The information on this Website may be considered an advertisement in states where it is authorized, and this Website also offers general legal information. This Website is not intended for the purpose of providing legal advice and you should not rely on this information for such purposes. If you want legal advice you should contact an attorney directly. This Website is not intended in any way to form an attorney-client relationship as such a relationship can only be formed after both a consultation with one of our attorneys or referral attorneys and your signature on a contract. The laws are different from state to state and no general information that d’Oliveira can provide will necessarily be applicable to your circumstance.
We cannot, and do not, represent clients in states or jurisdictions in which we are not licensed.

You should not rely on any of the information on this Website and should consult with an attorney regarding your case.
Submitting any information through this Website does not mean that we will represent you. Because providing information to us does not form an attorney-client relationship you should be aware that each state imposes strict deadlines (known as the statute of limitations) for filing claims. Therefore, if a claim is not filed before the applicable statute of limitations expires, you may be forever prevented from bringing that claim. Because we do not represent you, we cannot advise you as to the exact day on which your right to file a claim will expire. You should contact us to determine if your matter is one we, or one of our referral attorneys, are willing to accept. Contact information is provided on this Website.
Please be advised that you should consult with your doctor before making any medical decisions based on any information on this Website or any blogs or videos provided on this Website.
