Legal Disclaimer

This site is owned and maintained by Vaksman Khalfin, PC (“VK”).

VK makes available the information and materials on this site for general informational purposes only. Nothing on this site is intended to create or solicit an attorney-client relationship and nothing posted constitutes legal advice or the solicitation for a formation of an attorney-client relationship. Neither the transmission of the information contained on this site nor your use of the information for communication with VK is sufficient to create an attorney-client relationship between you and VK. An attorney-client relationship can only be created by the mutual assent of both parties and only after a consultation. VK cannot agree to be retained as counsel until a conflict-of-interest check is completed and a written engagement and fee agreement provided by VK is signed by you and a VK attorney.

Accordingly, unsolicited emails to VK do not create an attorney-client relationship and confidential or secret information included in such emails cannot be protected from disclosure. Without a confirmed attorney-client relationship between VK and you agreed to by VK, the owners of and contributors to this site have no duty to keep confidential any information you provide them.

Moreover, VK’s site should not be used as a substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney licensed or authorized to practice in your jurisdiction. Anyone seeking legal advice should consult a suitably qualified attorney regarding the specific legal problem or matter. VK’s site is not intended to provide legal advice to users, but, rather, provide general information about our firm. Accordingly, this site is not intended to, nor should, be used a substitute for the advice of competent, retained, legal counsel. Legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing. VK assumes no responsibility to any person who relies on information contained on this site and disclaims all liability in respect to such information. You should not act upon information in this website without seeking professional counsel from an attorney admitted or authorized to practice in your jurisdiction.

VK has offices in California, Nevada, New York, Oregon, and other jurisdictions where laws and regulations nay differ substantially. VK does not through this site seek to represent anyone in a jurisdiction where this site may fail to comply with the laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.

VK has attorneys licensed to practice law in California, Nevada, New York and Oregon, but not all VK attorneys are licensed to practice law in each state. As such, when making your inquiry to our administrative team, they will direct you to a VK attorney that is licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction. VK attorneys do not seek to practice law in states, territories, and foreign countries where they are not properly authorized to do so.
