Does anyone actually tell their lawyer they are participants in this forum? I think each and every time this website is provided to a lawyer, we have a chance at one perhaps contributing. Jeff could easily, in the background and privately, check the creds before confirming lawyer status. I'm not sure that would deal with their concerns re: potential liability.
If they are not hired by someone then would there be a liability issue? They would be on here offering advice from the limited facts that are presented on the board, they would be giving their opinion just like the rest of us. Maybe some sort of disclaimer stating that advice here isn't legal advice and the forum and members are not liable??
