No Attorney-Client Relationship or Legal Advice:           
This site contains general information about The Business and Legal Advisors, LLC (“BLA”). The reader should not consider information on this site to be an invitation for any attorney-client relationship and should not rely on the information as legal advice for any purpose as it may not reflect current legal developments or may not be applicable to your particular situation.

Any communication with BLA, including emails sent to BLA or its attorney or at e-mail addresses listed on this Website or through this site, is not secure or confidential and does not create an attorney-client relationship.  If you would like to establish confidentiality and an attorney-client relationship, BLA is happy to provide you with an engagement letter. Therefore, it is imperative that you not provide any unsolicited information that you may deem as confidential until an attorney-client relationship has been established.
