Our office is in Los Angeles, California. The attorney responsible for this web site is Jonathan Kramer. He's licensed as an Attorney and Counselor at Law in California. He has a bunch of FCC licenses and a State of California CSLB license, too, but that's not relevant to this discussion.
Kramer Telecom Law Firm, P.C. is a professional corporation authorized by the California Secretary of State, and a law corporation authorized by the State Bar of California. Really. We've got the papers to prove it, and we get to pay an extra fee each year to the State Bar to maintain the P.C. status. Joy.
Although we do work with very qualified attrorneys in various states, this web site is not intended to assist any attorney in this or any other firm seek professional employment in any state where the firm's lawyers are not admitted to practice, nor in any state where this web site would not comply with applicable requirements concerning advertisements and solicitations.
Disclaimers for Normal PeopleCongratulations on being normal. This is for you...
KTLF specifically disclaims any responsibility for information, facts, assertions, lies, peanuts, popcorn, etc. on pages stored at and/or displayed from this site, and on World Wide Web pages which are linked to or from any page at this site, and pages which aren't linked here, and pages that only exist in the minds of their webmasters.
Moreover, we disclaim any responsibility for anything anyone ever told you growing up, including but not limited to your mother and father, teachers, and friends. Remember, the Net is just like TV and radio; if you're of age and you don't like what you see or hear, you need only switch it off or to another channel...yourself. No one will (or should) do that for you.
Our information is offered in order, and oft-times with jest, to provide you with a starting point for your further investigation, Shamus, and you must not rely upon any of it as legal advice unless we have first entered into an attorney-client relationship. Yeah, this is about the third time we've said that, but some people need to be hit over the head several times before they get it.
As we pesky lawyers say, 'Each particular situation will be factually unique.' 'Your mileage may vary.' 'Void where prohibited.' 'May be cancelled or changed without notice.'
You should consult a real live attorney if you wish to determine your rights, wrongs and obligations under applicable (and sometimes even under inapplicable) law. Don't know a good attorney? We know one or two...just call and ask.
KTLF, which operates this site, recognizes the earth-shattering importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about visitors to our site. Frankly, we're not sophisticated enough to automatically collect your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address or email address, SSN, hopes, wishes, disappointments, etc. We need your help to do that.
Personally identifiable information about visitors, spies, snoops, etc. to our site is collected only when you knowingly and voluntarily submit it, or forget to block it (such as your static or dynamic I.P. address). Remember, only you can hit the ENTER key!
We may, and sometimes do, collect certain non-personal information to "clog the log" (ours; not yours). That non-personal data may include the identity of your Internet browser (huh? You didn't know your browser had an identity?), the type of operating system you use (we won't tell Bill G. if it's "something else"), and the domain name or I.P. address of your Internet service provider or your DSL or your T1 or your tin-cans-and-string connection.
We may use such non-personal information for internal purposes, including but not limited to impressing our spouses, kids, dogs, etc. about how many visitors come to our site... Interestingly, exactly the same number of visitors who come to this site end up leaving this site. Go figure!
"We'd Like To Know A Little Bit About
You For Our Files…"In those instances when we do collect personally identifiable information, the following policies apply:
We'll tell you when we are collecting personally identifiable information about you by asking for it. If we ask for your name, address, phone number, email address, shoe size, etc, you can be pretty sure that that's within the category of "personally identifiable information." For example, we may ask to collect your personal information to snoop on you, how you use this site, whether you're a member of any organization we support or oppose, etc.
Personally identifiable information that you provide can and may be used by us for other purposes. Such other uses and purposes may include, but not be limited to, telling your parents that you were visiting our site after your bedtime.
KTLF isn't responsible for the privacy policies or practices (or lack thereof) of linked entities, opposing organizations, space aliens, other attorneys (and other attorneys who are also space aliens), etc.
KTLF's web site maintains virtually no more than the most basic safeguards--i.e., password protected databases and the like--to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information submitted to our site. We periodically wonder if there are any real security measures that can occur in light of (or in spite of) current and new technologies. Your thoughts on this will be appreciated.
If you're uncomfortable with our honesty here, we strongly encourage you to lie, cheat, and use plenty of false data when responding to our requests for your personal information. That way, if that personal information is ever disclosed, you'll rest assured knowing that nothing of real value has been lost, and nothing of real value has been gained..
By the way, we do take lots of steps to carefully protect our client's data and their secrets, but those data and secrets are not anywhere to be found on this web site or web server.
Cookies Cookies are very tasty! We're very fond of warm, gooey white chocolate chip cookies. You?
If you don't want information about you collected using cookies (hey, why do they call 'um cookies?), there is an obscure and difficult-to-follow procedure in most web browsers to permit you to deny the cookie feature. We dare you to find it. Even if you do figure out how to block cookies, lots of web sites will stop working for you. Perhaps they're offended that you don't like the flavor of their cookies? Snobs!
But, why would anyone say, "No!" to a nice cookie?
By the way, have you erased your browser cookies recently? You should do so often. We do it every day, or every day that we remember to do so. We like Spybot for this task.
Links to Third Parties KTLF has established links from our site directly to sites operated by third parties. Why they party for the third time and we don't is one of the great unanswered questions of our time.
Visit the third party sites at your own pace (and at your own risk). We're not responsible for the content or practices of those linked web sites, or web sites operated by others that have linked to KTLF.
Frankly, we're barely responsible for this site.
You should stop back to this page really, really, really often to see if we've snuck in anything new, or chopped out anything that's vital.

Our Special Disclaimers for Attorneys This is the KTLF special disclaimer notice to attorneys and the like, as this group does not fall into the 'normal people' catagory..
Okay, here's the deal. There's a lot of really good information on this site, and some that's utterly useless.
Most of the good stuff is fairly straight forward and clear. Some of it is intended to be tongue-in-cheek. Our tongue, our cheek. Some of it is intended to be read as inside jokes. Some of it is rarely and barely read at all.
Sorry, but you're not privy to the inside jokes unless you're one of the insiders, or smart enough to know that you're one of the butt of one of them. It's important to know the difference, but after 3 or more years in law school, you should be smart enough to make an educated guess.
Just to liven up the site, there are pages here with ... gasp! ... really good information *and* inside jokes. In fact, typically greater than 4.398% of the pages here fall into that category. The question for you is whether the page you'd like to use falls into one category or the other. Of course, the simple answer is that any page you view at this site falls into one category or the other. (See, isn't this good, clean lawyer-like fun?)
So what's all this mean? Just about everything you need for your opposing-counsel check or depo background prep is already here on the site. Go search...it's there, and you'll get paid by the hour to find it! It's our little gift to you and the partners.
Finally, when you were admitted the bar, you didn't give up your sense of humor did you? <Huh? You did? Oops.. sorry!> Anyway, laugh a bit. Your beloved (and/or cat and/or dog) will welcome it, and it'll scare the hell out of the partners! Isn't that a good enough reason to enjoy humor and smile? We hope so!
Okay. I still don't get it!? Now what?Well, if you don't understand any or all of the information and disclaimers on this page, please call or write to Mr. Kramer. Using simple words and short, declarative sentences, try and explain what you don't understand. Mr. Kramer will try to explain it to you, as well as why it's important to you, and to us, or only to your, or only to us..
