4.2. Law Firms.
It is important to understand that communication with a lawyer or law
firm by e-mail, including use of information resources provided by a law
firm via a WWW server or other Internet resource, DOES NOT without an
explicit mutual agreement create an attorney-client relationship. A
lawyer-client relationship can be created by e-mail only by a direct and
explicit agreement, confirmed by the lawyer or law firm and the client.
No implicit agreement can be asserted. Accordingly, great care should be
taken not to communicate information deemed confidential absent such
explicit confirmation. Contact your local bar association if you are in
doubt about the law in your jurisdiction.
The law firms listed here are under no obligation to keep any
information you send them confidential until after they agree to form a
lawyer-client relationship with you. You should use e-mail or any
information services lawyers or firms provide via the Internet only as a
means of learning more about a lawyer or firm. If a lawyer or firm does
agree to represent you, you should then discuss how best to exchange
The firms listed below are among the few with connections to the
Internet. Nearly all of them subscribe to The Legal List. All of the
firms below are accessible via e-mail, some have gone the extra step of
