No Confidentiality, No Attorney-Client Privilege
This Website provides general information about the law, legal issues, and legal developments. This information has been prepared for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. Accordingly, the Website’s provision of information may not be understood by anyone to constitute or contain legal advice, legal opinions or any other form of advice regarding any fact or circumstance. Neither you reading the information on this Website, or you listening to information on this Website, or you receiving information from this Website, nor your use of this Website to contact the Oberheiden Law Group, PLLC or any of Firm’s lawyers creates an attorney-client relationship. Specifically, your use of this Website does not make you a client of the Firm or even a prospective client of the Firm. While this Website may facilitate communications with our law firms, any messages sent or received via this Website should be assumed will not be regarded or treated as confidential or privileged. If you have confidential information to share with us, please contact us first to ask whether and how best to share that information.
No Guarantee of Results
Some of the case summaries, reports of past cases and their outcomes and the description of experience and past legal services in a lawyer’s profile on this Website outline and describe past cases handled by Firm’s lawyers. They are not intended to serve as a guarantee that the same or similar result can be achieved in every matter or in your case. You must not assume that a similar outcome and case result can be obtained in your case. Each case is different and the outcome of each case depends on a variety of factors, such as the specific facts, circumstances, and laws that apply to the case. Unexpected developments beyond the control of any client or lawyer may further make your case substantially different than cases handled by Firm’s lawyers in the past resulting in different and perhaps even negative outcomes in your case.
How to Become Our Client
You will only become a client of Firm if you sign (and, where applicable, fund) an engagement agreement between yourself and Firm. Purpose of such engagement agreement is to disclose the scope of Firm’s services, Firm’s fee arrangement and other important terms. Firm has a strict conflicts policy. Prior to accepting a new client, Firm carefully and diligently evaluates whether the acceptance of a new client could present a conflict to existing or past representations of other clients.
Unless otherwise expressly specified, the attorneys listed on this Website are not certified as specialists or experts by any professional or governmental agency or authority. Mentioning of Firm’s practice areas, practice focus, expertise, or legal experience are not intended to suggest board certification or to denigrate other law firms or attorneys in any way. Our attorneys are licensed in the jurisdictions listed in their respective profiles and our attorneys do not and do not intend to advise clients on the laws of states in which that respective lawyer is not licensed.
Authorized Practice of Law
Firm’s lawyers are not licensed in all U.S. states. The profile of each lawyer of Firm lists the jurisdiction in which that lawyer is licensed to practice law. The ability of any Firm lawyer to engage in services for a client outside of that lawyer’s state(s) licensure is subject to state law, and state professional rules and court orders. The Firm does not seek, and this Website is not intended to solicit legal engagements in jurisdictions in which lawyers of this Firm are not licensed if such engagements would constitute the unauthorized practice of law.
This Website may constitute advertising in some jurisdictions, but this Website is not intended as advertising or solicitation in any jurisdiction where the Website would be so characterized and would fail to comply with applicable laws and ethical rules of such jurisdiction.

The Website does not constitute a solicitation of employment for legal services.
