Thank you for visiting the Cincinnati Bar Association website. The materials on this site are provided for informational purposes only and should not be considered legal advice. Your receipt or transmission of the information contained on this site does not create an attorney/client relationship and you should not act on this information without seeking advice from an attorney licensed in your state. This site is not intended to be advertising and our attorneys do not wish to enter into representation with anyone desiring representation based on viewing these materials in a state where this website fails to comply with the laws and professional responsibility rules of that state. Although we intend to provide up to date legal information, the information contained in this site may not reflect the most current legal developments. Should you chose to contact an attorney from this site (via electronic mail or other means of communication), do not disclose information you regard to be confidential until the attorney verifies that the firm does not represent other firms or entities involved in the matter and that the firm is willing to consider accepting representation. Any information transmitted before that time may not be held in confidence and may be intercepted by a third party. Unless specifically indicated otherwise in an individual attorney biography, the description of legal practice areas does not constitute certification in any legal specialty by any of the attorneys.
