These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) govern your use of and access to www.posticbates.com, its sub-domains, and affiliated sites, as well as Postic & Bates, A Professional Corporation’s (“Postic & Bates” “we” or “us”) pages and accounts on Facebook®, Twitter®, LinkedIn®, Google+®, YouTube®, and similar sites (referenced below as “Site(s), Pages, and Accounts”).

Postic & Bates exclusively owns and controls our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts, which provide information about our attorneys and services, and may, from time to time, provide access to educational materials pertaining to a variety of legal issues. You agree that use or access to any or all of our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts does not, standing alone, create an attorney-client relationship with Postic & Bates or any attorney associated with Postic & Bates. Furthermore, you agree that content provided via our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts is generalized knowledge about legal concepts and not specific legal advice as to specific facts. You agree that you should seek the advice of counsel regarding any specific legal matter that you may encounter.

Our Privacy Policy is incorporated in these Terms. By using any or all of our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not want to agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts. We may modify these Terms from time to time.

No Attorney-Client Relationship; Inquiries about Representation; Transmission of Information.

All materials on our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts are provided for informational purposes only and do not contain legal advice, legal opinions or any other form of advice regarding any specific facts or circumstances. The transmission of information to or from any of Postic & Bates law firm’s Site(s), Pages, and Accounts (1) does not create an attorney-client relationship, (2) is not intended as a solicitation to create an attorney-client relationship to provide legal services as to any particular matter, and (3) is not intended to convey or constitute legal advice, or to provide a substitute for obtaining legal advice from a qualified attorney. Forms, emails and any other communication sent through this site may not be confidential. Therefore, please do not send us any confidential information about any matter for which you seek legal representation until you have spoken with a Postic & Bates attorney and obtained prior written approval.

You should not act upon any such information without seeking qualified legal counsel on your specific needs. Postic & Bates does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit our Site(s), Pages, and Accounts, or based upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules.

If you would like Postic & Bates to represent you, the best way to initiate a discussion about that representation is to call the firm at (405) 691-5080 or contact us through this website. Under no circumstance should you provide us with information pertaining to a matter without first speaking directly to one of our attorneys. For your own protection and that of our current and past clients, before we can agree to represent you we must first determine that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Unless the attorney you contact says otherwise, please do not provide us with any more information than deemed necessary by that attorney to make an informed determination of whether we have a conflict of interest and whether to represent you in the matter. Unless the attorney you contact says otherwise, your provision of confidential information to us to allow us to make these determinations does not preclude us from representing a party adverse to you in the event that we do not enter into an engagement for an attorney-client relationship.

E-mail may be used to request an attorney to call you to discuss the possibility of establishing an attorney-client relationship. However, if you choose to contact one of our attorneys at Postic & Bates by e-mail for this purpose, please do not give us any confidential information in the e-mail. If you do so, we are not obliged to keep it confidential.

If you are an existing client, please do not send confidential information by e-mail unless specifically approved in advance by your attorney.

Please also be aware that any communication sent to us by e-mail may be intercepted by third parties who may be under no obligation to keep such communication confidential. Before sending any information, you should contact us to arrange suitable means to protect it.
