The Website, including without limitation content regarding legal issues and developments, is provided for general informational purposes only, and is not intended to, and does not, constitute legal advice, legal opinion, or legal services under any circumstances.

1.2. No Attorney-Client Relationship or Privilege
Your access to or use of the Website or any portion thereof, including but not limited to any Content or email links or other contact information listed for and the related content attorneys, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and and the related content. Your transmission or communication of any information, whatever its nature, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Lloyd & Mousilli and does not invoke any attorney-client privilege. Lloyd & Mousilli only enters into attorney-client relationships after undertaking certain procedures unrelated to this Site, in accordance with its own policies and the rules and regulations of the Bar Associations of the states in which it maintains offices. These procedures include, without limitation, a consultation that is understood and acknowledged by both parties to potentially lead to an attorney-client relationship, the consideration by Lloyd & Mousilli of potential conflicts of interest and professional responsibility, and the execution of a formal engagement letter between the parties memorializing and outlining the scope of the attorney-client relationship. Further, because an attorney-client relationship will not result from any access or use of the Site by you or transmission or communication of information to Lloyd & Mousilli by you, such actions shall not prevent Lloyd & Mousilli from representing any other party, including without limitation any party with business or legal interests adverse to you.

You acknowledge and agree that, unless you are an existing client of Lloyd & Mousilli, any email, voicemail, telephone call, chat message, or other communication from you to Lloyd & Mousilli or any of its attorneys or other employees, whatever the nature of such communication, shall not be treated as confidential. If you are not already an existing client of Lloyd & Mousilli you should not communicate or transmit to us any information of a sensitive, confidential, or proprietary nature, as Lloyd & Mousilli makes no guarantees or representations regarding the security, use, disclosure, or return of any information or communication received from you, absent an independent, explicit agreement between you and Lloyd & Mousilli. In any case, given the inherent insecurity of email communication and the Internet, Lloyd & Mousilli cannot guarantee, and assumes no responsibility for, the integrity or confidentiality of any unencrypted email you send to Lloyd & Mousilli, whether in connection with an existing attorney-client relationship or otherwise.
