These Terms of Use for Lawyers were last updated on July 23, 2018. 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG WEBSITE. IF YOU ARE USING THE SITE AS A VISITOR WITHOUT REGISTRATION, THEN BY USING THE SITE, YOU AGREE THAT SUCH USE CONSTITUTES YOUR ASSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU OPT TO APPEAR IN THE GUIDED AND POWER SEARCH SERVICES AND/OR OPT TO INDICATE THAT YOU ARE ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY SELECTING ONE OR BOTH OF THOSE OPTIONS, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IN EITHER INSTANCE, IF YOU AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF AN ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND THAT ENTITY TO THIS AGREEMENT. IN THAT EVENT, “YOU” AND “YOUR” WILL REFER AND APPLY TO THAT ENTITY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SITE. 

LICENSED LAWYER  (hereinafter LICENSED LAWYER) and its services are owned and operated by EUCLID TECHNOLOGY LLC.  EUCLID TECHNOLOGY, LLC and are referred to in this Agreement as “EUCLID,” “We,” “Us,” or “Our”. PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS provide listings of their respective attorneys on LICENSED LAWYER or services offered at LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG (referred to in this Agreement as the “SITE”) under a subscription agreement with EUCLID.

1.     Description of Services. Our goal is to assist our members in growing their businesses by providing a directory of lawyers willing to be listed in the SITE’s guided and power search services and/or listed on the SITE as willing to accept new clients. Neither EUCLID nor LICENSED  LAWYER nor the SITE is a law firm or a referral service. The SITE is an interactive, computerized, attorney directory operated by PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID. As a participating attorney on the site, you will have the ability to indicate that you are willing to be introduced to prospective clients that may find you through use of the SITE. Your use of the SITE and the services does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and LICENSED LAWYER, PARTICIPATING BARS or EUCLID. You understand that the SITE  does not endorse any of the lawyers or law firms (collectively referred to in this Agreement as a “LAW FIRM”) listed on the SITE other than to indicate lawyers listed are licensed by PARTICIPATING BARS and/or are members in good standing of the PARTICIPATING BAR. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID do not receive any portion of any LAW FIRM’S fees for legal services paid by clients and any arrangements subsequently made by you and any user of the SITE wishing to engage you (referred to in this Agreement as a “POTENTIAL CLIENT”). Your engagement by any client(s) is strictly between you and the POTENTIAL CLIENT and does not involve PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY in any way. 
2.     Legal Notices. The SITE is provided by PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID. Please carefully review the following basic rules that govern your use of the SITE. Please note that your use of the SITE constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms of Use for Lawyers. If you do not agree to them, do not use the SITE, provide any information to the site or download any information from it. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID reserve the right to update or modify these Terms at any time without prior notice to you, the user. Your use of the SITE following any such change constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms as changed. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms of Use for Lawyers whenever you use this SITE. These Terms of Use for Lawyers apply to the use of the SITE and the services offered at the SITE and do not extend to any linked third party sites. In this Agreement, “we”, “us” and “LICENSED LAWYER” mean PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, and “you” and “your” means the person using the SITE, your administrators, executors, successors, and permitted assigns, as well as the organization or company on whose behalf you may be acting when you access this SITE. If you are using the SITE on behalf of a business or organization, your assent to these terms constitutes a binding legal agreement that that business or organization for which you are acting as a representative accepts these terms. Any such business or organization will hold harmless and indemnify PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, and their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, representatives, vendors, and suppliers from and against any liability, damage, loss, cost or expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or relating to its and your use of the SITE or in violation of these Terms of Use for Lawyers . You understand and agree that your use of the SITE is an acceptance of these Terms of Use for Lawyers. 

3.     Establishment of Attorney-Client Relationship. LICENSED LAWYER does not provide legal services. The SITE and its services are simply a directory for lawyers and POTENTIAL CLIENTs seeking legal representation. All of the materials and information on the SITE are provided for informational purposes only, and may not reflect current legal developments or variances in the law of different jurisdictions. The SITE does not provide legal advice, and nothing on the site should be construed as legal advice or used as a substitute for legal advice. The information on the SITE is not guaranteed by PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID to be correct, complete, up-to-date, reliable or error-free. The use of the SITE does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship between PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID and any third party or between a POTENTIAL CLIENT and you or any of your partners, employees, agents or affiliates. As between you and a POTENTIAL CLIENT, no attorney-client relationship will be established until you and the POTENTIAL CLIENT have formally accepted the engagement and mutually agree to representation. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for providing legal services to the POTENTIAL CLIENT. You understand and agree that PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors or suppliers, or service providers shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your use or misuse of the SITE or its services (including claims against third parties based on malpractice). You understand and agree that any claim arising out of your relationship with a POTENTIAL CLIENT shall be brought solely against such POTENTIAL CLIENT. 

