We would like to hear from you, but please understand that we cannot represent you until we resolve conflicts of interest that may exist and agree to the terms of representation.

Our review of your information transmitted in this manner, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if it is designated as confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.
