The content, organization, graphics, design, compilation, magnetic translation, digital conversion and other matters related to the Site (collectively “Protected Work”) are protected under applicable copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws. You may not copy, redistribute, use or publish any Protected Work without the prior written consent of its owner. You do not acquire ownership rights to any Protected Work viewed through the Site. I do not waive my rights in any Protected Work by posting it on the Site. Some of the content on the Site is Protected Work owned by third parties.

You may provide links to the Site, provided that (a) you do not remove or obscure, by framing or otherwise, advertisements, the copyright notices, or other notices on the Site, (b) the web site to which the Site is linked does not engage in or advertise illegal or pornographic activities, and (c) you discontinue providing links to the Site immediately upon my request.
Costs of Enforcement

I recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit the Site. When you visit the Site, you do so without telling me who you are and without revealing any personal information. While I do not collect personally identifying information about visitors to the Site, I do use standard software to collect statistical information for the purpose of tracking activity on the Site. This allows me to understand better how many people use the Site and which pages and features are most popular. The only information that I normally collect and store is:
• The name of your Internet service provider
• The web site (if any) that referred you to the Site
• The specific page or pages of the Site that were accessed
• The date and time that those pages were accessed
In some parts of the Site you might be asked to provide personal information, knowingly and voluntarily. For example, if you fill out the form on my Contact page or send me email, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, telephone number, email address, the kind of inquiry you are making, and any other information necessary for us to respond to you. When you communicate with me in this way, you are not unwittingly transmitting personally identifying information that you have not voluntarily entered. I use any information that you share with me only for the purpose of responding to your communication. I will not give or sell your personal information to any other person or organization.
No Attorney-Client Relationship.
Please understand that I have retired from the practice of law. I do not represent you, and I will not have an attorney-client relationship with you. Because I am not your attorney, your initial email message and other communications might not be protected by attorney-client privilege. This means that you and I could potentially be ordered by a court to disclose the content of these communications. For this reason, please do not send sensitive or confidential information to me in email messages.
I hope that you find the Site useful and informative. If you have questions or suggestions about the Site, please share them with me. Thank you.
