I expect this website and blog to remain live on the Internet for a long time. You might be reading a post or other content long after it was originally posted. Therefore, it is possible that I might have past, present, or future relationships (financial or otherwise) with vendors or others mentioned in this issue. It is likely that links to Amazon in this newsletter will be affiliate links that might benefit me financially. Other links might generate commissions or other revenue. I do not believe these relationships will affect my independent judgement. However, I believe that there is nothing more important than learning to read and evaluate information on the Internet critically, and I encourage you to do so and make your own decisions considering any potential bias. This Blog/Web Site is made available by me for educational purposes only To the extent I discuss legal issues or legal services, I am only giving you general information and a general understanding of the law, not to providing specific legal advice. By using this blog site you understand that there is no attorney client relationship between you and me. TO make clear, you have not hired me as your attorney unless we have entered into a written engagement letter that I have signed. The Blog/Web Site should not be used as a substitute for competent legal advice from a licensed professional attorney in your state.
