We appreciate the fact that you have decided to visit our Web site. We have worked hard, and will continue to do so, to provide you with relevant information regarding different injury-related topics in Florida. You should be aware that this information, while useful, is just that – general information. It is not intended to serve as legal advice. The only way that we provide legal advice is when we consult with our clients, and the only way that someone can become a client of Bernstein & Maryanoff is to sign all of the necessary documentation including the contingency fee agreement.
You should feel free to submit an inquiry to our firm through any of the forms that appear on this Web site. For 30 years, the team at Bernstein & Maryanoff has worked diligently to respond to all valid inquiries regardless of how they arrived at our office. However, we are not obligated to respond to any inquiries; instead, we offer this free service so that people who may potentially become clients can ask initial questions regarding their situations and perhaps schedule a free initial consultation with one of our Florida injury attorneys. If you send us an inquiry that relates to an area of law that we do not practice, we may refer your inquiry to an attorney who does focus on those cases. It is also possible that we may not respond at all.
Once again, all initial consultations with Bernstein & Maryanoff are free of charge. However, simply scheduling that free initial consultation and/or completing that free initial consultation does not constitute the forming of an attorney-client relationship. That relationship only begins when a person and an attorney from our law firm sign a retainer agreement. At that point, the attorney-client relationship has been formed.
If we decide not to take on your case, Bernstein & Maryanoff hereby advises you to immediately contact another attorney. The statute of limitations may apply to your situation, and once that statute of limitations has run the law will bar you from bringing your claim forever, regardless of the facts or circumstances surrounding it.
The professionals at Bernstein & Maryanoff are Florida injury lawyers, and while some of our attorneys are licensed to practice in courts in different parts of the United States, we are not licensed to practice in every jurisdiction. If you visit our Web site from a jurisdiction where we are not licensed to practice law, you hereby acknowledge that this visit was merely coincidental and not intentional.

Solicitations from Vendors
The Florida injury lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff have built the firm’s reputation over 30 years by relentlessly focusing on the needs of our clients. We have neither the time nor the interest in speaking to vendors regarding lead generation, search engine placement or online advertising or any other promotion effort. As such, it is the policy of this law firm to not accept phone calls or emails from anyone soliciting these services.
If an advertising company or marketing company, or their employees or designees, contact our office without our express written permission prior to that initial contact, they hereby agree to pay Bernstein & Maryanoff $5,000.00 per email or phone call as a fee for the firm’s time in reviewing and/or responding to that initial contact. Payment shall be provided to the firm within 30 days after the initial email and/or phone call. The fee for each subsequent email or phone call shall be $10,000.00.
