No attorney-client relationship created by this website. Neither your receipt of information from this website nor your use of this website to contact this firm (“Lilly”), or any of its employees, creates an attorney-client relationship between you and Lilly. You will become Lilly’s client only by signing and returning the letter of engagement (“LOE”) provided to you by Lilly. The LOE will set forth Lilly’s engagement, the fee arrangement, and other relevant matters. Lilly accepts new clients only after investigating for possible conflicts of interest(s) (Lilly may already represent another party in your matter) and obtaining a signed engagement letter.
No confidentiality. You may not use this website to provide confidential information about a legal matter of yours to Lilly. Using or viewing this website does not make you Lilly’s client or even its prospective client. If you have confidential information you would like to give to Lilly, please communicate in person or by telephone–not by filling in a form on this website or by sending an unsolicited email to Lilly.
No legal advice intended. This website includes general information about legal issues and developments in the law, materials provided for informational purposes only. They may not reflect the most current legal developments and the information isn’t intended for use as legal advice. Legal advice requires a lawyer’s estimation and understanding of your particular particular set of facts or circumstances. For legal advice, contact a lawyer licensed in your jurisdiction.
No intent to refer matters to other firms. Lilly intends to act as primary counsel in representing its clients. Any particular subject matter which Lilly does not address in its practice will be identified on this site when Lilly intends to work with or refer clients to other firms for resolution of particular issues. See Louisiana Rule of Professional Conduct 7.9(c).
Photographs. All photographs on this website are of Lilly’s employees, unless otherwise noted. See Louisiana Rule of Professional Conduct 7.2(c)(1).
Cost of website. Lilly alone provided the funding for this website. No other lawyer or firm has contributed to the cost of its production. See Louisiana Rule of Professional Conduct 7.2(c)(11).
No guarantee of results. This site describes Lilly’s past cases, reports past results, details client interaction, and offers lawyer biographies. This information is provided only to familiarize users with Lilly’s background, activities, and experience. They are not intended as a guarantee that the same or similar results can be obtained in every matter undertaken. You must not assume that a similar result can be obtained in a legal matter of interest to you. The outcome of your matter can depend on a variety of factors—including specific factual and legal circumstances, the ability of opposing counsel, and, often, the judicial forum in which you find your dispute being resolved, and unexpected developments beyond the control of any client or lawyer.
No claim of expertise or board certification. This website lists Lilly’s practice areas. Attorneys should not claim to “specialize” in any area of the law unless they have been certified to do so by the State of Louisiana. The practice of law, not unlike medicine, has certain areas of “expertise,” “specialization” or “board certification.”Louisiana recognizes only the following “specializations”: Business and/or consumer bankruptcy, estate planning and administration, family law, and tax law. Unless otherwise indicated on this website or in a specific attorney’s biography, no claims of expertise, specialization, or board certification are made. See Louisiana Rule of Professional Conduct 7.2(c)(5).
