If you do not agree with these Terms of Use, then you should not use this Website.

The Website presents general information about ECJ and is not intended as legal advice nor should you consider it as such. You should not act upon the information on this Website without seeking advice from a lawyer licensed in your own state or country. As used herein, “you” or “user” means anyone who accesses or uses the Website including individuals acting on behalf of any corporation, partnership or other entity with which you are associated.

These Terms of Use are effective as of the date first listed herein above and we will not be bound by any additional or different terms on other documents that are inconsistent with these terms. Your continued access to the Website or use of the Website following the posting of any additional or different terms and conditions constitutes your acceptance of those additional or different terms and conditions.  ECJ, in its sole discretion, may also add, delete or change some or all of the features of the Website at any time or from time to time.

Other Jurisdictions

Our offices are located in the State of California and our attorneys are licensed to practice law by the State Bar of California. We do not seek to, and are unwilling to, represent anyone in any jurisdiction where this Website does not comply or is any way inconsistent with the rules governing communication of legal services in a particular state.

The contents of this Website may constitute advertising under the applicable laws, regulations and ethical rules of some jurisdictions. If this Website fails to comply with the laws, regulations or ethical rules of the state from which you access or view this Website, ECJ does not wish to represent you under those circumstances. 

Unless otherwise noted, ECJ attorneys are not certified by the boards of legal specialization of any state.

No Legal Services or Attorney-Client Relationship

The materials available on this Website are intended for informational purposes only. The information provided on this Website does not constitute, and is not a substitute for, legal advice from qualified counsel. You must not and are not authorized to rely on this Website as a source of legal advice. Your use of this Website does not create any attorney-client relationship between you and ECJ. The opinions expressed on or through this Website are the opinions of the individual authors and may not necessarily reflect the opinions of ECJ or any individual attorney.

Communications

Please contact us if you are interested in potential legal representation. Please note, however, that the contents of any communication you send to us, electronically or by any other means, will not be considered confidential unless and until we have confirmed in writing to you our acceptance of an engagement to undertake the legal services you request and you have established an attorney-client relationship with us. The Website is not an invitation to form an attorney-client relationship. You should not transmit any confidential or private information to us until a formal attorney-client relationship has been established. ECJ does not agree to accept and/or maintain the secrecy of any unsolicited information you send to us unless an attorney-client relationship currently exists between us. ECJ cannot permit an attorney-client relationship to exist until we have obtained all necessary information and evaluated all relevant information concerning potential conflicts of interest. Even in the absence of a conflict of interest, ECJ, in its sole discretion, may decide not to enter into an attorney-client relationship with you.
