Congratulations. You have located our fine print.
All access to and use of this website (www.HalloinMurdock.com) is subject to the following Terms and Conditions. Your access to or use of this website constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, do not access or use this website. Of course, if you have located these Terms and Conditions, you probably already have accessed or used other portions of this website. After all, who starts with the footnotes? But if you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, stop accessing and using this website now.
Halloin | Murdock, S.C. (to which, to avoid strangely referring to ourselves in the third person, we will reference with the words “we,” “us,” and “our”) may change these Terms and Conditions at any time without notice.
All materials provided on this website, including all blog postings and links, are for general informational purposes only. They are intended to be a resource for information that might be of interest to our current and potential clients. They are not intended to address specific legal questions or needs, much less to endorse any third-party websites, in any manner.
And, therefore, here come the conspicuous all-caps disclaimers in which, because courts have indicated it is a good idea, we appear to be yelling:
THE MATERIALS PROVIDED ON THIS WEBSITE DO NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE, AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON THEM FOR SUCH ADVICE. Let’s face it, a judge or jury probably will not be very impressed by an argument based on a law firm’s marketing website rather than on the governing facts and law.
THE MATERIALS PROVIDED ON THIS WEBSITE DO NOT CREATE ANY ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP. An attorney-client relationship between you and us will arise only if a separate written representation agreement defining the terms and conditions of that relationship is entered and executed by you and us. Unless and until you and we enter and execute such an agreement, you should not provide us with any confidential information.
THIS WEBSITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR GUARANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. Although we have made reasonable efforts to ensure that all materials provided on this website are accurate, we do not represent, warrant, or guarantee that any materials provided on this website or on any linked website are accurate, current, or complete; are free from viruses, errors, defects, or harmful components; will be available, be it with or without interruption; or will be fit for any particular purpose.
WE DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF ANY UNSOLICITED COMMUNICATIONS OR MATERIALS. Again, unless and until you and we enter and execute a separate written representation agreement (in other words, unless and until we develop an attorney-client relationship and, accordingly, an attorney-client privilege), you should not provide us with any confidential information.
WE DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF ANY COMMUNICATIONS OR MATERIALS SENT VIA ANY ELECTRONIC MEANS. Such means include this website—and emails and texts and tweets and, well, any electronic means.
In short, if you have any legal questions or needs, please call one of our lawyers, who will be happy to discuss whether we can assist you. Do not rely on our website to assist you with such questions or needs.
No reference in this website to any past result should be construed as a representation or prediction regarding, or a warranty or guaranty of, a future result. Facts differ. Laws change. But that said, if we agree to represent you, it means we believe we can help you.
All copyright and other intellectual property rights in this website, including all materials provided on this website, are owned by or licensed to Halloin | Murdock, S.C. No portion of this website may be downloaded, reproduced, stored, transmitted, or distributed in any manner or for any purpose other than for personal, non-commercial, non-legal use without the express written consent of Halloin | Murdock, S.C. For example, no portion of this website may be downloaded, reproduced, stored, transmitted, or distributed in any manner or for any purpose adverse to our clients in any court proceeding, administrative proceeding, arbitration, or mediation. If you violate this term, you, by virtue of your agreement to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, hereby agree to a voluntary dismissal of any claims or defenses you may have against our clients. (See what we did there?)
We welcome your feedback. If you find any typographical or grammatical error in this website, please contact Attorney Andrea L. Murdock, who likely will argue whether the subject language in fact accords with some obscure spelling or rule. If you have any other questions or comments about this website, please contact Ms. Kimberly M. Finnigan, who likely will be less argumentative.
Congratulations. You have completed our fine print.
