Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
