Lenore F. Horton is an attorney licensed by New York, the District of Columbia, the US Supreme Court, and federal district court (SDNY). Ms. Horton also teaches law, publishes articles and other works that are at times unrelated to her law practice, owns and has ownership interests in businesses unrelated to the practice of law, and engages in advocacy work on human rights and humanitarian law issues. The term “LFH ESQ” is used to represent the Law Firm of Lenore F. Horton, Esq., as a sole practitioner, separate and apart from her other professional, business, educational, and advocacy interests. Occasionally, Ms. Horton uses regular support from licensed attorneys, under her direct supervision, in which case they are identified to existing & prospective clients and on this website. The terms “we,” “our” and “us” are used to refer to LFH ESQ, are employed out of convenience, and are not intended to suggest a partnership or association with other attorneys.

DISCLAIMERS

Attorney Advertising. In some jurisdictions, this website is considered attorney advertising governed by the professional rules of conduct for that jurisdiction. In light of this, LFH ESQ emphasizes that each client situation is unique, and prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome in your situation.

Information On Site Is Not Legal Advice. The information provided on this Site is for informational purposes only, to be construed in context with the method and manner in which it is presented. It is not legal advice or a substitute for legal counsel, and may not reflect the most up-to-date developments in the law.

No Attorney-Client Relationship. LFH ESQ is not a virtual law firm, or virtual law practice, as those terms have come to be used. LFH ESQ has one office location in New York, NY for meeting with clients in person, and does not retain clients without first speaking or meeting with the principals involved. You acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Site, particularly any interactive or communicative elements, is intended to create an attorney-client relationship with you and that no attorney-client relationship is formed based on your use of this Site.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither transmission of confidential information, nor our receipt of such information constitutes an agreement to establish an attorney-client relationship.

Risks of Submitting Information Online. Before submitting any information to LFH ESQ, you acknowledge that the Internet may be subject to breaches of security, and therefore information submitted through this Site may not be secure.

No Liability. LFH ESQ does not accept any liability for damages incurred by Site visitors and readers in reliance on or use of this information and material.
