*Disclaimer about initial consultations: everything discussed during an initial consultation is and will remain privileged from discovery even if you choose not to retain Bill.  However, a mere consultation does not establish an attorney-client relationship between you and Bill.  Until and unless everyone signs an engagement agreement, Bill does not represent you as an attorney in any capacity.  Further, any opinions about your case that Bill gives you during the initial consultation are preliminary only, based on incomplete information and without the benefit of legal research, and should not be construed as “legal advice.”
