NOTICE: If you are contacting Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel LLP or one of its lawyers regarding a possible representation, e-mail is not the recommended way to engage an attorney. The sending or receipt of an e-mail does not create an attorney-client relationship. To obtain legal counsel or legal services from Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel LLP, you must first establish an attorney-client relationship with the firm. Until you have gone through the firm’s intake process and receive an engagement letter from a Goodsill attorney, you have not become a client of the firm. The best way to inquire about a possible new representation is to call (808) 547-5600. You will be put in touch with an attorney who can determine that there is no conflict of interest and that the firm is willing and otherwise able to accept your engagement. If a determination is made to accept the engagement, you will receive an engagement letter. You are not a client unless and until you receive an engagement letter.

Please do not send us any information or documents before you have received an engagement letter. Any information or documents sent prior to your receipt of an engagement letter cannot be treated as private, confidential or otherwise protected, and we may be able to represent a party adverse to you even if the information you submit to us could be used against you.
