Please note that I cannot assure you that your communication to me will reach me or not be read or processed by persons beyond my control or be treated for all purposes as confidential or privileged. Communications through the internet or e-mail may be intercepted, diverted and pass through various sites, servers and processes beyond my control. I cannot assume responsibility that your communication will be received or responded to within any particular time frame, or at all. The communications passing between us will not act as a retainer for professional services in any event. In the event you wish to retain my services, I will send you an engagement letter by return e-mail which will act as a formal retainer agreement pending funding. This engagement letter will set out my understanding of the matters at issue, our mutual obligations to one another and our mutual expectations. I will also require a deposit. The amount of the deposit (monetary retainer) will depend upon the services contemplated. I accept e-transfers, wire transfers, VISA and MasterCard. Please note that the Law Society of Ontario requires me to verify the identity of new clients. This process must be complied with, without exception, prior to any services being provided.
