Please Read This Important Disclaimer (because It Has Legal Consequences)

I am no longer in the private practice of law and cannot represent you or otherwise provide legal services to you.

Lists of resources on this web site, articles written by me and available on or from this site, and this web site itself are intended and offered only for educational and informational uses. NOTHING CONTAINED ANYWHERE HEREIN IS OFFERED AS OR CONSTITUTES LEGAL ADVICE. No representations are made about the accuracy of the information contained in any page on this site or referred to from this site,  and, while I plan to do a good job, I do not promise or guarantee that anything contained herein is correct, complete or up-to-date. Users of the site should be aware that articles published on this site were written prior to posting on this site and the information in them may not be current. NO ONE SHOULD RELY ON THIS SITE, ARTICLES ON OR REFERRED TO FROM THIS SITE, OR INFORMATION CONTAINED IN ANY OF THE LINKS ON THIS SITE WITHOUT FIRST SEEKING APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL ADVICE.


NO ONE SHOULD CHOOSE A LAWYER ON THE SOLE BASIS OF A WEB SITE. That said, this web site is not in any way intended to be an advertisement or solicitation for legal services. COMMERCIAL SOLICITATIONS, HOWEVER, ARE PERMITTED BY THE MISSOURI RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT BUT ARE NEITHER SUBMITTED TO NOR APPROVED BY THE MISSOURI BAR OR THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI .

Important Disclaimer about Legal Representation . I AM NO LONGER IN THE PRIVATE PRACTICE OF LAW. THE SIMPLE ACTS OF USING THIS WEB SITE AND SENDING ME AN E-MAIL FROM THIS SITE ABOUT ANY POTENTIAL LEGAL ISSUE SHALL NOT IN ANY WAY BE CONSTRUED TO MEAN THAT YOU HAVE EMPLOYED ME FOR LEGAL SERVICES. Any communication to me, in any form and to any e-mail address, should not contain specific factual information that you want to keep confidential. IMPORTANT: I RESERVE THE RIGHT NOT TO RESPOND TO YOUR E-MAIL MESSAGE AND I SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR FAILING TO RESPOND TO AN E-MAIL THAT IS GENERATED FROM THIS SITE. I will not give legal advice in response to such an e-mail, but if I can provide general information or point you to a resource, I will often try to do so. If you want legal advice, your best first step is to consult an appropriate attorney in your jurisdiction.

Privacy Policy . It is my policy not to disclose any personally identifiable information which may be collected on this site to any third parties without the permission of the person from whom such information is gathered, unless there are compelling reasons, such as compliance with legal process, to do so. The only contemplated uses of any information gathered on this site are to use aggregate statistics on site usage and traffic, to send e-mails relating to changes or additions to the site, to respond to queries or to use e-mail addresses gathered from e-mail requests as a seed list for solicitation for newsletters or other projects related to this site. It is my hope in each such case that I will use this information to improve your experience on this site or to otherwise provide you with some benefit. I don’t like web sites that collect my e-mail address and send me lots of unsolicited e-mails, so I want to treat you as I would like to be treated. If any such contacts seems intrusive to you, you should contact me.

The only information that I know of that is gathered automatically is browser information of the standard kind which is then used in aggregate fashion to provide me with traffic statistics from my web host. Because this site is hosted by a third party, there may be accessibilty to information by my host or its agents of which I am not aware. My right to change or delete any such information may be limited or non-existent, but I will make reasonable efforts to accommodate such requests.

Obviously, e-mails to me may disclose much more personal information, presumably with your permission, but I, again, except as I describe above, do not share this information with third parties without your permission, although I may use this information in the manner set forth above.

No portion of this site is directed toward children under the age of 18 . Any person under the age of 18 who wishes to provided any form of personally indentifiable information must do so only after express parental consent has been provided to me in a manner that meets then-current FTC guidleines to ensure that I in fact have the permission of the parent. No personally identifiable information about a child will ever be knowingly collected or disclosed to third parties if I know that such information is from a child.

I rely on the host of this site to provide adequate security with respect to privacy.

Similarly, there are many links on this site to third party sites. It is hard enough to keep this links current, let alone make any representation about or be responsible for their privacy policies. Suffice it to say that you will need to be aware that privacy policies may change as you move from site to site on the Internet. This site currently does not carry banner advertising, with the technical exception of the Book Store, which is an Amazon.com affiliate.

If you believe this site has collected personally identifiable information that is inaccurate and that you want to change or such information that you want to have deleted, or if you have questions about this policy, please e-mail Send e-mail to Dennis Kennedy at [email protected] .
