Terms of Use & Privacy Policy


The content of this website is intended for informational purposes only. It is not intended to provide legal advice. Laws differ by jurisdiction, and the information on this blog may not apply to every reader, case, or legal issue. You should not take, or refrain from taking, any action based upon the information contained on this blog without first seeking professional counsel.

This website contains viewpoints of R.J. Cronkhite, who is licensed only in the States of Michigan and Illinois. Nothing in the blog reflects the views of Maddin, Hauser, Heller & Roth, P.C. (“Maddin Hauser”) or any of its clients.

I am not your lawyer. Your use of this website does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and me, or between you and Maddin Hauser. While we are happy to have you contact us, merely contacting me or any Maddin Hauser attorney does not create an attorney-client relationship until an agreement has been reached between you and the firm to handle a particular matter. Because unsolicited confidential information may not be subject to an attorney-client privilege and may not be treated as confidential, you should not send confidential information to me without first speaking to one of me and receiving authorization to provide confidential information.

Although the information on this website is intended to be current and accurate, it is not guaranteed or promised to be current, accurate, or complete. This website contains links to other web sites. I make no guarantees or promises regarding these web sites and do not necessarily endorse or approve of their content.

Your PID may be used in an aggregated form to gauge the popularity of this site. I reserve the right to quote, reproduce and attribute comments that you publicly share on the site, and to contact you directly to engage in conversation.

Some web browsers send “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services.
