I am not your lawyer!

I know the health care insurance world is in crisis. I know that because I teach seminars on debt collection and give speeches on ways to fix the health care system. But how I really know it is the pleas from desperate people I receive as a result of this blog. This blog is here to provide information. It is not a solicitation for clients. I now receive an average of twenty emails a week from people describing their specific situation and asking for legal advice. I also receive an average of three telephone calls a week from the truly brave or the truly desperate. These requests break my heart. But I can't respond to them. I am licensed to practice law in the states of Tennessee and Mississippi. I've passed the bar in Alabama, but due to geographical distance, no longer practice there. I am not licensed to practice law in any other state. The rules of my profession prevent me from giving advice on what to do in New York or California or any where else I am not licensed to practice. Additionally, I'm not your lawyer. You and I don't have an attorney client relationship. You haven't hired me, you haven't paid me and I haven't agreed to be your lawyer. Finally, I have an active practice with clients who are actually my clients. Tending to their needs and problems takes all the time I am willing to sacrifice away from my family. I will continue to update this blog and provide as much information as I can. But please understand, if I don't respond to your email and tell you what to do, it's not because I'm being rude or stuck up. It's because I'm not your lawyer.
