a) Your response to this web page and/or any inquiry you make through our website does not create a lawyer/client relationship. Unless we are retained, we cannot guarantee or undertake to maintain your information in confidence. Anyone sending us confidential information prior to both parties agreeing that we will be your lawyers, runs the risk of disclosure and adverse use of their information. So, don’t send us anything confidential until you have talked to one of our lawyers and you have decided to retain us and we have agreed to act for you.

b) Upon receipt of your contact information we will be in touch and will first check to make sure that we wouldn’t have a conflict if we act for you. That means that if we are already acting for, or have acted for someone involved in your dispute, we can’t take your file. If that is the case, we’ll advise you immediately and won’t be able to help you.

c) The use of the internet or this form of communication with Lindsay Kenney LLP or any individual member of the firm is not secure and we cannot guarantee that information sent over the internet will remain confidential.

d) Information on this website is for general use only, is not legal advice, and because there are so many variables, should not be relied upon by you to deal with your legal problems. If you choose to rely on it, you do so at your own risk.
