Terms of Use

Goldberg Segalla LLP values your privacy and the security of your personal information. These are the Terms of Use for our website (https://www.goldbergsegalla.com). By using this website and submitting personal information to us, you agree we may use such information in accordance with our policies.  Kindly do not submit any personal information that you do not want us to use in accordance with our policies.

By using this website, you specifically agree to be bound by these terms of use, our privacy policy, and our legal disclaimer. If you do not agree to be bound by the foregoing, you must discontinue using this website.

We have prepared this website and the materials contained herein for general informational purposes only. Information contained on this website does not constitute legal, accounting, tax, career or other professional advice of any kind. Our attorneys are licensed in state and federal courts across the United States and in the United Kingdom. We do not intend to advertise or solicit businesses in jurisdictions in which our attorneys are not licensed to practice law.

Our website allows users to send electronic mail communications to our attorneys. However, no attorney-client relationship is created by the transmission of information to, or receipt of information by, us. Any information sent to us through electronic mail communications will not be treated as confidential unless an attorney-client relationship exists. Accordingly, confidential information should not be sent to us without first contacting the firm and establishing an attorney-client relationship.

This website is not a substitute for retaining competent legal counsel. You should not act or refrain from acting on the information provided on this website without first seeking the advice of competent legal counsel in the state in which you may require legal services.

Links to other websites are for your convenience only. We do not take any responsibility for those websites, nor do we make any representation or warranty whatsoever with respect to those links to other websites.

The entire contents of this site are copyright protected and owned entirely by Goldberg Segalla, LLP.  In addition, certain articles or releases contained on this website are reprinted with permission as indicated therein.

We respect your privacy as our clients, friends, and visitors to this website. Since a different privacy and confidentiality standard is imposed by law for the information we provide to, and that is shared by, clients and former clients, this policy applies only to information we provide, and you share with us, through this website.

Our website does not collect any personally identifiable information from you unless you submit that information to us through the website. To serve you better, our website may collect non-personally identifiable information to monitor our website traffic and for statistical analysis purposes. However, we protect the confidentiality and security of this information. We do not sell any of this information.  Furthermore, we do not share any of this information with third parties other than those that host and/or administer our website, or as otherwise required by law.

We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time without advance notice. Any new Privacy Policy will apply only to information collected thereafter.
