[Disclaimer: Please note that the legal hotline does not provide legal advice; it is a place to obtain legal information and education about an issue.  In order to to remain consistent with our tax-exempt status, the WBA cannot provide you with legal advice, and information obtained through the hotline should not be relied on as such (this service does not extend to drafting a legal document or negotiating a matter for a member).  Analyzing legal rights requires a complete analysis of the law, and the application of the law to a particular set of facts.  The legal hotline system is not designed or intended to fully analyze all relevant facts in any particular circumstance.  Private legal counsel should be consulted if legal advice is needed.  However, by helping members avoid legal problems with information and research, this service has the potential to save members literally thousands of dollars.]
