Disclosures and Disclaimers – May 18, 2020

Additional Disclaimers:

I am not an attorney and any comments I post are not intended, nor should they be construed, as legal advice. If you need legal advice, please consult a legal expert who is familiar with the area of legal expertise you need.

I am not a medical health professional and any comments I post are not intended, nor should they be construed, as medical advice. If you believe you are experiencing a medical emergency, dial 911 (where applicable) or contact proper emergency service personnel.

I am not a PRO and any comments I post are not intended, nor should they be construed, as professional advice. If you believe you need a professional, consult a professional in the area of expertise you need advice. For example, for plumbing, find a plumbing professional.

You may notice I use one or more of the above disclaimers on a somewhat regular basis.

I do this for a reason. Any legal, medical, or professional comments I make are my personal experiences in those areas and not meant to be taken as advice from a professional in any of those areas.

On Facebook, Quora, and other sites, I regularly see people asking for legal, medical, and other professional advice. Worse, I see people asking how to break the law or people encouraged to break the law.

In the U. S., each state has laws specifically for things like divorce, recording phone calls, installation of tracking devices on vehicles or phones, DNA testing do’s and don’ts, etc. There may be federal laws that could apply as well.

I also see a bunch of fake experts on some of those sites. They claim they are doctors, lawyers, law enforcement, military, etc. or used to be. The true experts tend to use similar language as I use. With the additional disclaimer they are not representing you and there is no client/professional relationship between you and them. If I don’t a disclaimer of some sort, I immediately question if they are an expert. Even more so if they are giving advice on how to engage in illegal activities.
