    We don’t know whether we can represent you yet. We may already represent another party whose interests are adverse to yours. (For example, if you have a dispute with your neighbor, we may already represent your neighbor.) Because we don’t know if we can represent you, you should not disclose any confidential information to us. By submitting information to us, you agree that you will not disclose any confidential information to us and that we have no duty to keep the information that you disclose to us confidential.
