Terms and Conditions
Note: please read all of this information very carefully; it’s very important.
Disclaimer of Website Information
The information provided on this website is extremely general and is offered purely for informational purposes. It is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Nothing on this website should be relied upon as legal advice and is not a substitution for proper legal advice.
We do not promise or guarantee that the information is correct, complete or up-to-date, and no one should act based upon this information without seeking a legal advice from a qualified attorney.
The transmission of information from this or any website or social media account under the control of RM Warner, PLC is not intended to create, and its receipt does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship with RM Warner, PLC or any of its attorneys.
Eighteen Years of Age Requirement
If you are under the age of eighteen, please do not contact us or provide us with any information. While we understand that people under the age of eighteen may need legal representation, please have your parent or guardian contact us on your behalf.
Formation of Attorney-Client Relationship
No attorney-client relationship is formed until the firm has expressly agreed to represent you in writing, and you have received written confirmation of that fact from an authorized agent of the firm. The fact that the firm has simply agreed to do an initial consultation is not the same thing as agreeing to represent you. The firm’s agreement to represent you may only be provided to you in writing.
Written Payment Terms and Fee Agreements
All litigation matters require a signed fee agreement and are considered binding legal contracts. Although the firm does not require signed fee agreements for pre-litigation matters or transactional matters, clients are provided with invoices that contain standard payment terms before any work is performed. We will not begin working on any case until payment of the required fee is received (with the only limited exception being a contingent fee case). By making payment, you are agreeing to be bound by the payment terms contained in the applicable invoice. If someone at the firm has agreed to perform legal work for you without sending you written confirmation of the same and/or without receiving payment, please ask to speak with one of the firm’s partners immediately.
No Guarantees –EVER!
No attorney, agent or employee will ever guarantee or promise you anything – especially results. Other than trying to do our best, we simply can’t promise or guarantee anything because we cannot control third parties, including large companies like Google, judges, or juries. If you think an attorney, agent or employee has promised you something or guaranteed a particular result or outcome, please notify the person who made this promise to you in writing immediately and ask the person to have one of the partners at the firm contact you. To ensure that this is beyond clear, we have gone out of our way to put this on our website, as well as in our fee agreements, etc.
RM Warner, PLC is based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, and the firm’s attorneys are licensed to practice law in Arizona only, unless specifically noted under a specific attorney’s website profile. However, given the Internet, we are a global society today, without borders. And to the extent, if it becomes necessary to have local counsel in your area assist us, we have formed relationships with many firms in many different states and countries.

In the event of any dispute between you and RM Warner, PLC, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party, as part of the prevailing party’s costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees, the amount of which shall be made a part of any award or judgment rendered.
