Disclaimer and Terms of Use

The material on this website is for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. The material is not guaranteed to be accurate, complete, or up-to-date and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. or any of its attorneys, staff, or clients. Each person’s legal needs are unique, and these materials may not be applicable to your legal situation. No person should act or rely on any information in this site without seeking the advice of an attorney. This information is not intended to substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney.

A preliminary communication made with us via the Internet, mail, phone or fax does not constitute an attorney-client relationship or provide any of the protections afforded by that relationship. Please be aware that the transmission of an email inquiry itself does not create an attorney-client relationship. Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. cannot serve as your counsel in any matter unless you and our firm expressly agree in writing that we serve as your attorney.

Please do not send us confidential or time-sensitive information until you have spoken with one of our attorneys or intake specialists. If you communicate with us through this site, or otherwise, in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you, it is possible that your communication may not be treated as privileged or confidential. If you communicate with us by email on a matter for which we already represent you, please remember that Internet email is not secure and you should avoid sending sensitive or confidential Internet email messages unless they are adequately encrypted.

You should also be aware that the Statute of Limitations (the deadline imposed by law within which you may bring a lawsuit) may severely limit the time remaining for you to file any potential claims you may have. 

To the extent that State Bar rules require us to designate a principal office and/or single attorney responsible for this site, Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. designates William P. Murray III as the attorney responsible for this site. He is located at 1 N. Dale Mabry Highway, Suite 800, Tampa, Florida 33609. Whereas some State Bar rules require us to disclose how our contingency fee is computed, under the current Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. contingency fee contracts, our contingency fee is deducted from the recovery before expenses.

Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. does not offer any guarantee of case results. The cases mentioned on this site are examples of the wide variety of matters the firm handles involving various areas of personal injury law. In some of the verdicts listed, plaintiffs either settled or obtained a modified award. These are merely intended to be illustrations, and it is important to note that past performance does not guarantee future results. Each case must stand on its own facts and circumstances.

This website may be considered advertising in some jurisdictions under the applicable law and ethical rules. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide to retain us, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience. Our attorneys do not wish to enter into a representation with anyone desiring representation based on viewing these materials in a state where this website fails to comply with the laws and professional responsibility rules of the state.
