NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP, UNLESS:
The information presented in this website, or in any legal educational materials, informational materials, or in any introductory written communication from the law firm of Kenneth B. Lerman, P. C. is general in nature and is not intended, and is not authorized to be construed, as legal advice for a particular case, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Neither legal representation nor an attorney-client relationship is or may be established until this firm is retained under a written engagement and retainer agreement signed by both this firm and by you as the intended client. Until then, this firm is not representing you and is not doing anything to protect your legal rights. If you believe that you have suffered a legal wrong, you must take legal action and commence the appropriate legal proceedings; you must start such action before any applicable statute of limitations expire, otherwise your right to do so may be lost forever.
WIRE FRAUD ALERT:
Any e-mail or writing appearing to be from the law firm of Kenneth B. Lerman, P. C. which requests a wire or other transfer of funds to any party, must be double verified. The request and any corresponding instructions must be confirmed personally via telephone with attorney Lerman before the initiation of any wire or other transfer; only call this firm’s established telephone number, and verify you are speaking with only attorney Lerman. It is the responsibility of any person wiring funds to evaluate and verify that the recipient is the intended and lawful recipient. Hackers are targeting e-mails, websites, and communications of law firms and other businesses in attempts to initiate fraudulent wire or other transfer requests. CONFIRM BY CALLING THE ORIGINATOR OF THE EMAIL, USING PREVIOUSLY KNOWN CONTACT INFORMATION, PRIOR TO WIRING OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRING FUNDS.

Lerman, P.C. or its principal for any loss or damage arising in any way from its use.
