PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG WEBSITE. BY USING LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG AS A VISITOR YOU AGREE THAT SUCH USE CONSTITUTES YOUR ASSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SITE.
LICENSEDLAWYER and its services are owned and operated by EUCLID TECHNOLOGY (referred to hereafter as “We,” “Us” or “Our”). PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS provide listings of their respective attorneys in LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG under a subscription agreement with EUCLID TECHNOLOGY.
1. Description of Services. Our goal is to assist consumers in searching, finding and connecting with participating lawyers that are licensed in the state in which they provide services. LICENSEDLAWYER is an interactive, computerized, attorney directory. LICENSEDLAWYER offers an online means for lawyers and potential clients to exchange professional qualifications and contact information. You understand that PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY do not endorse any of the lawyers or law firms (collectively referred to hereafter as a “Law Firm”) listed on the site. It is your decision alone whether or not to work with any Law Firm listed on the Site. PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY do not receive any portion of any Law Firm's fees for legal services paid by clients and any arrangements subsequently made by you. Your engagement of any Law Firm is strictly between you and such Law Firm and does not involve PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY in any way.
3. Establishment of Attorney-Client Relationship. LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG does not provide legal services. The site and its services are simply a directory of lawyers for 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 (although a Law Firm may provide legal advice to you in the event you engage such Law Firm to serve as your legal counsel), and nothing on the site should be construed as legal advice or used as a substitute for legal advice. The materials and information on the site do not necessarily reflect the opinions of PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS or EUCLID TECHNOLOGY. The information on the site is not guaranteed by PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS or EUCLID TECHNOLOGY to be correct, complete, up-to-date, reliable or error-free. The use of the site and services offered at the site does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship between PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY and any third party or between you and the attorney of any of the Law Firms, their partners, employees, agents or affiliates, or any other attorney associated with the Site. Additionally, the mere receipt of an email from or a "post" on the Site does not create an attorney-client relationship. As between you and a Law Firm, no attorney-client relationship will be established until you and the Law Firm you are engaging have formally accepted the engagement and mutually agree to representation. You understand and agree that the Law Firm you engage to represent you is solely responsible for providing its services to you. You understand and agree that PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY and 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 Law Firm advertised on the site shall be brought solely against such Law Firm. YOU SHOULD NOT ACT OR RELY ON THE BASIS OF ANY INFORMATION ON THE SITE WITHOUT SEEKING AND RETAINING THE ADVICE OF A LAW FIRM.
4. Attorney-Client Privilege and Conflicts.
a. Because LICENSEDLAWYER.ORG does not provide legal services and because the site is simply an interactive, computerized attorney directory, your use of the site and its services do 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 or its services. 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. If information that would otherwise be subject to a legal privilege is posted or transmitted on the site, no assurance can be given that the Site will maintain the privilege. 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, is your sole responsibility.
b. It is the sole responsibility of the Law Firm to investigate whether there is a conflict of interest such that the Law Firm cannot represent you. 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 Law Firm. Determining whether a legal conflict exists is the sole responsibility of such Law Firm. You understand and agree that PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY and 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 arising from any Law Firm’s failure to investigate potential conflicts of interest arising from your use of the site and its services.

By posting, submitting or transmitting any material, information, communication or content (“content”) directly to LICENSEDLAWYER’S site, you (a) agree that such content will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, (b) agree that PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY will be under no obligation of any kind with respect to such content, and (c) grant to PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY 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 BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY have no obligation to add authorship attribution of your content. You understand and agree to waive and forego asserting any moral rights you may have in the content. By submitting content to LICENSEDLAWYER, you represent and warrant that you have authority to provide such content to LICENSEDLAWYER, PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY and grant the rights to the content described above, and that doing so does not and will not constitute the infringement or misappropriation of the trade secrets or other confidential information of you or any third party.

9. User Representations. By using the site and its services, you represent and warrant to PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY that you are:
a. of legal age and able to form a binding contract with PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY, and
b. not a direct competitor of EUCLID TECHNOLOGY.
IF YOU CANNOT TRUTHFULLY MAKE ALL OF THE ABOVE REPRESENTATIONS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SITE.
10. User Obligations. You agree that you will:
b. provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the site (“Registration Data”);
12. Disclosures Regarding Attorney Listings.
a. 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:
b. 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.
c. LICENSEDLAWYER does not 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.
d. 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 Association in the State in which such lawyers or Law Firms are licensed.
e. 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. 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 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 is more expert or competent than any other lawyer.
f. 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.
14. Limitation of Access and Removal of Access.
a. PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS and EUCLID TECHNOLOGY make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain and provide access to its site and services and will endeavor to provide you with advance warning of restrictions to access due to routine website maintenance.

21. General. PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS is based in the United States. PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATIONS makes no claims that the data or content on its site or its services are appropriate or may be downloaded outside of the United States. Access to the site and services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the site from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction. These Terms are governed in all respects by the laws of the State of the PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATION, excluding that state’s conflicts of laws provisions. Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the site or services must be brought in the state or federal courts of the state of the PARTICIPATING BAR ASSOCIATION, and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the sites or services must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to these Terms, and you expressly waive all rights of application or appeal, if any, to non-U.S. courts in connection with any question of law. A party may give notice to the other party only in writing at that party's principal place of business, attention of that party's principal legal officer, or at such other address or by such other method as the party shall specify in writing.
