De Lay & Laredo has a policy of entering into attorney-client relationships with clients only in accordance with specific procedures that include executing a written engagement letter and addressing potential or actual professional responsibility conflict as required by the State Bar of California. Transmission or receipt of information contained on this web site or a communication from or to De Lay & Laredo or its attorneys via the Internet or email does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship.

E-Mails or Other Communications from Non-Clients Will Not Be Treated as Privileged or Confidential
You may send De Lay & Laredo an email or other form of communication. However, if you communicate with us in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you, you should not send us confidential or sensitive information via email, or otherwise, because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential. Emails, faxes and other communications are regularly (and at times automatically) scanned to eliminate unsolicited promotions, advertisements and other unwanted communications (“spam”). This may result in deletion of a legitimate email or other communication before it is read by its intended recipient at our firm. Please let us know if you have concerns about this automatic filtering or if our filters are not accepting your communications.

Client Communication
If you communicate with De Lay & Laredo by email, fax or other means in connection with a matter for which we already represent you, you should note that the security of Internet email and other forms of electronic transmission is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential through electronic means, including email and fax, messages that are not encrypted, you accept the inherent risks of such uncertainty and must be aware that a lack of confidentiality may result.

If you have questions about a particular matter, please send a message directly to the attorney with whom you are working. All De Lay & Laredo attorneys are listed on the “Attorney Profiles” page. Although we regularly monitor e-mail and fax communication, please do not rely solely on email or fax to communicate urgent matters.

For any urgent matter please contact the lead attorney with whom you are working.
