First off, I’m not your lawyer. This is a strictly personal weblog which muses both on legal issues and my personal experiences. Writing to me does not make me your lawyer. Asking questions of me does not make me your lawyer. Please do not send me emails or messages concerning your specific legal situation; due to possible conflict issues, I will delete those emails without reading them.
Any writings in this blog (or any links from it) are simply not legal advice, either generally, or in reference to anyone’s specific circumstances. Do not rely on anything you read here as a definitive statement of the law or as legal advice.
Laws vary from place to place. If you have legal questions or require legal advice, contact a local lawyer, or better, several lawyers. A good place to begin is with your State's Bar. A Bar is an organization that regulates attorneys, and most have on-line resources that will help you find a lawyer.
All comments here reflect the changing views (such as they are) of their author(s), not my employer or any other person or party.
