The determination of whether you need legal services and your choice of a lawyer are very important matters that should not be based solely on websites or advertisements. Bloggers on our behalf may be compensated for their time and services.
G. No Warranties or Liability.
A covered party (as defined below) shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and lost profits or savings) in any way due to, resulting from, or arising in connection with this website, including its content, regardless of any negligence of any covered party.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THIS WEBSITE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THIS WEBSITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS AND THE COVERED PARTIES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NONINFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES, TITLE, CUSTOM, TRADE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, SYSTEM INTERGATION, AND FREEDOM FROM COMPUTER VIRUSES.

“Covered party” means Wayne Wright LLP (including its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and other related entities), its listees, its partners, shareholders, co-counsels, and any officer, director, employee, subcontractor, attorney, agent, successor, or assign of Wayne Wright LLP.
I. You May Not Cause Harm to Us or Others.
You are strictly liable to us and others harmed by your actions, such as (without limitation) the submitting of viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, malicious code, or other technologies that could (or do) impact the operation of our website or any computer technology owned or operated by us or another.
J. Legal and Ethical Requirements.
The global marketplace is ever-changing and we try to keep up. In doing so, we have tried to comply with all legal and ethical requirements in compiling this website. We welcome comments about our compliance with any applicable rules. We do not want to represent clients based on their review of any portion of this website which does not comply with legal or ethical requirements. If any such requirements are overlooked on this website, it is unintentional. Generally speaking, as a baseline effort, we have endeavored to make this website primarily compliant with the laws of the State of Texas.
To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require us to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for this website, Wayne Wright LLP designates its office at 5707 W Interstate 10, San Antonio, Texas 78201 (USA), and its managing partner, Wayne Wright.
K. Laws Vary from Jurisdiction to Jurisdiction.
Our lawyers are licensed to practice law only within the states or jurisdictions of Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, but we affiliate or form relationships with lawyers throughout the United States and its territories. We may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country, who form relationships with us, and are experienced in handling such cases. We 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 and jurisdiction are different. This website contains information about general or common rules that apply in some states. This website may also contain factual information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. However, you cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your case, in your state or any particular jurisdiction.
L. Statutes of Limitation.
Every jurisdiction has laws which are referred to as statutes of limitation, which create a specific time deadline beyond which no claim or lawsuit may be pursued. These deadlines, or statutes of limitation, are especially important. This means that a lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries. In many cases claims or notices must be filed very soon following an injury to protect your rights. Only a competent lawyer with whom you have an attorney-client relationship should advise you on such matters. 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—if you are planning to do so.
M. State Advertising Disclosures.
The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisement. No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal service performed by other lawyers.
Contingent attorneys’ fees refer only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client at the settlement of the case. The percentage fee will be computed before expenses are deducted from the recovery in accordance with applicable law and rules regarding the professional conduct of attorneys.
Due to the fact that some material on this website constitutes lawyer advertising, and the fact that this website may be accessed from jurisdictions across the United States, particular disclosures may be required by the rules of some states. Accordingly, we make the following disclosures:
Alabama: No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
Colorado: Colorado does not certify attorneys as specialists in any field.
Florida: The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
Iowa: The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC: Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This notice is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
Kentucky: THIS IS AN ADVERTISEMENT. COURT COSTS AND CASE EXPENSES WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT.
Mississippi: The Mississippi Supreme Court advises that a decision on legal services is important and should not be based solely on advertisements.
Missouri: The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor the Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations. Past results afford no guarantee of future results and every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
Nevada: The State Bar of Nevada does not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert.
New Jersey: ATTORNEY ADVERTISEMENT – NOT A REFERRAL SERVICE. Before making your choice of an attorney, you should give this matter careful thought. The selection of an attorney is an important decision.
New Mexico: LAWYER ADVERTISEMENT.
New York: ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
North Carolina: The case outcomes contained within this website depend upon a variety of legal, factual, and circumstantial factors unique to each case. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome regardless of any similarities to any other legal matter. The cases mentioned on this website are illustrative only of the types of cases the firm handles and not all cases or outcomes are provided. The firm may associate with counsel external to the firm to assist with some cases.
Oregon: THIS IS AN ADVERTISEMENT.
Tennessee: None of the attorneys in this firm are certified as a Civil Trial, Criminal Trial, Business Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy, Creditor’s Rights, Medical Malpractice, Legal Malpractice, Accounting Malpractice, Estate Planning or Elder Law specialist by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization. Certification as a specialist in all other listed areas is not currently available in Tennessee.
Texas: Unless otherwise stated, our attorneys are not certified in any specialty area by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Past results afford no guarantee of future results and every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
Wyoming: The Wyoming State Bar does not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer’s credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise.
****We will review a case in any state or jurisdiction in which: i) any of our attorneys are licensed to practice; or, ii) we have a relationship with a locally licensed attorney.****
N. Lawyer’s Listings.
The information in the directory of lawyers on this website is provided by the listees, who are independently regulated by their professions. We do not control the content of such listing, which are provided by the listees. Accordingly, we cannot and do not warrant the validity of the information they provide and do not guarantee the quality of their work product. A description or indication of limitation of practice by a lawyer does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist or expert in any indicated field of law practice. Neither does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more competent than any other lawyer.
A. Information You Provide to Us.
We may ask you to provide us with certain categories of information, or you may otherwise provide us with information, through the websites such as: (1) personally identifiable information, which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally, such as your first and last name, e-mail address, home address and phone number (“Personal Information”); and (2) demographic information, such as information like your gender, your occupation or geographic information (“Demographic Information”).

Providing us with information about yourself is voluntary, but if you choose not to provide certain information you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website’s features.
Any information that you provide is not secure and is done on a non-confidential basis. We make reasonable effort to protect personal information submitted by users of this website, including through the use of firewalls and other security measures on our servers. However, because no server is 100% secure, you should strongly take this into account when providing information to us.
If you are interested in having us represent you, you should call us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. We will not make this determination by electronic communication. The telephone numbers for our office are listed in this website. We reserve the right to decline any representation. We may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with our other clients.
B. Information Gathered By Us.

- Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the websites. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your Device. HTML5 cookies are similar to Flash cookies but do not require a plug-in. Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies. For information on disabling Flash cookies go to www.adobe.com. Please be aware that if you disable or remove cookies, Flash cookies, or HTML5 cookies on your Device, some parts of our websites may not function properly, and that when you revisit our website your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
- Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “web beacons”, “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our website’s pages and messages.

- ETag, or entity tag. An ETag is a type of identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are similar to fingerprints, and they can be quickly compared to determine if two versions of a resource are the same or not. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash and/or HTML5 cookies.
We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:
- Targeting-Related. We may use Tracking Technologies to deliver content relevant to your interests on our website based upon how you interact with our content. This includes using Tracking Technologies to understand the usefulness to you of the content that has been delivered to you.
