3.  Materials are NOT Legal Advice or Legal Opinions

All material located on the Sites, in podcasts, blogs and social media forums is prepared for a general audience for general informational purposes only.  It is not legal advice or a legal opinion.  Its sole purpose is to better educate you about a variety of general legal issues so that you become more educated consumers of legal services.  While Gordon Feinblatt tries to provide accurate information on the Sites, the law changes quickly.  Therefore information contained on the Sites may not reflect the most current interpretation or be complete.  Many factors go into the decision-making process of selecting a lawyer and everyone’s needs differ.  Moreover, although the specific facts of your matter may seem similar to those of others, they are actually quite different;  the law may apply differently or not at all to your situation.  Therefore, you should not rely upon or take any action with respect to your specific, personal legal matters based on information contained on the Sites.  The Sites are provided “AS IS” and Gordon Feinblatt is not responsible for any action you do or do not take in reliance on any materials on the Sites.   Information provided on the Sites should never be a substitute for consulting with a lawyer.

4.  No Attorney-Client Relationship

You may email or otherwise contact Gordon Feinblatt through the Sites. You may also communicate with Gordon Feinblatt, its lawyers or other personnel through its blogs, or social media forums such as Facebook and Twitter.  These and similar communications DO NOT create an attorney-client relationship between you and Gordon Feinblatt. You are NOT a Gordon Feinblatt client unless and until Gordon Feinblatt has conducted a detailed investigation of the facts of the specific matter, satisfies itself that no conflict of interest exists AND has entered into a written agreement with you.  The Sites and any communications through the Sites or other electronic means neither create, nor are they intended as an invitation to create, an attorney-client relationship between you and Gordon Feinblatt or any of its lawyers. 

5. Licensure. Although this website is accessible throughout the United States as well as globally, most Gordon Feinblatt attorneys practice law primarily in the mid-Atlantic region in general and Maryland in particular. Our attorneys are only authorized to practice law in those states in which they have gained admission, subject to limited exceptions. Professional counsel in the applicable state or jurisdiction should be sought to address specific questions or situations.

6.  No Confidentiality or Attorney-Client Privilege

Confidentiality. Gordon Feinblatt safeguards the confidentiality of, and does not disclose, information about existing clients or their legal matters. Please understand that any information sent to us through any means by anyone who is not an existing client is not confidential or privileged and may not be returned to you. Neither the internet nor email is secure means of transmitting material. Therefore website visitors and existing clients should never send personal or confidential materials through the website or via email; such transmissions are at your own risk. Gordon Feinblatt disclaims any liability for disclosure, whether inadvertent or intentional, unauthorized use and any other damages arising out of transmissions through the internet, this website or via email.

The internet is an open medium and no data transmission through it is private or secure.  You should not discuss confidential matters or post confidential photos or other material on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter, on any blogs accessible through the Sites or in any email or other electronic communication.  All discussions and posts are open to the public.  Attorney-client privilege does NOT apply to, and Gordon Feinblatt is not responsible for, any information or materials you disclose.  Gordon Feinblatt may treat anything you provide as non-confidential and public.  You transmit confidential information at your own risk.  That said, if you do provide your name, physical and/or email address, telephone number(s) and other contact information, Gordon Feinblatt will not sell your information to any third party.  Gordon Feinblatt will use and disclose that information as required by law or when it believes in good faith that the law requires it, to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, manage the Sites and send you newsletters and other communications.  By providing this information, you expressly agree that Gordon Feinblatt may communicate with you as provided in these Terms of Use.  You may opt out of receiving future communications from Gordon Feinblatt at any time.  You may also request to see any information about you that Gordon Feinblatt or its service providers may have stored and you may request that any of this information be deleted.

7.  Case Summaries;Testimonials

The Sites may include statements by existing and former clients expressing their feelings about the legal services provided to them.  The testimonials express the honest, unedited opinions of actual clients who have not received anything of value in exchange for their comments.  The results cited in the testimonials are those of actual cases handled by Gordon Feinblatt lawyers.  However, results are for informational purposes only;  you should not draw comparisons between your circumstances and those in the testimonials.  Although your case may be similar to a success story on the Sites, many factors go into evaluating and ultimately obtaining a successful result.  Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case.  Every case is different.   Therefore it is essential that you understand that past results are not indicative of what an attorney can do for you with respect to your particular case.  The fact that a certain result was received in one client’s case cannot and does not guarantee or predict a similar outcome with respect to any other matters. 

8. Advertising; Solicitation. Nothing in this website shall be deemed a solicitation or the provision of legal advice or a legal opinion. Our website may provide information on results achieved in certain legal matters. Everyone’s particular legal situation is different. The facts and other circumstances of one matter, while similar to yours, should not be taken to mean that similar results would be achieved in your case. Prior results achieved in one matter do not predict or guarantee a similar outcome in subsequent cases. This website may constitute a communication, solicitation or advertising under the professional rules governing attorney conduct in certain states in which some of our attorneys may be licensed to practice law. Please understand that you should never base a decision to engage us to provide you with legal services on anything contained on this website or any other advertisement.