4.     Attorney-Client Privilege and Conflicts. 

  1. Because LICENSEDLAWYER does not provide legal services and because the SITE is simply an interactive, computerized attorney directory, your use of the SITE and its services does not confer the benefits that are part of a typical attorney-client relationship. Accordingly, you should refrain from submitting any confidential information in any post or transmission through the SITE. The SITE does not assume responsibility for the protection of confidential information, and it is possible that the dissemination of otherwise confidential information may occur through your use of the SITE and its services. The maintenance of confidentiality or legal privilege of any information posted or transmitted on the SITE by you, including information transmitted or posted to any LAW FIRM or by you to any user on the SITE, is your sole responsibility. You understand and agree that PARTICIPATING BARS, EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors, suppliers, or service providers shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your supplying of confidential information. 
  2. It is your sole responsibility to investigate whether there is a conflict of interest such that you cannot represent a POTENTIAL CLIENT. The SITE does not perform a check for legal conflicts of interest or other conflicts that may exist on your part in connection with the engagement of a POTENTIAL CLIENT. Determining whether a legal conflict exists is your sole responsibility. You understand and agree that PARTICIPATING BARS, EUCLID and their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors, suppliers, or service providers shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way arising from your failure to investigate potential conflicts of interest arising from your use of the SITE.

You may not upload or transmit any material that infringes or misappropriates any person's copyright, patent, trademark, service mark, trade secret, or rights of privacy or publicity or disclose via the SITE any information the disclosure of which would constitute a violation of a confidentiality obligation or fiduciary duty on your part. You may not upload any viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other forms of harmful computer code, nor subject LICENSED LAWYER’S network or servers to unreasonable traffic loads, or otherwise engage in conduct deemed disruptive to the ordinary operation of the SITE. You are strictly prohibited from communicating on or through the SITE any unlawful, harmful, offensive, threatening, abusive, libelous, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, fraudulent, sexually explicit, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable material of any sort, including, but not limited to, any material that encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violates any applicable local, state, national, or international law.

You are granted a limited, revocable, non-transferrable, nonexclusive license (without the right to sublicense) to download and reproduce SITE MATERIALS that are specifically made available on the SITE for the general public to download (referred to in this Agreement as “PUBLIC DOCUMENTS”), provided that any copyright and/or trademark notices on each page of a PUBLIC DOCUMENT are reproduced in full and that you agree to comply with all such notices.

The right to use any PARTICIPATING BARS’ MARK can be obtained only via a separate trademark license agreement with the trademark or service mark owner and your compliance with any applicable usage guidelines of the trademark or service mark owner.

Our reference to any product vendors or service providers, products, services, processes or other information, whether by trade name, trademark, service mark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise, does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof.

8.     User Submissions. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID do not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from you through the SITE. By posting, submitting or transmitting any material, information, communication or content (referred to in this Agreement, collectively, as “CONTENT”) directly to the SITE, you (a) agree that such CONTENT will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, (b) agree that PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID will be under no obligation of any kind with respect to such CONTENT, and (c) grant to PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID a perpetual, worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty-free, fully sublicensable and irrevocable license to reproduce, make derivative works from, use, disclose, and distribute the CONTENT to others without limitation. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID have no obligation to add authorship attribution of your CONTENT.

By submitting CONTENT to the SITE, you represent and warrant that you have authority to provide such CONTENT to PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID and grant the rights to the CONTENT described above, and that doing so does not and will not constitute infringement or misappropriation of trade secrets or other confidential information of you or any third party.

  • Duly licensed to practice law in a jurisdiction within the United States of America and currently in good standing as a lawyer in such jurisdiction.

IF YOU CANNOT TRUTHFULLY MAKE ALL OF THE ABOVE REPRESENTATIONS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SITE.
10.     Special Matters Regarding the User as a Participating Attorney on the SITE.

