With one exception (see next paragraph), the services described on these pages are general services: Mediation services, general consulting services, and other services (for example, writing services for lawyers and law firms). In all of these services, I do not enter into attorney-client relationships, and I do not provide legal advice or legal representation.

If you wish to inquire about potentially becoming a legal client, please see my separate law firm page which sets forth separate, specific requirements before I enter an attorney-client relationship or provide legal advice. Please also read the separate disclaimer on my law firm page. As I state on my law firm page, and on its separate disclaimer, I am licensed in California, Washington, D.C., and Maine.

If you are unsure whether you seek general services or legal services, feel free to contact me and I will guide you through the analysis, without providing any legal advice. To help with that, this disclaimer explains the clear distinction between my law practice and my separate general services, that is, my separate mediation, consulting, and other work. This disclaimer explains what must happen before I enter into an attorney-client relationships to provide legal advice. As this disclaimer shows, I do not enter into an attorney-client relationship, and I do not provide legal advice or representation, unless and until a specific letter agreement is signed by both parties. The elements of that letter are fully described below.

This site is attorney advertising. It is not legal advice, and your use of this site does not form or constitute an attorney-client relationship. By using this site, you agree it provides only general information.

I do not provide legal advice or enter into an attorney-client relationship unless and until (a) a conflicts check confirms a lack of conflicts and (b) there is (1) an attorney-client retention letter (2) signed by both of us (3) that defines a specific matter (4) in a jurisdiction where I am authorized to practice law. Unless and until such a letter is completed, there is no attorney-client relationship, and any communications we have are not, and are not intended to be, legal advice.

Accordingly, absent such a letter, you agree that any communication(s), material(s), and/or information conveyed, in any form, necessarily relates to my mediation, consulting, or other non-legal general services, and is not legal advice, and does not form or constitute an attorney-client relationship.

My legal writing service is only for licensed attorneys and their law firms. It is not for the general public, and I do not provide legal writing services to pro se litigants or any other parties. When writing for licensed attorneys and their law firms, I do not provide legal advice to the lawyer’s client; my work does not form or constitute an attorney-client relationship with the lawyer’s client; and the the lawyer / law firm with whom I contract on a freelance / outsource basis is solely responsible for all use and advice arising from my work product.


Hiring a lawyer is an important decision. You should consult an attorney in your jurisdiction, and not this website, as to your particular issue. Information on this site should not be acted upon without seeking individual legal counsel. Among other things, the law is always changing, and the law may vary in your particular jurisdiction. As I stated above, and on my law firm web page, I am licensed in CA, ME, and DC.

Please do not send any information to me or Adam Daley Wilson LLC in any form unless and until specifically requested. Information, materials, and communications are not privileged or confidential unless and until there is an attorney-client relationship, and, as discussed above, no such relationship forms absent limited circumstances arising form the above-referenced retention letter.

I am not specialized and I do not have any special certification or specialized expertise in art law, media law, or entertainment law, which, as explained on this site, are not one single area of law, but rather a blend of many areas of law, combined with industry norms. I do not and cannot promise any specific result in a case. I do not practice law or undertake an attorney-client relationship except where I am licensed and authorized to practice law. I do not practice law or advertise in any jurisdiction where it is prohibited.

When serving as a lawyer I provide advice and counseling; I do not provide litigation services except in certain specific circumstances when I serve as co-counsel.

In sum, my mediation, consulting, and other general services work does not provide legal advice, and it does not form or constitute an attorney-client relationship. I do not enter attorney-client relationships or provide legal advice or representation unless and until the mutually agreed-upon retention letter, described above, is complete. If you have any questions about these important distinctions, please contact me directly at (207) 699-9957.
