Information on the Site has been made available solely for informational purposes only and does not constitute advertising, a solicitation, or any legal or business advice. The information contained on the Site is provided only as general information and does not necessarily reflect current law or best practices on the subject. Your access of the information on the Site, or transmission and receipt of the materials and information contained herein, is not intended to create, and does not create or constitute an attorney-client relationship nor any other business, consulting or fiduciary relationship. An attorney-client or other business relationship will be created, if at all, only by means of a written agreement signed by the Law Offices of Mark Foster and the client. Readers of the Site should not rely upon this information for any purpose without seeking legal advice from a licensed attorney in the reader’s jurisdiction. Information on the Site is not promised or warranted to be correct or complete. The Law Offices of Mark Foster expressly disclaims all liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based on any content on the Site.
You should not send us any confidential information pertaining to potential legal services or any other business matter unless you have received written agreement from the Law Offices of Mark Foster to perform the services you requested. You may send us email communication, but unless you have received from us such written confirmation of an attorney-client or other confidential relationship, we will not consider any correspondence you send us as confidential. If you communicate with us by e-mail at any time, you acknowledge that Internet e-mail is inherently not a secure method of communication. By sending sensitive or confidential e-mail messages which are not encrypted, you accept the risk of such insecurity including possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet.
The Law Offices of Mark Foster will not represent anyone based upon viewing the Site in a jurisdiction where the Site does not comply with all laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.
We may provide links to other websites or third-party information. By doing so, we are not necessarily endorsing, and we are not responsible for, any third-party content that may be accessed through this website.
