The website, which is produced and operated by Neufeld Legal P.C., serves as a public resource for general legal and business information that is intended, but not promised or guaranteed, to be accurate, complete, and current. Without exception, this web site is not intended and shall not be considered to create a lawyer-client relationship with Christopher Neufeld and Neufeld Legal P.C.; nor should any individual rely upon any information provided herein.

Given the particularity of every legal matter, it is strongly recommended that you seek the appropriate lawyer, as opposed to rely upon the explanations set out in any website or webpage, given the generalistic nature of such work (which is unavoidable), as even the smallest and seemingly most innocuous difference in the situation or the parties involved in the particular scenario, can change the requirements, approach and outcome. 

Furthermore, any individual that forwards an e-mail to communicate with Christopher Neufeld and Neufeld Legal P.C. must realize that such a unilateral action, and any reply thereto, does not, in and of itself, create a lawyer-client relationship and that such individual can under no circumstance expect any confidentiality attaching to that communication and its contents.

Please take further note that we have neither the capacity nor the intention to represent any person who purports to seek legal representation based upon their viewing this web site in a jurisdiction where the website fails to comply with all laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction, or where we are personally precluded from practicing law.
