Please read this Agreement carefully, because all materials on this Site and any services provided by the Sean Morrison Law Offices LLC are subject to this Agreement. You can print these terms and conditions for your own records.

In accessing, browsing and/or using any area of the Site, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.  We may make revisions to this Agreement from time to time.  By using the Site, you agree to be bound by such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to determine the then current version of this Agreement to which you are bound.  The Firm will inform existing users when this Agreement is revised by posting a Notice of Change on our homepage.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions under this Agreement, do not use the Site.

  1. The content of the Site is provided “AS IS” and without warranties of any kind, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement.

2.     No Attorney-Client Relationship or Legal Advice

Use of this Site does not create an attorney-client relationship. The materials provided on the Site are intended for general information purposes only to help you learn more about our firm, the services we provide, and the law in general. None of the information on this Site constitutes legal advice and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the attorneys in this firm. The information is not guaranteed to be correct, complete, or up to date. The information should not be acted upon without consulting an attorney, and is subject to change without notice.

We will not provide any legal advice until an attorney-client relationship is formally established. Transmission of information of any kind to the Sean Morrison Law Offices LLC does not, by itself, create an attorney-client relationship. Any information conveyed through the internet outside of the secure Virtual Law Office may not be secure, and information conveyed prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship may not be privileged or confidential.

In order to become a client, you must register for the Virtual Law Office through the secure portal or call us. There is no fee charged for registering. By registering, you represent that you are at least 18 years old and able to enter into a binding contract, and that all of the information you provide is accurate and up to date. Once you have registered, you may request services in a secure manner. Registration does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney will first review the matter and determine whether the Sean Morrison Law Offices LLC will accept the case. The attorney-client relationship will only be created when it is expressly done so in writing by the Sean Morrison Law Offices LLC when both parties have fully agreed on the terms of the representation.

3.     Licensing Status

The Sean Morrison Law Offices LLC does not wish to represent anyone based upon viewing this Site in a jurisdiction where this Site would fail to comply with the applicable laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.