Each POTENTIAL CLIENT must agree to be bound by our Consumer/User Agreement. You represent to us that you have reviewed the Consumer/User Agreement, understand the terms thereof and to the extent required of you, agree to act in compliance with the Consumer/User Agreement. We have delineated certain aspects of a POTENTIAL CLIENT’s relationship with you in the Consumer/User Agreement in the event that you are engaged by a POTENTIAL CLIENT. These provisions include specifying to the POTENTIAL CLIENT that no attorney-client relationship will be established between you and the POTENTIAL CLIENT until you have formally agreed to be engaged to represent the POTENTIAL CLIENT. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, however, cannot provide assurances that our efforts to identify the creation or scope of your relationship with the POTENTIAL CLIENT will be enforceable. You acknowledge that the relationship of any client (including POTENTIAL CLIENTS) and an engaged lawyer are governed by the laws, rules, and regulations of the jurisdictions(s) in which that lawyer is licensed to practice law. Accordingly, it is your sole responsibility to assure that such an engagement is in compliance with all such laws, rules, and regulations, and you agree that PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID shall have no responsibility or liability in the event that you do not comply with such applicable laws, rules and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree to comply with all laws, rules, and regulations that:

  • Impose duties or obligations upon you regarding prospective clients, including those prohibiting the unauthorized practice of law in jurisdictions in which you are not licensed;
  • Impose limitations regarding the amount or type of fees that you may accept for legal services;
  • Impose limitations or disclosure requirements regarding advertising by lawyers, including any restrictions on the advertising of “specialties” and “areas of practice”;
  • Impose requirements that the engagement be reduced to writing, that waivers of conflicts of interest be in writing, that certain disclosures be made to the prospective client, or other similar requirements;
  • Impose ethical obligations in connection with the engagement of a client, including the clearance of conflicts, the protection of the confidentiality of client information, and the preservation of the attorney-client privilege; and
  • Impose record keeping requirements.
  • You agree to be diligent and timely in responding to communications you receive from users of the SITE.
  • To the extent that you have actual knowledge that the SITE does not comply with the laws or regulations of any jurisdiction in which it may be received, you will not knowingly accept legal representation based on or resulting from the use of the SITE from a person located in that jurisdiction.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT PARTICIPATING BARS AND EUCLID MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO YOU REGARDING THE VOLUME OR AMOUNT OF BUSINESS THAT MAY BE GENERATED ON ACCOUNT OF YOUR LISTING YOUR PROFILE ON THE SITE.

11.     Disclosures Regarding Attorney Advertising. THE SITE MAY CONTAIN ADVERTISING MATERIAL OR LAWYER ADVERTISEMENTS. Some jurisdictions may consider the SITE to be a form of advertising for legal services and as such may require specific disclosures. Please read the following carefully: 

The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer's credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Hiring a lawyer is an important process that should not be based solely upon advertisements.

Neither PARTICIPATING BARS nor any of the LAW FIRMs operate as a lawyer-advertising cooperative, lawyer referral service, prepaid legal insurance provider, or similar organization the business or activities of which include the referral of customers, members, or beneficiaries to lawyers for the performance of fee-generating legal services or the payment for or provision of legal services to the customers, members, or beneficiaries in matters for which they do not bear ultimate responsibility.

Before you decide to hire any of the LAW FIRMS, ask them to send you free written information about their qualifications and experience. Additional information about the lawyers or LAW FIRMS may also be obtained by contacting the Bar in the State in which such lawyers or LAW FIRMS are licensed.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal or other services to be performed by the LAW FIRMS is greater than the quality of legal or other services performed by other lawyers or other legal professionals. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or fields of practice do not mean that a lawyer or other legal professional is a specialist, expert, authority or is certified in a particular field of law, nor do such memberships or licenses mean that such a lawyer or legal professional is more expert or competent than any other lawyer or other legal professionals.

A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist, expert or authority in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is more expert or competent than any other lawyer. We urge all POTENTIAL CLIENTs to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. The fact that certain attorneys or firms concentrate their practices in the defense of bankruptcy cases (or any other field) is not meant to imply that they have gained any specific type of certification in these areas. Indeed, many states do not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law and explicitly state that any such certificate, award or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in those states.

Within the SITE, We may include descriptions of successful representations or lawsuits brought by the LAW FIRMS, or other attorneys not affiliated with the SITE or Us. These descriptions are not meant to create any unjustified expectations that similar results can be obtained for others, for each case turns on its own specific factual and legal circumstances. No attorney can guarantee the success of a case and past successes even in very similar lawsuits do not mean that success in a subsequent case is guaranteed or even likely. Past success cannot be an assurance of future success because each case must be decided on its own merits. Results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. The SITE is intended to provide useful, factual information presented in a non-sensational, objective and understandable manner.

Except as otherwise noted on the SITE the images and pictures on this site are not meant to represent or depict actual persons or events, but rather are merely provided for illustrative purposes only.

