Attorney-Client Relationship

This website is for informational purposes only. It is not intended to, and does not, constitute legal advice or a legal opinion. Receipt of information from this website does not create an attorney-client relationship between Read and Laniado, LLP, and the viewer of this site nor does it constitute an offer to represent you. No attorney-client relationship will exist until an authorized representative or Read and Laniado, LLP, expressly agrees that the firm will represent you. You should not act or rely upon any information obtained from this site without first seeking the advice of an attorney about your specific situation. Read and Laniado, LLP, expressly disclaims liability for any actions taken or not taken in reliance on this website.

Choice of an Attorney

The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered.


Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer.


Please do not send us any sensitive or confidential information until one of our attorneys asks you to do so. Such communication could create conflicts of interest with current clients. Also, your communication will not create an attorney-client relationship with us. Therefore, the attorney-client privilege will not apply to your communication, and it will not necessarily be kept privileged and confidential.

Past results achieved for our clients do not guarantee future results.

While the firm endeavors to respond to all messages received, we undertake no legal obligation to do so.
