SPECIFIC DISCLAIMERS – THE COMPANY DOES NOT PRACTICE LAW OR PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE
THE COMPANY IS NOT A LAW FIRM, DOES NOT PRACTICE LAW, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL ADVICE WHATSOEVER. THE COMPANY MAY OFFER AND PROVIDE FORMS AND TEMPLATES, WHICH MAY INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WILLS, POWERS OF ATTORNEY, AND OTHER SUCH DOCUMENTS, AND THE COMPANY MAY FURTHER PROVIDE AUTOMATED SERVICES TO ENABLE YOU TO FILL IN AND COMPLETE SUCH FORMS AND TEMPLATES – THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NO SERVICES, SOFTWARE TOOLS, OR MATERIALS CONTAINED IN ANY SITE ARE SUBSTITUTES FOR LEGAL ADVICE AND WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO SEEK LEGAL COUNSEL FROM A LICENSED ATTORNEY PRIOR TO ENTERING INTO ANY LEGAL DOCUMENT. ACCORDINGLY, THERE IS NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF ANY SITES OR SERVICES, OR OTHERWISE.
EVEN IF THE COMPANY OFFERS OR PROVIDES AN ATTORNEY SUPPORT SERVICE OR OTHER LEGAL SERVICE PLANS IN CERTAIN AREAS, THE COMPANY IS NONETHELESS NOT A LAW FIRM, DOES NOT PRACTICE LAW, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL ADVICE – IN SUCH EVENT ALL LEGAL ADVICE WOULD BE PROVIDED BY INDEPENDENT LICENSED ATTORNEYS (NOT THE COMPANY), SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF A SEPARATE TERMS OF SERVICE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY, AND FURTHER SUBJECT TO ANY ENGAGEMENT AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND THE ATTORNEY OR LAW FIRM THAT IS PROVIDING YOU WITH LEGAL ADVICE.
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION REGARDING FORMS, TEMPLATES, AND DOCUMENTS PREPARED BY YOU WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF ANY OF OUR SITES AND/OR SERVICES. YOU EXPRESSLY HEREBY REPRESENT, WARRANT AND COVENANT THAT YOU WILL PRIOR TO SIGNING CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL DOCUMENTS PREPARED BY YOU THROUGH OUR SITES AND SERVICES, AND YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR (AND THAT THE COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR) THE FINAL DOCUMENTS SIGNED BY YOU.

Forms, Templates, and Documents
Pursuant to certain of our Services, the Company may offer or provide forms and/or templates for you to fill in and complete, including through software tools available within a particular Service. As stated in the preceding Specific Disclaimer section, the Company is not a law firm, does not practice law, and does not provide any legal advice whatsoever. You expressly agree that your use of any of our forms, templates, articles, resources, materials, Sites, non-attorney support personnel (such as chat or phone support), or any of our Services that enable you to fill in or complete forms, templates or documents such as wills or powers of attorney, does not constitute the practice of law and is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. Accordingly, under no circumstances will an attorney-client privilege be created between you and the Company, and no information provided by you to the Company shall be protected by the attorney-client privilege or as a privileged work product. If you at any time feel that you should obtain or need legal advice on any matter, including, without limitation, the use of any of our forms, templates, or Services, you are strongly encouraged to consult with an attorney duly licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction.
The Company offers and provides among its Services online software tools, functionality, and features that enable you to create and securely store your own legal documents and other documents as you deem appropriate, none of which shall be considered legal advice or the practice of law, and none of which are insured or guaranteed to be up-to-date, accurate, complete, free of errors or legally binding or enforceable. There can be no assurances whatsoever that any legal documents that you prepare or created using the Services will be suitable for you or fit your particular situation or needs unless you obtain legal advice from an attorney who has reviewed such legal documents. Forms and templates available through the Services may be too general in nature for your specific needs (which may be too complex for you to adequately address with our tools and Services), and such documents may not be capable of being customized sufficiently to meet your particular needs or address your specific problems or issues, in which event you consult with an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction.
IMPORTANT – If you at any time believe that the Company has given you any legal advice of any kind or nature pertaining to any documents, then please do not use such documents for any purpose. Your use of any documents created or prepared by you with the assistance or use of any of our Sites or Services is done so at your own risk.
