Legal Terms

Thank you for visiting this website. It was created so that you could learn more about the legal services that I offer. This website is only for informational purposes. None of the information on this website is intended to constitute, nor does it constitute, legal advice. Please read the legal terms below.

This website may constitute attorney advertising under the ethical rules of certain jurisdictions. A decision on legal services is important and should not be based solely on websites or other advertisements. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer’s credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. 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. Results in prior matters do not guarantee results that may be achieved in future matters. Results always depend upon a variety of factors unique to each representation.

This website does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and me. An attorney-client relationship with me cannot be formed by reading the information on this website, by calling me, or by sending me an e-mail. The only way to become my client is through a mutual agreement in a formal written letter.

I am licensed to practice law in the States of Minnesota and District of Columbia, USA. Nothing on this website should be construed as an indication that I am qualified to practice law or provide legal advice in any other jurisdiction or country. For example, I do not have a Finnish law degree and cannot provide advice on Finnish law.


I’ve made privacy easy for you on this website. I do not collect any information on visitors to this website. There are no cookies, web beacons or similar tracking technologies. I don’t collect any user analytics.

Memberships in legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. I do not claim “expert” or “specialist” status in any area of law and you should know that many states in the USA expressly do not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert.

None of the information on this website necessarily reflects my legal opinions. The information is not guaranteed to be correct, complete, or current. I make no warranty, express or implied, about the accuracy or reliability of the information on this website.

All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of me.

Any information that you send me in an e-mail message might not be confidential or privileged, and sending me an e-mail message will not make you my client. Also, due to the nature of the Internet, I cannot guarantee that any e-mail you send me will be successfully delivered or secure.  If you are interested in having me represent you, I must first determine whether the matter is one for which I am willing or able to accept professional responsibility. I will not make this determination by e-mail communication. I reserve the right to decline any representation. I may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with my other clients.

To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require me to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for this website, Sari Laitinen is so designated.

This website may only be used for lawful purposes.  Illegal activities, including but not limited to, tampering with the website, misrepresenting the identity of a user, or conducting fraudulent activities on the website, are prohibited.  You agree not to use any device, software or routine, or data to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the website or any activity being conducted on the website.

I may modify this website, the privacy policy or the legal terms at any time. If I modify the privacy policy or legal terms, I will update the “last modified” date on this page each time its content changes.
