The materials and information contained within the Service is of a general, informational nature but does not constitute legal or professional advice and should not be constituted as such. Use of the Service in any way, does not establish an attorney-client relationship.

Third-party Web Sites

This web site contains links to third party web sites for the convenience of our users. MGH does not endorse any of these third party sites and does not imply any association between MGH and those sites. MGH does not control these third party web sites and cannot represent that their policies and practices will be consistent with these Terms of Use.

These links are provided only as a convenience to the recipient.

State Laws Vary

MGH lawyers are licensed to practice law only within the states of Georgia, New York, Alabama, New Jersey, and South Carolina but we affiliate or form relationships with lawyers throughout the United States. MGH may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country, who form relationships with MGH, and are experienced in handling such cases. MGH may also undertake legal representation in certain cases, and will affiliate with other legal counsel located throughout the country to provide legal representation.

The laws of each State are different. This web site contains information about general or common rules that apply in some states. This web site also contains information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state or any particular state.

The Statute of Limitations is especially important. Every state has laws called the “statute of limitations” which set a deadline to file a lawsuit. That means that a lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries, Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other states may be longer or shorter. Insurance policies, particularly homeowners insurance, may require that suit be filed within one year of a loss. Some states allow claims against government agencies, but require a written notice very soon after the accident, perhaps within three months. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.

Legal and Ethical Requirements

MGH has tried to comply with all legal and ethical requirements in compiling this web site. We welcome comments about our compliance with the applicable rules and will update the site as warranted, upon learning of any new or different requirements. We only want to represent clients based on their review of this web site, if it complies with all legal or ethical requirements.

To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require us to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for this web site, MGH designates its office in Savannah, Georgia, United States, 33 Park of Commerce Blvd, and attorney Edward T. McAfee.

State Advertising Disclosures

Because some material on this web site constitutes lawyer advertising, and this web site may be viewed from anywhere in the United States, particular disclosures are required by the rules of some states. MM adopts and makes the following disclosures:

Alabama: No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.

Georgia: ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

New Jersey: ATTORNEY ADVERTISEMENT — NOT A REFERRAL SERVICE. Before making your choice of an attorney, you should give this matter careful thought. The selection of an attorney is an important decision.

South Carolina: ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

New York: ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Governing Laws in Case of Dispute; Jurisdiction
