Is this Legal Advice?

The purpose of this website is to discuss legal issues related to estate planning and elder law. Please do not consider anything you read on this site to be legal advice.

While William M. Gatesman stands ready in jurisdictions where he is licensed to practice law to consult with you and to provide you with legal advice should you need it, any such advice will be communicated to you outside of the context of this website.

Also, the information provided in our articles is general information and may not apply to your situation even if your situation seems similar to a situation discussed in the examples we present. You would do yourself a disservice if you were to rely on any of these articles and consider them to be legal advice pertaining to your particular situation.

Finally, to comply with the U.S. Treasury regulations, we must inform you that (i) any discussion of U.S. federal tax law or regulations contained on this website was not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, by any person for the purpose of avoiding U.S. federal tax penalties that may be imposed on such person and (ii) each taxpayer should seek advice from his or her tax advisor based on the taxpayer’s particular circumstances.
