Access to and use of the Site is subject to any specific terms and conditions set forth on the individual pages within the Site and the terms and conditions of this User Agreement (collectively, the “Site Agreement”), and all applicable laws and regulations, including laws and regulations governing copyright and trademark.

You shall comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our services.

Materials on this Site are provided for informational purposes only, and do not constitute legal advice, nor do they necessarily reflect the opinions of the Watanabe Law Group, P.C. or any of its attorneys or clients, and are not guaranteed to be complete, correct, or up-to-date. This Site is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship between you and Watanabe Law Group, P.C.. You should not act or rely on information in this Site without seeking the advice of an attorney and entering a written attorney-client relationship. Watanabe Law Group, P.C. requires a written engagement describing specifically the services that we are providing to enter into an attorney-client relationship.

While we would be pleased to communicate with you concerning legal matters, we cannot do so until we first know that doing so would not create a conflict of interest and that we are able to represent you in an efficient and professional manner. If you are interested in having Watanabe Law Group, P.C. represent you in a legal matter, the best way to initiate possible representation is to call (317) 708-9410 and schedule an appointment. We will arrange to have you go through our conflict of interest procedures and complete our consultation questionnaire.

Completing our online consultation form or completing any other order form or questionnaire does NOT create an attorney-client relationship and does not obligate Watanabe Law Group, P.C. to represent you in anyway. An attorney-client relationship is established only after you are notified through an engagement letter that we have completed our conflict check and are prepared to provide you with legal services. If you complete our online consultation form or any other order form or questionnaire and do not receive a response within 72 hours, please call our office. Watanabe Law Group, P.C. may respond by indicating that they do not wish to comment or provide legal advice concerning the information you provided. Watanabe Law Group, P.C. is not obligated to do anything with information provided by you.

You may also communicate with us by e-mail through the links located throughout the Site. Please do not send us any confidential information until after you have received an engagement letter from us indicating that we represent you. If you communicate with us through this Site, by e-mail or otherwise concerning a legal matter for which we do not already represent you, your communication may not be treated as privileged or confidential. While attorney-client communications that would be privileged if communicated in traditional fashion should not lose their privileged character when communicated without encryption via the internet, encryption protocols supported by Watanabe Law Group, P.C. are available upon request to clients that desire them for especially sensitive communications.

Hiring a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon written information about our qualifications and experience. Watanabe Law Group, P.C. has endeavored to comply with all known legal and ethical requirements in creating this Site. In some jurisdictions this Site may be considered advertising.
