The materials on this web site are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice. Transmission of the information on this web site is not intended to create, and receipt of it does not constitute, a lawyer-client relationship. You should not rely upon this information without seeking professional counsel. This web site provides links to other internet sites. Michael L. Dear is not associated with and is not responsible for the content on those sites.

The transmission of an e-mail to any of our people does not create a lawyer-client relationship. If you have not received a written statement from us that we represent you, do not send us information concerning a legal problem or question, as that information may not be privileged or confidential.

While we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict-of-interest. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you (an “engagement letter”).

The best way for you to initiate a possible representation is to call Michael L. Dear at 407.494.6105. We will first take you through our conflict-of-interest procedure and evaluate your case. When you receive an engagement letter from Mike, you will be our client, and we may exchange information freely.
