We may revise these Terms at any time without notice to you by posting revised Terms on this Page. Your continued use of this Site shall constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms.

No Legal Advice

This information is not intended as legal advice and should not be relied upon as such.  You should not act or rely on any information in this Site without seeking the advice of an attorney, as the advice appropriate for you will be dependent upon the particular facts and circumstances of your situation.

No Attorney-Client Relationship
Neither the use of this Site nor the transmission or receipt of any information will create an attorney-client relationship. The only way to become our client is by specific and explicit agreement with an individual attorney at K&P.   If you would like to retain our services, please contact one of our attorneys directly.  We will determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing to accept professional responsibility and whether representing you would raise a conflict of interest with our other clients.  We reserve the right to accept or decline any representation. You should therefore not provide us with any confidential information until after we have had an opportunity to determine whether we are willing and able to represent you.  If you are not currently a client of K&P, any email that you send to us will not be privileged and may be disclosed as necessary.
