… then again, paid legal advice all too often isn’t worth what you pay for it, either, so you might as well get it for free if you can. I hope you will find my comments here worth at least what you pay for them.
This blog contains my comments about general legal issues and responses to specific inquiries which pique my interest. It also contains links to my other blogs, where I comment on matters of general interest and post some original writing and photography. Speaking of which, the header photo of the tanker sailing across a foggy San Francisco skyline is one I took during a recent visit to Sausalito.
Legal fineprint: Any and all comments here are offered solely for the purpose of providing general information about legal issues and should not be considered specific legal advice intended to be relied upon by any reader (doesn’t that sound just like a lawyer?). If you have a legal problem and need specific legal advice about that problem, you should consult with (and pay) a lawyer for that specific legal advice. Even if my comments here address your legal problem, before acting on anything I say, you should still consult with (and pay) a lawyer for specific legal advice about your problem.
By the way, I reserve the right to pick and choose the subjects about which I will comment and the questions which I will answer, to control the content of this blog by deleting any post which I find objectionable or inappropriate for any reason and to edit, modify and/or delete anything I post at any time for any reason.
On the other hand, I will often speak plainly at the risk of offending you or someone else and if I do, will likely not apologize. Which is another way of saying, if you’re not going to like the answer, don’t ask the question.
James T. Reilly, Attorney at Law, California State Bar No. 67254
