There are an endless number of ways to host a web site, and even more ways of designing one.  Selections of wallpaper, graphics, illustrations and photographs are huge and growing.

This advice is only met to get you started.  There are many good books, from Creating Killer Web Sites to the latest release at the corner bookstore.  Web page design is an art and a profession easily offering as much complexity and difficulty as mediation or other dispute resolution forms.

The hosting service I am providing is a labor of love.  I wanted to get people on the web who could not otherwise find a foothold.  While my hosting service provides 150 megabytes for my use, they may change their minds, they may go out of business (moving me to a smaller space provision) or I may get hit by a truck or go bankrupt.  Consider that in the month of the initial launch of this site, the original service provider disappeared and the site was taken over by another provider, on different terms.

I can't promise to keep this domain here forever.  I can't promise to make an unlimited amount of space available for free.

However, you can move your site at any time.  Hosting is available at $24.95 a month for a site almost everywhere.  At that price, if the site is useful to you, you can easily move and host yourself and hundreds of other mediator's pages too.  

Yes, the usual disclaimers apply.  (Guess I'm incurably an attorney).

Caveats and Warnings:

Deadlines are extremely important in most legal matters. You may lose important legal rights if you do not hire an attorney immediately to advise you with your legal needs. Many people, including many attorneys, do not check their e-mail daily, and some attorneys do not respond to unsolicited e-mail from non-clients. Unsolicited e-mail to me does not create an attorney-client relationship.

Do not rely exclusively on the internet to find an attorney. Very few attorneys have a presence on the Internet. You can miss some of the best attorneys available by limiting you search for an attorney to the Internet. The best way to select an attorney is to ask friends, relatives, co-workers, and other people that you trust for referrals to attorneys they have worked with. If you must search for attorneys on-line, you are no better off than if you were checking yellow pages listings. Just because something is on-line does not make it better or imply an special expertise. Yahoo is one of many places you may choose to search.

I do not provide free legal advice over the Internet. I am licensed to practice law only in the states of  Texas and Utah and am not active in the Utah State Bar. I cannot respond to inquiries regarding the law of other states. In addition, I currently limit my practice to narrow areas of focus and cannot respond to inquiries regarding  most legal issues.

Warning: Electronic mail is not confidential. You should never send confidential or sensitive information by electronic mail (or by voice mail, fax, or ordinary postal mail) except in the following circumstances:

  1. You have a pre-existing relationship with the person to whom you are sending the communication, and that person has a contractual or other legal obligation to keep the communication confidential; and

  2. You have taken all reasonable steps to ensure that the communication cannot be intercepted (for example, you have verified that only the intended recipient can read the email or listen to the voice mail) and, in the case of email, you have encrypted the email so that a third person who intercepts it cannot read it.

Do not provide any confidential information to someone by electronic mail or voice mail if you are not certain that the person receiving it will maintain the information as confidential. Do not post confidential information in a message sent to an internet/usenet "newsgroup," or to an internet "mailing list" or "discussion group" or any "listserv."

For example, if you are seeking legal advice and you send email to an attorney whom you have not already retained, you may later discover that this attorney represents someone else in the same case, and the attorney has a duty to disclose your information to that client. Although communications between an attorney and client are confidential, your communication is not confidential if you are not the attorney's client or if your communication is made in a setting where others are likely to receive it.

You should recognize that electronic mail may be stored and forwarded through several computer systems, and it is possible that someone may (illegally) read your email and disclose it to someone.

Any e-mail sent to me is sent with a waiver of confidentiality and a waiver of privacy.  You do not become my client by sending me e-mail and I can not agree to keep any e-mail sent me confidential.

Finally, nothing on this site is intended to function as legal advice or to establish an attorney-client relationship with anyone.  All of the material on this site is intended for the use of professionals who will realize that the law changes and that positions and conclusions, especially those of an editorial nature, drawn in the past may not be the law as it is now or as it will likely be.  All claims against the author of this site are subject to binding arbitration at the discretion and terms set by the author under the Federal Arbitration statutes.

Further, a performance copyright is retained as to any and all actions that may be taken based on material on this site.

By offering hosting on this site, I am not vouching for any person, corporation or other entity that posts a page here. Caveat Emptor applies even more strongly to an internet site than any other place.  Further, by hosting sites, I am not assuming the obligation to continue to host same or to moderate or control them in any way.

If you want to make a donation, feel free to make one.  I always appreciate good will, used books, and kind thoughts.
