Site Intended for General Information Only. Farmers’ Legal Action Group, Inc. (FLAG) offers this website for general information purposes only. The information on this site is not legal advice. Proper legal advice depends on the specific circumstances of each situation. Also, because the law may be different from state to state, some information on this website may not be correct for your area. Finally, although FLAG attempts to keep the information on this website current, we cannot guarantee that it is up to date. Therefore, the information contained on this website cannot take the place of individualized advice from a competent attorney licensed in your state.

Emailing FLAG Does Not Make Us Your Lawyer. Transmitting an email message to FLAG through this website does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and FLAG or any individual FLAG attorney. FLAG CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL RESPOND TO UNSOLICITED EMAILS FROM NON-CLIENTS. Due to technical problems, absences, or full workloads, it is possible that email to FLAG or a FLAG attorney would go unread for some time. Because deadlines are extremely important in most legal matters, you may lose important legal rights if you do not immediately and directly secure an attorney to advise you. It is also important to remember that any email you send to FLAG may not be protected by the attorney-client privilege, and unless your email is encrypted, it may be intercepted by persons other than the intended recipient.

Linked Sites Not Necessarily Endorsed by FLAG. This website contains links to other sites on the Internet. Those links are provided only to help you identify and locate other Internet resources that may be of interest to you. By providing the links, we do not intend to imply that FLAG sponsors or is associated with the persons or entities who created the linked sites.
