Feel free to contact any of the above lawyers, or any other lawyers. The decision of which lawyer to use in your case lies exclusively with you, and both I and the USOC disclaim any responsibility or liability in this area. You must make, and are responsible for, your own independent determination of an appropriate lawyer to represent you in your case, and I recommend that you conduct your own investigation of your lawyer's qualifications, credentials, ethical conduct, quality, or abilities before making your selection.
