Terms, Conditions, and Disclosures
1. Office Location and Responsible Attorney
To the extent that any applicable ethical rules or laws require us to name a principal office and/or a single attorney responsible for this Site, the Firm designates its principal office as 15455 Middlebelt Rd, Livonia, MI 48154 and the responsible attorney as Evan Ficaj.
2. Not Legal Advice & No Attorney-Client Relationship
IMPORTANT: While we are happy to have you contact us and visit our website, doing so does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is created only when both you and the Evan Ficaj Law Firm PLLC have signed a Representation Agreement that details the scope and terms of our engagement. Please do not submit any confidential information about a matter on a web form. Since there is no attorney-client relationship, any information you submit does not prevent us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
The Firm prepared the Materials on this Site for informational purposes only, and the Materials are not legal advice. This information does not create, and receipt of it does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. Internet visitors and online readers should not act upon this information without seeking professional counsel. Although the Firm endeavors to keep this Site current and correct, the content on the Site may not reflect recent legal developments. The Firm expressly disclaims all liability regarding actions taken or not taken based on the content of this Site.
