Dear New York Employee:
If your non-disclosure agreement is modified from a standard form (such as: http://www.hbs.edu/entrepreneurship/pdf/Sample_NDA.pdf and http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/sample-confidentiality-agreement-nda-33343.html) why would you expect an attorney to work for free to provide to you the legal advice you require in a private and confidential setting?
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
Can I come to your job and get stuff for free?
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
You should visit the links below and inquire about free legal assistance. You should also query Google for [ "pro bono" services "New York" ] and [ free legal aid NY ]. In addition, many law schools offer low cost or no cost legal aid services via law students under the supervision of an experienced faculty member. Good luck.
The above response is general information ONLY and is not legal advice, does not form an attorney-client relationship, and should NOT be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. I am not your attorney. You should seek the advice of competent counsel before taking any action related to your inquiry.
You also should know that even if there was enough room to type in your whole document, this is not the forum for specific legal advice and that is what you need to get.
Please note: This answer is not intended and should not be considered as legal advice. Such professional advice requires full disclosure to an attorney of a client’s circumstances and that attorney’s opportunity to analyze those circumstances against applicable law.
Most NDAs are standard-form contracts. That said, it is prudent to review the document carefully and if still unclear as to any provision(s), seek experienced counsel If you do not have the money to cover what would likely be just a couple hours of an attorney's time, you are encouraged to seek out a pro bono legal association or a the help of a clinic at a law school.
Either way, Avvo's "Answer this Question" tool is not the proper forum for this kind of request, as the attorneys here only try to provide helpful tips and direction for legal issues and do not conduct actual document review or provide legal services, nor should any comment from my fellow attorneys here be deemed to create an attorney-client relationship of any kind.
Best of luck in your search.
