The site also has information so that folks wishing to contact us, can do so.
Any other use of this site is prohibited. By way of example, you should not use any features of this site that permit communications or postings, if any, to post, transmit, display, or otherwise communicate

SITE CONTENTS AND OWNERSHIP
The information contained on this site, including all images, designs, photographs, writings, graphs, data, and other materials (Materials) are the property of Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C. and/or Bradley Vauter, unless otherwise noted, and are protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights. Permission is granted to display, copy, distribute, download, and print portions of this site solely for the purposes of using this site for the authorized uses described above.
If you share information from the site, please note or credit the site so far as possible. You must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices on all copies of the Contents. You shall comply with all copyright laws worldwide in your use of this website and prevent unauthorized copying of the Contents. Except as provided in this Notice, neither Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C. nor Bradley Vauter grants you any express or implied right in or under any patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, or trade secret information.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY
You expressly agree that use of this website is at your sole risk. Neither Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C nor Bradley Vauter and any of their affiliates, or any of their officers, directors, employees, agents, third-party content providers, or licensors (collectively, “Providers”), or the like, warrant that this site will be uninterrupted or error-free; nor do they make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of this site, or as to the accuracy, completeness, reliability, security, or currency of the Materials.
These is a difference between legal information and legal advice in the eyes of most attorneys and legal pundits. Please understand and agree that nothing in this website makes you or any viewer or reader of the website a client of the firm or any of the individual attorneys. Agreements are required to establish an attorney client relationship, and mere use of this website, even calling or texting or emailing the firm, in and of itself, does not establish an attorney/client relationship. Legal advice must be specifically crafted after reviewing all information needed, discussion with a client, and legal advice is also tailored to an individual set of facts, and person, and laws in place at the time. Legal information is more broadly set out, and seldom if ever tailored in such a way that it becomes legal advice.
The Materials may contain errors, omissions, inaccuracies, or outdated information. While some areas of the law may seem set in stone, other areas of the law change often, because of new court decisions, rules or regulations or even new legislation. As such, be aware that even perfectly good information at one time, and still found on this website, might be dated after being posted.
This means that neither Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C. nor Bradley Vauter warrants the reliability of any statement or other information displayed or distributed through the site. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to correct any errors or omissions in any portion of the site, and to make any other changes to this site, the Materials and the products, programs, services, or prices (if any) described in this site at any time without notice.
THIS SITE AND THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, AND MATERIALS ON THIS SITE ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS,” “WHERE IS,” AND “WHERE AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE SITE, THE CONTENT, INFORMATION, OR THE MATERIALS ON THIS SITE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, BRADLEY VAUTER & ASSOCIATES, P.C and BRADLEY VAUTER BOTH EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND, WITH RESPECT TO ANY OF THE CONTENT, OR INFORMATION ON THIS SITE OR ANY SERVICES OFFERED, OR DISPLAYED ON THIS SITE OR YOUR USE OF THIS SITE GENERALLY, INCLUDING ACCURACY OF INFORMATION, QUALITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES
YOU AGREE THAT WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, OR EXPENSE OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM YOUR POSSESSION OR USE OF THE MATERIALS, CONTENT, OR INFORMATION ON THIS SITE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY IS BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C. and Bradley Vauter as well as any of our agents, employees, and licensors from and against any and all claims and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, arising out of or related in any way to your use of the site, violation of this Agreement, violation of any law or regulation, or violation of any proprietary or privacy right.
