This is a public forum and any information exchanged, question or answer, is not to be construed as giving any legal advice or forming any attorney-client relationship. Any information imparted can only be based solely on the facts provided, if any. A complete opinion or analysis is not possible in a public forum. 

You should seek competent legal advice when the need arises independent of any public forum.

The answers I give are neither offers nor messages concerning my availability for professional employment; they do not invite readers to employ me or my services, nor are they to be construed to specifically describe the services that I offer. Therefore any answers I give are not intended to be “communications” directly soliciting direct client employment by me.
