Neither the Utah State Bar, the Estate Planning Section, nor any of the attorneys participating on this listserv are engaged in rendering legal services or advise to the public, to any particular person or group of persons, or to any attorney or law firm by participation in this listserv.

The listserv is really just a giant list of e-mail addresses. When you join, you add your address to the list. When you quit, your address is removed. You communicate with the group by sending an e-mail message to the central computer running the list. That computer distributes a copy of the message to everyone in the group. Then, anyone can respond either to the entire group by responding to the central computer, or respond directly to you.

For example, suppose you are looking for advice from any lawyer who has handled a trial before Judge X, in St. George, or you need a form for Attorney's Lien, or you have a question on how to renew a judgment before it expires, etc. You can send a message to the group that asks your question, and anyone in the group can respond to you directly by e-mail. Or they can respond to the group as a whole. Group responses often trigger a larger, broader discussion. This will enable us to expand our form files, expand our network of associates, enlarge our prospective, relieve stress and help us enjoy our practice. Participate soon!!!!
