This Disclaimer and Terms (the “Terms”) govern your use of the Burgoyne Law Group’s website (the “Website”). By using the Website, you acknowledge that you understand the Terms, and that you agree to be bound by them. The Terms may change from time to time. You should therefore refer to the Terms every time you use the Website.
The Website is provided for informational purposes only. It does not constitute legal advice, and your use of the Website and/or your contacting the Burgoyne Law Group through the Website does not create an attorney-client relationship. The Burgoyne Law Group cannot represent you, or receive any confidential information from you, until the Burgoyne Law Group has performed a conflicts check, and until you and the Burgoyne Law Group have entered into a mutually-acceptable engagement agreement. These requirements are for the benefit of you, the Burgoyne Law Group, and the Burgoyne Law Group’s past and current clients. If you would like the Burgoyne Law Group to represent you, please contact the Burgoyne Law Group through one of the means provided by the Website.
Unless and until an attorney-client relationship has been created, you should not supply the Burgoyne Law Group – whether through this Website or by any other means – with confidential information. Emails and other communications sent outside the context of the attorney-client relationship and containing confidential information do not in-and-of-themselves create an attorney-client relationship. Thus, the contents of such emails and other communications may not be protected from disclosure. What’s more, in the event that the Burgoyne Law Group ends up representing a party that is adverse to you, the Burgoyne Law Group may be able to use the confidential information you have provided on behalf of that party and against you.
Different jurisdictions have different laws, regulations and ethical rules affecting websites and the practice of law. The Burgoyne Law Group does not, through the Website, seek to represent any party in any jurisdiction where the Website may fail to comply with any legal or ethical requirements. If you have reason to believe that the Website does not comply with the legal or ethical requirements applicable to the jurisdiction where you are located, please disregard it, and seek information about the Burgoyne Law Group by calling us at (415) 795-4070. The attorney responsible for the Website is Hank Burgoyne. He can be reached at the Burgoyne Law Group’s principal office, located at 870 Market Street, Suite 985, San Francisco, CA 94102, (415) 795-4070.
Legal advice should be specifically tailored to the circumstances of any given case. Thus, the Website does not provide, and was not intended to provide, legal advice. The Burgoyne Law Group makes reasonable efforts to keep the Website current. It cannot, however, guarantee that the information on the Website is accurate, complete or up-to-date. The Burgoyne Law Group makes no warranties or representations of any kind regarding the information on the Website, including without limitation as to accuracy, completeness or timeliness. You should not, under any circumstance, act or rely on the information on the Website without first seeking the advice of competent counsel.
The Website may contain links to third-party websites. The Burgoyne Law Group does not have control over those third-party websites, and is therefore not responsible for their content. Any links on the Website to third-party websites do not necessarily suggest the endorsement or approval of content located there. In the event you choose to visit a third-party website, you do so at your own risk, and subject to any terms, conditions or privacy policies governing the use of that website.
You are responsible for any damages resulting from your unlawful or intentionally malicious uses of the Website, or for your failure to abide by the Terms (collectively, “Violations”). You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Burgoyne Law Group and its owners, employees and agents against any claims, costs and expenses resulting from your Violations. If you have any questions about the scope of this indemnity obligation, please contact the Burgoyne Law Group.
The Website may be considered an advertisement for the Burgoyne Law Group. Pursuant to California Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1-400, the Website is a “communication” concerning the availability of the Burgoyne Law Group for professional employment. Any testimonial or endorsement located on the Website does not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your legal matter, as prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes. The Website does not represent, and does not intend to represent, that the quality of legal services performed by the Burgoyne Law Group is greater than the quality of services performed by other lawyers. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision. Anyone considering hiring a lawyer should independently investigate that lawyer’s credentials and ability, and should not rely solely upon that lawyer’s advertising and self-proclaimed expertise.
