Our websites and services grant access to independent legal professionals, including attorneys, self-help resources, and general legal information designed to aid users in managing their individual legal requirements. Additionally, our sites and services offer support to lawyers and other legal professionals.
It's essential to clarify that we are neither lawyers nor a legal firm, and we do not provide advice on legal, business, or tax matters. Our representatives, who are not lawyers, likewise do not offer such advice. We do not assure or guarantee the precision, thoroughness, adequacy, or timeliness of our content. For legal, business, or tax advice, or for any services an attorney would typically provide, our sites and services should not be used as substitutes. Consulting with a lawyer or other suitable professional is advisable if you seek specific legal, business, or tax counsel.
We endeavor to ensure that our documents and content remain accurate and current. Nevertheless, since laws can change quickly, we cannot affirm that all information across our site and services is fully up to date. Laws vary between jurisdictions and can be interpreted differently by various courts. Laws are specific to the individual, and no generalized information or legal tools like those we offer can accommodate every situation. The legal information on our sites and services is neither foolproof nor guaranteed to be accurate, complete, or current. If you require legal advice tailored to your unique situation or if your issue is too intricate for our tools to handle, it's best to seek a licensed attorney in your locality. Usage of our sites and services does not establish, nor will ever establish, an attorney-client relationship between us and you. Since we are not a referral service for lawyers, all information, resources, and services on our sites are strictly for personal use only.
Our websites and services present various methods for you to discover and connect with an attorney or other legal services. This includes advertising from lawyers, a browsable directory of lawyers and legal firms, and our special legal service that shares information about lawyers and law firms willing to reach out to you with your consent (all referred to as "lawyer services"). Participation of lawyers and law firms within these lawyer services is contingent upon a payment from the lawyers or law firms, and we do not endorse or recommend any particular lawyers or law firms. The choice to hire an attorney is a significant one and should be made with care, relying on your personal assessment and evaluation of that attorney. If you opt to utilize the lawyer services, please review the terms and conditions that follow. Should you find these terms and conditions unacceptable, kindly refrain from using the lawyer services.
Our sites and services offer you ways to access legal information and handle legal matters yourself with do-it-yourself products and services (the "self-help services"). If you are using the self-help services, you should read the terms and conditions below. If you disagree with these terms and conditions, please do not use the self-help services.
