Disclaimer (Sorry. We’re lawyers.)

Most of this is common sense, but as with many things in life, it’s better if the details are clearly spelled out in order to avoid confusion. We’ll try to make this short and sweet; the expanded legal version is detailed below.

The unofficial version:

  1. We are not your lawyers until we say we’re your lawyers. (You will usually know this because you will just have written us a check and signed a fee agreement.)
  2. The information on this website is not “legal advice.” Don’t think the things you read here are guaranteed to be 100% current or that they necessarily apply to your particular situation. We would need to talk with you before giving you personal legal advice.
  3. It’s not our fault if information in external links (off our website) is incomplete, inaccurate, out-of-date, or otherwise bad.  We provide these links because we think some of the information there might be helpful to you. However, we link to some stuff that is not owned by our firm and we don’t have control over that content. (This is an internet “duh,” but for some reason we still need to say it.)
  4. There may be security and/or confidentiality risks in emailing us. We encourage you to read the details in #4 below, because you need to know this.
  5. We are under the jurisdiction of the state of Minnesota. The information on this site may not apply to other states.

The official version:

  1. No attorney-client relationship. Lampe Law maintains this website exclusively for informational purposes. It is not legal or other professional advice and does not necessarily represent the opinion of Lampe Law or its clients. Viewing this site, using information from it, or communicating with Lampe Law through this site by Internet e-mail does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Lampe Law.
  2. Nonreliance. Online readers should not act or decline to act, based on content from this site, without first consulting an attorney or other appropriate professional. Because the law changes constantly, this website’s content may not indicate the current state of the law. Nothing on this site predicts or guarantees future results. Lampe Law Group is not liable for the use or interpretation of information contained on this site, and expressly disclaims all liability for any actions you take or do not take, based on this site’s content.
  3. Links. Lampe Law Group does not necessarily endorse and is not responsible for content accessed through this website’s links to other Internet resources. Correctness and adequacy of information on those sites is not guaranteed, and unless otherwise stated, Lampe Law Group is not associated with such linked sites.
  4. Contacting us. You may e-mail us through this site, but information you send to Lampe Law Group through e-mail or this website is not secure and may not be confidential. Communications to us will not be treated as privileged unless we already represent you. Do not send us confidential information until you have established a formal attorney-client relationship with Lampe Law Group. Even if we represent you, understand that Internet e-mail security is still uncertain and that you accept all risks of such uncertainty and potential lack of confidentiality when you send us unencrypted, sensitive, or confidential e-mail. E-mail from Lampe Law Group never constitutes an electronic signature, unless it expressly says so.
  5. Jurisdiction. Legal problems and solutions depend on their unique facts. Laws and regulations often differ from one jurisdiction to another. Materials on this website may be inappropriate in jurisdictions other than Minnesota. Lampe Law Group’s attorneys practice primarily in the State of Minnesota. Users who access this website from other locations do so at their own risk and are responsible for complying with local laws and regulations. This website (not including linked sites) is controlled by Lampe Law Group. The laws of Minnesota apply to everything concerning use of this website, without regard to Minnesota’s conflict of laws principles. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the appropriate Minnesota court to resolve any dispute concerning your use of this website.
