal services under any circumstances. Because legal advice cannot be given without consideration of all relevant information relating to your particular circumstances, you should never consider any Content a substitute for advice from qualified counsel or a basis for any decision, action, or inaction whatsoever. Further, Lando & Anastasi does not guarantee that any Content is accurate, comprehensive, or up-to-date, and expressly disclaims any warranties with respect to such Content. The Content may not reflect recent developments in the law or apply to your specific jurisdiction or set of facts or circumstances. Your use of any information contained in the Content is entirely at your own risk.
No Attorney-Client Relationship or Privilege. Your access to or use of the Site, any portion thereof, or use of any Services, including but not limited to any Content or email links or other contact information listed for Lando & Anastasi attorneys, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Lando & Anastasi. Your transmission or communication of any information, whatever its nature, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Lando & Anastasi and does not invoke any attorney-client privilege. Lando & Anastasi only enters into attorney-client relationships after undertaking certain procedures unrelated to this Site, in accordance with its own policies and the rules and regulations of the Bar Associations of the states in which it maintains offices. These procedures may include, without limitation, a consultation that is understood and acknowledged by both parties to potentially lead to an attorney-client relationship, the consideration by Lando & Anastasi of potential conflicts of interest and professional responsibility, and the execution of a formal engagement letter between the parties memorializing and outlining the scope of the attorney-client relationship. Further, because an attorney-client relationship will not result from any access or use of the Site or the Services by you or transmission or communication of information to Lando & Anastasi by you, such actions shall not prevent Lando & Anastasi from representing any other party, including without limitation any party with business or legal interests adverse to you.
No Confidentiality. You acknowledge and agree that, unless you are an existing client of Lando & Anastasi, any email, voicemail, telephone call, or other communication from you to Lando & Anastasi or any of its attorneys or other employees, whatever the nature of such communication, shall not be treated as confidential. If you are not already an existing client of Lando & Anastasi, you should not communicate or transmit to us any information of a sensitive, confidential, or proprietary nature, as Lando & Anastasi makes no guarantees or representations regarding the security, use, disclosure, or return of any information or communication received from you, absent an independent, explicit agreement between you and Lando & Anastasi.
No Advertising or Solicitation. The Site, the Content (including attorney information), and any other content or information on the site are intended and provided for general informational purposes only, and are not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as, advertising or solicitation. If you have any questions regarding attorney advertising rules, please contact: FirmGC@LALaw.com
No Guaranteed Outcomes. The Content may contain descriptions of matters in which Lando & Anastasi achieved a successful outcome for its current or former clients. Such descriptions are not intended to, and do not, predict or guarantee future successful outcomes, even in similar circumstances. Further, such descriptions should not imply Lando & Anastasi’s continued or current representation of, or endorsement by, any clients mentioned. Any references in any Content to past awards, designations, or rankings granted to or achieved by Lando & Anastasi should not imply the continued retention or future grant or achievement by Lando & Anastasi of such awards, designations, or rankings.
No Unauthorized Jurisdictions. If the Site, Content or Services are in any way non-compliant or inconsistent with your jurisdiction’s rules or state bar requirements regarding communication of legal services, Lando & Anastasi does not seek to represent you or any other individual or entity in your jurisdiction.
No Admissions or Certifications Unless Specified. While Lando & Anastasi practices law in the jurisdictions in which its offices are located as well as others, each Lando & Anastasi attorney is licensed to practice only in those jurisdictions set forth in that attorney’s biography on the Site. Unless specifically stated in his or her biography, no Lando & Anastasi attorney is certified by any professional or government authority. The listing of Lando & Anastasi attorneys in practice groups is not intended to indicate any professional or governmental certification.
