Welcome message and site overview   This is an advertisement    Notices and disclaimers

"I once saw a disclaimer that said:

'DISCLAIMER:  I take no interest in reading long-winded disclaimers.'

Anyone who has visited many law firm sites appreciates the humor of that disclaimer.

In my opinion, however, an appropriate set of disclaimers is a positive indicator that a firm can be expected to handle a  client's matter in a lawyerly manner. After all, if a firm is not careful about protecting itself, what does that indicate about how carefully it will protect a client?

The Internet is a wonderful thing, but it has also raised its own set of issues for the field of legal ethics. Lawyers and law firms are well-advised to think through those issues before launching websites, and to take appropriate precautions."
