Our offices are located in the State of California and our attorneys are licensed to practice law by the State Bar of California.

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

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.
