From time to time, members of the public anonymously post their questions for attorneys on the Avvo.com and the LawGuru.com website. Gerry Elman of our firm has written answers to some of them, as follows.
For Gerry’s answers to other legal questions see also his:

Note: Gerry’s public answers to any such questions do not constitute legal advice, and his response to a publicly-posted question does not form an attorney-client relationship. We hope that these answers facilitate public understanding of the legal issues involved, but point out that such concise and off-the-cuff comments are not intended to be a complete explication of the pertinent law of any jurisdiction. Actionable legal advice should be obtained from an attorney practicing in the pertinent jurisdiction who is provided confidentially with all pertinent facts. For further explanation, view Gerry’s talk entitled Where’s My Free Legal Advice? presented July 16, 2009, at the World Technology Summit in New York City.
