CONTENT IS INFORMATION ONLY, NOT ADVICE
Thank you for visiting the web site of Crosner Legal, PC (“CL”). The information contained on the CL Web site is provided for educational and informational purposes only. The contents of this site are not and should not be construed as legal advice. The web site is not an offer to perform services on any matter. This website contains general information from a variety of sources and might not reflect current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. We do not undertake to update material in our web site to reflect subsequent legal or other developments.
NO RELATIONSHIP OR OBLIGATION ARISES FROM USE OF THE SITE
The law differs in every jurisdiction, and you should not rely on any opinion except that of an attorney you have retained, who has a professional duty to advise you after being fully informed of all the pertinent facts, and who is licensed in the applicable state, and is familiar with the applicable law. Internet subscribers and online readers should seek professional counsel about their legal rights and remedies. You should not act or refrain from acting on the basis of any information found this site. Any actions or decisions about your legal rights should be based on the particular facts and circumstances of your situation, and appropriate legal advice from.
CL expressly disclaims all liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based upon any information or other contents of this site. Viewing the CL site, or communicating with CL by Internet e-mail or through this site, does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship with anyone. The content and features on this site do not create, and are not intended to create, an attorney-client relationship, and shall not be construed as legal advice. This content and features of this web site, including means to submit a question or information, do not constitute an offer to represent you.
CONFIDENTIALITY IS NOT GUARANTEED
Any information sent to Crosner Legal, PC via Internet e-mail or through the website is not secure and is done on a non-confidential basis. CL respects the privacy of any person who contacts our firm, and we will make reasonable efforts to keep information private, but because of the nature of Internet communications and the absence of an attorney/client relationship, we cannot promise or guarantee confidentiality.
STATE LAWS VARY
CL lawyers are licensed to practice law only within the state of California but we affiliate or form relationships with lawyers throughout the United States. CL may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country, who form relationships with CL, and are experienced in handling such cases. CL may also undertake legal representation in certain cases, and will affiliate with other legal counsel located throughout the country to provide legal representation.
The laws of each State are different. This web site contains information about general or common rules that apply in some states. This web site also contains information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state or any particular state.
The Statute of Limitations is especially important. Every state has laws called the “statute of limitations” which set a deadline to file a lawsuit. That means that a lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries, Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other states may be longer or shorter. Insurance policies, particularly homeowners insurance, may require that suit be filed within one year of a loss. Some states allow claims against government agencies, but require a written notice very soon after the accident, perhaps within three months. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.
LEGAL AND ETHICAL REQUIREMENTS
CL has tried to comply with all legal and ethical requirements in compiling this web site. We welcome comments about our compliance with the applicable rules and will update the site as warranted, upon learning of any new or different requirements. We only want to represent clients based on their review of this web site, if it complies with all legal or ethical requirements.
To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require us to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for this web site, Crosner Legal, PC designates its office in Beverly Hills (Los Angeles County), California (USA), 433 N. Camden Drive, Ste. 400 Beverly Hills, CA 90210, and Attorney, Zachary Crosner.

CROSNER LEGAL CANNOT OFFER ANY GUARANTEES OF CASE RESULTS
Every legal matter is different. The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case, and no attorney can guarantee a positive result in any particular case.
