("ALS") which is a British Columbia corporation. ALS operates the Sites to provide general information to the public about the legal services provided by LawOne network members. Use of the Sites is subject to the following terms and conditions which ALS may update from time-to-time without notice. Your use of the website constitutes your agreement to be bound by these terms. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions stop using the Sites immediately.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Website Information not Intended to be Legal Advice Materials provided on the Sites constitute general information relating to areas of law familiar to LawOne network members. The information on the Sites is not intended to provide or replace legal advice or other professional advice. The facts of your case are important and may affect how the law applies. Therefore, general statements of law and comments made in materials on the Sites or information accessed through links on the Sites to other legal resources are not a substitute for getting specific legal advice on your particular legal situation from a lawyer qualified to practice in the jurisdiction where you are located.
Liability ALS will have no liability for any damage arising from the misuse of any information provided on the Sites. The information provided on the Sites is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Doing so without seeking the advice of legal counsel constitutes a misuse of the information. You are cautioned to consult a lawyer before you rely on or use the legal information obtained from any website.
No automatic solicitor-client relationship (lawyers cannot be retained by email) Accessing or using the Sites may facilitate communications with LawOne network lawyers by e-mail or voicemail, however, receipt of any such communications or transmissions by any LawOne network member does not create a solicitor-client relationship, unless the lawyer or firm agrees to represent you.
Ability of Law Firm to Represent You LawOne provides a method for you to locate and contact a lawyer who is experienced in the legal practice area that you need and who practises law in the geographic area where you are located. The lawyer or law firm may or may not be able to represent you. Participating lawyers may decline to provide service to any potential client for any reason that is permitted by bar association or law society rules applicable to that lawyer (including for example, conflict of interest or inability of the client to pay for the services requested). Do not assume that any lawyer or law firm will provide legal services for you until that lawyer or law firm has confirmed that it is able to represent you and that it will represent you in the matter at issue.
Outcomes will vary according to the facts References to successful case results where LawOne network members have acted for clients are not a guarantee or indicative of future results. The outcome of every legal proceeding will vary according to the facts in each individual case.
Currency and accuracy of material not guaranteed Due to ongoing legislative changes and developments in case law, information on the Sites may be date sensitive. ALS makes reasonable efforts to present and maintain current and accurate information on the Sites but we do not guarantee or warrant its currency, completeness or accuracy, or the currency or accuracy of information contained on sites to which this website links. The Sites and the materials provided on the Sites are provided "as is" and "as available" without representations, warranties or conditions of any kind, either expressed or implied.
Links to Third Party Sites The Sites have been designed to be a resource for information on matters that might be of interest to the general public. As a result, there may be links from the Sites to third party sites. These links are provided for convenience only, and do not mean that ALS or LawOne network members recommend the information contained in linked websites, or guarantee its accuracy, timeliness or fitness for a particular purpose. ALS and LawOne network members take no responsibility for the content or practices of third party sites.
Not a Referral Service LawOne is not a lawyer referral service. LawOne is a marketing system under which a network of participating lawyers and law firms market their services jointly.
Privacy Protection If you are using LawOne, we may obtain certain personal information from you in order to provide you with the name and contact information for a participating LawOne network law firm. This information is not shared with any unrelated organization for any purpose.
Lawyer Fees Fees paid for legal services provide by a LawOne network law firm are payable entirely to the lawyer(s) that provide the fees. ALS does not retain any portion of these fees.
Fees Paid by Lawyers ALS charges fees to the participating law firms for the use of its technology, marketing and other services.
Quality of Service ALS cannot and does not take responsibility for the quality, completeness or accuracy of any services provided by participating LawOne network lawyers.
Initial Contact with Lawyers You agree not to provide confidential information to a lawyer prior to the lawyer agreeing to represent you in the matter at issue. If you do send confidential information, you agree that the lawyer or law firm may review any information you transmit to them. You agree that the lawyer or law firm has no obligation to maintain the confidentiality of any information you submit to them unless the lawyer or law firm has already agreed to represent you or they later agree to do so. You agree that the review of your information, even if it is highly confidential, does not preclude the lawyer or law firm from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.
Disputes While ALS will endeavour to assist lawyers and members with any disputes over fees, any dispute regarding fees or services provided by participating law firms is ultimately the responsibility of the law firm that provided the legal services.
Limitation of Liability In no event shall ALS be liable in any area of the law for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use the services that we offer or the performance of the services that we offer even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages so this limitation and exclusion may not apply to you.
No Partnership Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended or is to be construed to constitute ALS and participating law firms as partners or joint venturers in any legal sense. None of the parties intend that a partnership, joint venture or similar relationship be formed by this Agreement.
Many legal issues have time limits that can affect your right to bring a claim and/or your compensation. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner your rights can be protected.
