Please note that while many FIRE staff members are attorneys, our ability to provide assistance is limited by our mission and resources. Unless we have explicitly agreed through a signed agreement to enter into an attorney-client relationship with you, nothing in FIRE’s correspondence, advocacy, or receipt of your submission should be construed as a promise or intent to represent you in a legal capacity, and FIRE is not responsible for ensuring that any statute of limitations requirement or any other requirements or deadlines are met in your case.