The SITE is not intended for the purpose of advertising legal services to be performed in any state solely by the LAW FIRMS, unless they are specifically licensed to practice in that respective State.

To the extent that the SITE does not comply with the laws or regulations of any jurisdiction in which it may be received, you will not knowingly accept legal representation based on or resulting from the use of the SITE from a person located in that jurisdiction. You will not knowingly accept legal representation based on or resulting from the use of the SITE from a person located outside the United States.

12.     Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless PARTICIPATING BARS, EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors, and suppliers from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or related to your use or misuse of the SITE, including, without limitation, your violation of these Terms of Use for Lawyers , your infringement or that of any other subscriber or user of your account, of any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity.
13.     Limitation of Access and Removal of Access. 

PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain and provide access to the SITE and will endeavor to provide you with advance warning of restrictions to access due to routine website maintenance. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, at their sole discretion, however, reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify, suspend, discontinue, or terminate the SITE or portions thereof with or without notice. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, discontinuation or termination of the SITE. You further agree that PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, representatives, vendors and suppliers will not be liable to you for the deletion or failure to store any of your content, information, or communications on the SITE. 

PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID are not responsible for screening or reviewing content submitted to the SITE. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID may temporarily or permanently remove any content on the SITE at any time where PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, in its their sole discretion believe the content is in violation of these Terms of Use for Lawyers  or where PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID are acting in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. You are advised not to use the SITE as the exclusive storage repository for your content, information, or communications. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID recommend that you separately store all content, information, and communications submitted to the SITE on other secure servers or with reputable third party hosting services.

14.     Termination. These Terms of Use for Lawyers  are effective until terminated by either party. If you no longer agree to be bound by these Terms, you must cease use of the SITE. If you’re dissatisfied with the SITE or any of these terms, conditions, and policies, your sole legal remedy is to discontinue using the SITE. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID reserve the right to terminate or suspend your access to and use of the SITE, parts of the SITE, or your user name without notice, if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such use is (i) in violation of any applicable law; (ii) is harmful to our interests or the interests, including intellectual property or other rights, of another person or entity; or (iii) where PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID have reason to believe that you are in violation of these Terms of Use for Lawyers . Termination for any reason shall not terminate any of your warranties or any of your indemnification and other obligations under these Terms of Use for Lawyers, except as specifically provided in these Terms. In the event of Termination of this Agreement by PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, you are prohibited from accessing the SITE by using the identity or Registration Data of any other person.
15.     Links to Third-Party Sites and Materials. 

The SITE may contain links or allow you to make use of add-ons that connect to sites owned or operated by independent third parties. These links are provided for your convenience and reference only. LICENSED LAWYER’s Terms of Use for Lawyers  and Privacy Policy do not apply to these sites. We do not control such sites and, therefore, we are not responsible for any content posted on such sites or the activities of third parties. The fact that LICENSED LAWYER offers such links should not be construed in any way as an endorsement, authorization, or sponsorship of that site, its content, or the companies or products referenced therein, and PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID reserve the right to note their lack of affiliation, sponsorship, or endorsement of these third-party sites on the SITE. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to this SITE, you do this entirely at your own risk. Because some sites employ automated search results or otherwise link you to sites containing information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in third-party sites, and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, representatives, vendors, and suppliers with respect to such sites.

Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, third-parties, such as third-party advertisers, found on or through the SITE, including the quality or appropriateness of the goods or services and the payment for and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third-party. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID cannot be held responsible for your interactions with any third parties, and you agree that PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID, their employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, representatives, vendors, and suppliers shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such advertisers on the SITE.

16.     Assignment and Delegation. This Agreement is not assignable or transferable by you without PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID’s prior written consent. Any purported transfer without PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID’s written authorization shall be void. PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID may assign their rights and/or delegate their duties under this Agreement in whole or in part without your consent. Upon assignment or delegation, PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID shall cease to be a party hereto and shall have no further rights or duties with respect to you under this Agreement to the extent their rights and obligations have been so assigned or delegated. The assignee or delegate shall assume the rights and duties transferred by PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created between PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID and you as a result of this Agreement.

17.     Disclaimer of Warranties. YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.

If any provision herein is held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force without being affected in any way. Further, the parties agree to replace such unenforceable provision with an enforceable provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable provision. Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. The failure of PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and shall not limit PARTICIPATING BARS and EUCLID’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement of the parties, and supersede any and all oral or written agreements or understandings between the parties, as to their subject matter.
