Terms and Conditions of Using the CTLA Member Directory
The Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) is a professional legal association. CTLA is not a law firm. As a professional legal association, CTLA has individual lawyers as members. The fact that a lawyer is a member of CTLA does not mean or imply that the lawyer is affiliated with any other CTLA member for the practice of law.
Although CTLA members welcome your telephone calls letters or e-mail messages, please keep in mind that merely contacting a CTLA member does not establish an attorney-client relationship between you and the CTLA member. Consequently, you should not convey any confidential information to a CTLA member until you and the CTLA member have established an attorney-client relationship.
The listing of any area of practice by an CTLA member does not indicate any certification or expertise therein, nor does it represent that the quality of legal services to be performed would be greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. It is merely an indication by the member of an area or areas in which he or she practices. Membership in CTLA or any office of CTLA as well as membership in a Section does not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or an expert in a field of law. CTLA membership does not indicate anything about the quality or competency of any lawyer. 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, nor does it mean that such 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.
