While we are happy to have you contact us by telephone, U.S. mail, electronic mail or facsimile transmission, however, merely contacting DWGP or any DWGP attorney through these or other means does not create an attorney-client relationship. Establishing an attorney-client relationship depends on several factors, and we urge you to ask a DWGP attorney about such factors before conveying information that you regard as confidential. Communications to DWGP or a DWGP attorney prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship or otherwise verifying with a DWGP attorney that such communications may be held confidential may not be privileged or confidential and therefore may become subject to disclosure.
