You acknowledge and agree that the information provided on this website does not constitute legal advice. The website does not offer legal advice about specific situations or problems. Nothing on this site creates an express or implied contract. McPhillips Law PLLC does not intend to create an attorney-client relationship by inviting you to contact the firm, and an attorney-client relationship is not being formed in any manner by submitting information through this website or by sending an e-mail via the e-mail links on this website.

This means that nothing you send her will be kept confidential, unless mutually agreed that it will be kept confidential. In general, please refrain from sending privileged or confidential information through e-mail at all as the firm is unable to ensure the security of your e-mail. Once you enter into an engagement agreement with the firm to establish an attorney-client relationship, you will be provided with secure access to a client portal site to be used for exchanging communications and other documents. The client portal site is protected by encryption and other industry standard security measures.
