Thank you for visiting the Lyden, Chappell & Dewhirst, Ltd. Web site. We created this site so you could learn more about the legal services we offer. It is intended for informational purposes only. None of the information contained in this Web site is intended to constitute, nor does it constitute, either legal advice or a solicitation of any particular prospective client.
Our Web site is not intended to and does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Lyden, Chappell & Dewhirst, Ltd.. An attorney-client relationship cannot be formed with us by reading the information on this Web site. The only way to become our client is by specific and explicit agreement with an individual attorney at Lyden, Chappell & Dewhirst, Ltd.. By providing information about our firm on this Web site, we are not soliciting clients nor do we propose any type of transaction. You should not act or rely on any information contained on this Web site without seeking the advice of an attorney. The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise.
Any information that you send us in an e-mail message may not be confidential or privileged. Sending us an e-mail message will not make you a client of Lyden, Chappell & Dewhirst, Ltd.. If you are interested in having us represent you, call us at (419) 867-89000; we will determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. We will not make this determination by e-mail communication. We reserve the right to decline any representation. We may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with our other clients. You should therefore not provide us with any confidential information – whether by letter, e-mail or telephone – until after we have had an opportunity to determine whether representing you would create a conflict of interest with any of our other clients.
