If you call Tipping The Scales Of Justice and ask a question, you are NOT establishing an attorney/client relationship. This show is designed to be a public service where general legal questions can be answered. You may be asked specific questions so that the attorneys can better answer your question, but that does not mean they have become your attorney. Please be mindful that we are trying to get to as many callers as possible, so please limit yourself to one question per call. If the attorneys don't know an answer - they aren't going to fake their way through it. The attorneys are going to tell you if they are unsure, and then they are going to find the answer. As professionals, they have reference materials available but might have to find the answers off air and then provide the information later in the show. If you hear us say that we should talk off air - take the hint that there is something either too specific or too juicy to tie up the airwaves. They will get your contact information off air and follow up at a later date.
