Contacting us via this website does not create attorney–client privilege. Such communications are not necessarily secure or confidential. Merely initiating contact with an attorney does not create an attorney–client relationship.
This website constitutes Attorney Advertising and the choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements, and this disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Missouri. Past experience of an Attorney does not predict or guarantee future case outcomes as each case is factual unique.
No content on this site is intended to be misleading information. Statements of opinion should not be taken as factual assertions. We do not endorse unjustified expectations regarding case outcomes, or assert any otherwise unsubstantiated conclusions.
Any client testimonials and case outcomes found on or in connection with this site are non-typical. No two cases are identical, and results will always vary. No information on this site is intended to have potentially misleading effects.
As the filing of Mass Torts is a nationwide legal pursuit, many local rules are addressed.
Consistent with the laws of Nebraska, under Model Rule 7.1, we may “truthfully report” accomplishments regarding past cases but we dispel any notion that a particular outcome would be possible in any given case regardless of specific facts or circumstances. Similarly, under the Washington rules we herein offset the misleading effect of any statements containing unsubstantiated comparisons with the fees or services of other attorneys.
This site and all statements herein should not be taken to be any form of explicit statements that attorneys associated with skw4law.com, associate counsel, the firm, or referring firms are or constitute the “best” or are “better” than others with regard to outcomes, potential results, skill level, analysis of cases, or fees.
No attorney associated with skw4law.com represents that they are an “expert” or “specialist” in a particular practice area unless said attorney is certified as such by the relevant regulating body. Even then, neither this website, nor its proprietors, nor any associated attorney intends to represent themselves as a field specific practice expert.
"SKW" is Scott K. Walker, the Attorney responsible for this Website, who is licensed in Illinois and an attorney at Barton Walker, LLC, located at 5806 State Route 162, Glen Carbon, IL 62034.
Consistent with the Illinois rule, this attorney advertising website accordingly lists the name and address of Attorney Scott K. Walker [at the Barton Walker, LLC, 5806 State Route 162, Glen Carbon, IL 62034] as he is responsible for its content (Rule 7.2 (c)). Same is posted here, consistent with the Wyoming rule, as well. This compliance is consistent with Model Rule 7.2(c), and as such, is a standard that likely applies in some form in virtually every jurisdiction.
Clients may be responsible for litigation expenses and costs even when payment for our services is contingent upon the outcome of each client's case. Under the rules of several states, including Pennsylvania (Rule 7.2(h)(1)) and Texas (Rule 7.04(h)), this required disclaimer is included because of the availability of contingent fee. As always, cases vary in expense and value, and your experience may differ from that of other clients.
