Terms & Conditions of Use

Welcome to woodmclaw.com (the "Site"). This Site is operated by Wooden & McLaughlin LLP ("W&M"). Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using this Site. By using the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. W&M provides the information on these pages as a public service. Information contained in these pages is not intended as, and should not be taken as, legal advice. The use of the information provided in these pages should not be taken as establishing any contractual or other form of attorney-client relationship between W&M and the reader or user of this information. W&M reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use at any time by posting modified Terms of Use, and your continued use of the Site thereafter will constitute agreement with such modifications.

No Creation of Attorney Client Relationship
Transmission of the information in W&M's web site is not intended to create, and receipt does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. While we would like to hear from you, please understand that merely contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship. We cannot become your lawyers or represent you in any way unless (1) we know that doing so would not create a conflict of interest with any of the clients we represent, and (2) satisfactory arrangements have been made with us for representation. Recipients of electronic communications and online readers should not rely upon the transmission of an email message to W&M through this web site to create an attorney-client relationship. Internet subscribers and online readers should not act upon any information in this web site without first consulting legal counsel of their own directly.

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before selection of counsel, users should speak to a prospective attorney or law firm to about their qualifications and experience. The information in this web site is not provided in the course of an attorney-client relationship and is not intended to constitute legal advice or to substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney licensed in the appropriate jurisdiction. With that in mind, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you unless we have agreed that we will be your lawyers and represent your interests and you have received a letter from us to that effect (called an "engagement letter"). If and when you receive an engagement letter from us, you will be our client, and we may then exchange information.

W&M is unwilling to assume the representation of clients without a written engagement letter. No representation is made or intended that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. In situations in which our fees are contingent or partially contingent on the outcome of the case or transaction, the client is obligated for payment of court costs and expenses regardless of outcome. The attorneys listed in this web site are admitted to practice in the state of Indiana and only those other states specifically mentioned. Each representation has unique facts and circumstances that may impact results.
