You only become a client of the firm after 1) You have signed a written agreement with the Managing Attorney which identifies the specific services to be provided to you and the fees to be charged by the firm and 2) you have paid the required fees. If you become a client of the firm, we will provide you with access to our online client portal so that you can view your case file and communicate with the Managing Attorney in a confidential, secure manner.
No attorney-client relationship is formed by visiting our website, by requesting legal services through our website, by accessing the free articles and videos on our website, or by reaching out to us by phone, email, or otherwise. For this reason, we ask that you refrain from sending highly confidential information to us until we form an attorney-client relationship with you. But it’s okay to describe yur legal issues to us in general terms to seek preliminary information about us or our services.
Our website is one of the main ways that we interact with our actual and potential clients.
We and our technology vendors work hard to ensure that the website is always up and available, but we can’t guarantee that the website will not have downtime for any reason. We reserve the right to close the website for short periods of time for regular updates and for general maintenance but will attempt to keep this to a minimum. We will not be liable if all or any part of the website is unavailable for any reason at any time, for any length of time.
You should also know that our website is a work in progress, meaning that things could change in the near future.
In addition, although the website may be accessible worldwide through the Internet, We reserve the right to limit access to our website & the provision of our products or services to any person, geographic area, country, or jurisdiction in our sole discretion. Any offer for any product or service made through our website is void where prohibited.
An overview of the services we offer can be found on under the “Services” tab of the website’s main menu.
We reserve the right to add new services, modify existing services, or discontinue services altogether at any time in our own discretion. We also reserve the right to modify any fees advertised on our website at any time in our own discretion, without notice.
As mentioned in our response to question 1, the Managing Attorney provides all services offered by the firm. She is licensed to practice law in the state of New York, and as such, she is also permitted to advise about matters related to federal law. We do not represent to anyone that the Managing Attorney is licensed to practice law in any other state.
Initial consultations with the Managing Attorney are conducted by video chat.
In addition to meeting the Managing Attorney, the purpose of the call is for the Managing Attorney to provide you with information about how the firm can assist you with your legal issues. However, the consultation does not form an attorney-client relationship between you and the Managing Attorney or the firm.
If you decide that you would like to work with the Managing Attorney beyond the call, you may request legal services from the Managing Attorney. It is within the Managing Attorney’s sole discretion whether to agree to provide those services. If the Managing Attorney agrees to provide the requested services, those services will be covered by a separate written agreement.
The Managing Attorney spends quality time to prepare for each consultation. So, if you need to cancel your consultation, please do so at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment in order to receive a refund.
If you cancel your consultation less than 24 hours before it is scheduled to take place, we will not issue a refund. Instead, we will treat it as a request to reschedule and allow tou to select another time to speak with the Managing Attorney.
In addition, if the firm accepts you as a client, you will need to sign an agreement to formally engage the firm’s legal services.

If a workable resolution can’t be reached by working with us, then another dispute resolution mechanism will need to be used. In that case:
- The Terms and any dispute or claim arising out of, or related to them, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of laws principles.
- Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms, the website, or the firm’s services must be brought in the courts of the State of New York.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms is not a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that particular provision will be deemed modified so as to be lawful to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the provision cannot be so modified, then that particular provision, and not the rest of the Terms, will be inoperative. The rest of the Terms will continue in force.
