This website does not create an attorney-client relationship.
The best lawyers and law firms exercise care in taking on new clients.
Because the attorney-client relationship is built fundamentally upon an intimate, trusting relationship between a lawyer and a client, good lawyers spend a nontrivial amount of time with potential clients confirming that the potential attorney-client relationship at hand is truly a good fit for both attorney and client. A “good fit” means not only the right matching of skills, background, experience, and billing rate; it also means a good matching of temperament and availability regarding a particular client’s needs at a particular point in time.
Once confidence in a good fit has been confirmed, most good attorneys will commence the engagement with a written engagement letter. Why? Because a good engagement letter practice ensures that potential clients are advised up front about important aspects of the relationship and the services to be delivered (and their cost), and this minimizes potential confusion and misunderstandings down the road.
Our firm commences every attorney-client relationship with a written engagement letter. We believe it’s a good legal practice. We also believe it’s good business.
For the above-referenced reasons and more, the firm emphasizes that this informational website, standing alone, does not form an attorney-client relationship, and it does not constitute the provisioning of legal advice to a client. If you would like to confer with us about hiring the firm so as to obtain legal advice, please call or write so that a consultation can be arranged to determine if we’re the right firm for you.
The only legal advice you should rely upon is the kind you receive in a “live” one-on-one consultation with your attorney.
Smart clients know not only when to hire a lawyer but how to do so.
As indicated elsewhere in the materials appearing in this website, you should never enter into an attorney-client relationship until you have completed certain preliminary steps first (e.g., confirmed that there are no conflicts of interest that would prevent the firm from representing you effectively; determined that the lawyer and his firm is the right one for you in terms of experience, availability, cost, temperament; etc.). And, certainly, you should never engage an attorney or firm purely by email or via a website.
Rather, you should engage an attorney to represent you, and accept his or her advice, only after one or more live one-on-one consultations (e.g., telephone consultations or face-to-face consultations) with the lawyer during which you have confirmed that he or she is the right attorney to service your particular need at this particular time.