Gordon Feinblatt does NOT intend the Sites to be a solicitation for legal services, however,  the Sites may constitute advertising under the rules of other states.  Please do not base a decision to retain the legal services of any Gordon Feinblatt lawyer solely upon the Sites or advertisements of any kind. In Virginia, Lawyer Justin Katz is responsible for any content that may be construed as advertising material by the rules of that state.

9.  Unauthorized Practice of Law

Although the Sites may be viewed throughout the United States of America, its territories and globally, Gordon Feinblatt attorneys are admitted to practice only in the jurisdictions listed on their individual biographies.  Gordon Feinblatt does not practice law, solicit, target or advertise for legal employment in any jurisdiction other than those in which its attorneys are licensed or in which they are otherwise permitted to practice by applicable rules.  The listing of an area of practice or focus by Gordon Feinblatt attorneys does not indicate any certification or specialization.  If the rules of the state bar in your jurisdiction require that Gordon Feinblatt identify an attorney and office responsible for the Sites, Gordon Feinblatt has designated Michael C. Powell, general counsel, located at 233 East Redwood Street,Baltimore,Maryland21202, as the responsible attorney and office.

I highly recommend Mr. Katz and his staff. They were friendly, compassionate and really showed they had their clients best interest at heart. There was never a time you called them they didn't respond or returned your calls and answer your questions.They took the worry, and stress and turn it into reassurance. They were diligent and just down right professional. My wife and I really thank God for allowing us to cross paths on a professional business experience. Ms. Rebecca Slatery is the most courteous, compassionate soul. We wish you all peace, love and blessings. Thank you for your service.

I was referred to Gordon & feindblatt in 2014 when my family was in an accident, Mr. Katz personally consulted with me by phone and he was very polite and professional, Mr. Carpuso, one of the litigation attorneys even came out to our home and went over our case with us, he made sure all of our needs was addressed and before he left our home that day I felt like we were old friends. that case was settled and I was very pleased, I have used this law firm twice since then and the results are always the same, I have nothing but great experiences with Gordon & Feindblatt the staff are courteous and professional and they get the job done but the one in particular that really stood out for me is Rebecca Slattery, she is truly a gem, she is so compassionate, she walked me through the entire process, she even checked up on me from time to time just to see how I was feeling and I really appreciated her kindness. I will use this law firm again and again for any future legal issue that may arise and I would highly recommend Gordon & Fiendblatt to friends, family and co-workers.

The lawyer who was initially handling my case parted ways with the company and I was assigned a new lawyer. This new lawyer was amazing! Christina Franetovich made me feel secure by double checking all the facts and notes in my case so that I was not worried during this transition. I was on disability from an a different accident while she was finalizing my case, and I had called and hounded her about the time frame of my settlement very frequently to the point that I felt guilty for calling so much. Christina was very sympathetic to my situation and assured me that she would do everything in her power to make sure the situation would be resolved quickly. She actually finalized my case before the time frame she had given me, was always very courteous and knowledgable on the phone, and I feel extremely lucky that she ended up handling my case because the previous lawyer was not as amazing with customer service as Christina. She also has a way of making you feel comfortable and builds incredible rapport quickly. I am going to highly recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Christina!!!

On Feb 23, 2017 I was in a bad accident on the JFX. I had been rear end by another driver. Almost immediately I felt pressured by the other drivers insurance. Everything from wanting a recorded statement; to failing to acknowledge responsibility. No one would answer my questions, nor would anyone take responsibility. I was frustrated and overwhelmed with everyone from the towing company, to the repair shop, to the insurance company nightmare I just entered. I reached out to Attorney Robert Katz and I was assured they were here to help. He provided with some much needed information, and told me not to worry, Sarah his Paralegal would be in touch to help get things moving. Sarah reached out as expected and explained their process and walked me through what my expectations would be. She as well assured me they were here to help me navigate the obstacles. What Sarah really did was so much more than help. She took the stress and burden off my shoulders and assumed ownership for handling everything on my behalf. I knew what to expect, and I received regular updates throughout the entire process. Honestly, I received so much more than I anticipated. Some of the most frustrating items to chase after are medical records and hospital charges. While I was trying to recall events and timelines, she had already obtained my records and information. She made this process so painless. I truly cannot say enough about the exceptional service she provided. Many thanks for all your help. Sincerely, Richard Hose

My husband and I were in a car accident in August 2017. We contacted Bob Katz team for legal representation in our case. Kristen A. Turner was our paralegal and she was excellent. It took 9 months for us to receive our settlement and Kristen kept us updated throughout this entire process. She was very kind and patient as I happened to have several questions. She always answered my questions promptly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend this firm and Kristen if you are in need of legal assistance.
