This Website Is for Informational Purposes Only
While this website may considered an attorney advertisement for Stephen C. Rubino and McLaughlin & Lauricella P.C. (“The Attorneys”), the materials located on this website are for general informational purposes only, and do not constitute legal advice, provide legal opinions, or constitute an agreement for legal services. This information on this site is not intended to provide a comprehensive or a complete summary of the law. While it is the goal of this website to provide accurate information, as laws change frequently and may become out of date, we cannot guarantee that the information provided in this website is accurate or appropriate for an individual’s specific situation.

No Client-Lawyer Relationship Created by This Website
Under no circumstances does use of this website establish or create, directly or indirectly, an attorney-client relationship between you and the Attorneys. While the Attorneys’s attorneys are available for consultation regarding legal matters, the act of sending electronic mail or making an online contact, asking a question, and/or scheduling a consultation does not create an attorney-client relationship with any member of the Attorneys. The Attorneys are under no obligation to respond to your messages, and if such response is given, that response alone does not create an attorney-client relationship. The attorney-client privilege will not protect your message, as you do not have an attorney-client relationship with the Attorneys solely as a result of your initial inquiry.
Written Engagement Letter Required to Form Attorney-Client Relationship
We do not enter into an attorney-client relationship with prospective clients until 1) the client has agreed in writing to hire us and signed a written Engagement Letter that we will prepare, 2) we have specifically agreed to act as the client’s attorneys and signed the written Engagement Letter, and 3) the client has paid any required retainer or deposit. Unless both we and you agree to the terms of and sign a written Engagement Letter, and you have paid the retainer or deposit, you do not have an attorney-client relationship with any attorney in this Firm.

The law is constantly changing, and its application to a particular case will depend upon the facts and circumstances unique to each case.
