WhoNeedsLegal.com provides an online legal portal to give visitors a general understanding of the law and to provide an automated software solution to individuals who choose to: (i) prepare their own legal documents; or (ii) locate their own attorneys to answer their legal questions. To that extent, the Site includes general information on commonly encountered legal issues. At no time do we or any of our employees review your answers or any questions or other information submitted by you for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, exercise professional judgment, provide legal advice, representation or services, provide for the practice of law, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Our documents are not individualized and are not offered as a specific solution to individual problems. In providing documents to individual members of the public, we do not provide assistance or advice in selecting the appropriate form or forms or in the adaptation of such forms to your particular circumstance.

If you utilize any tools provided by our website to find answers to your legal questions, you are recognized as the client of the attorney chosen by you if the attorney accepts to answer your legal question. Your use of WhoNeedsLegal for any purpose does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and WhoNeedsLegal.

WhoNeedsLegal strives to keep its legal documents accurate, current and up-to-date.

Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. If your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.

Attorneys selected by you for assistance in answering your legal questions may contact you by email or telephone, when responding to your posting. The information provided on this website by you may not be protected by the attorney-client privilege.

You understand that memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses and memberships in a scientific, expert, or authority or certifications in a particular field of law, do not mean that such attorney is more expert or competent than any other attorney. You also understand that any indication of a limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such attorney as a specialist, expert or authority in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such attorney is more expert or competent than any other attorney. We urge all users to make an independent investigation and evaluation of any attorney such user is considering hiring to answer your legal question.

WhoNeedsLegal does not solicit directly or indirectly professional employment for any attorney, but instead provides a self-help tool for you to find affordable attorneys who can help you answer your legal questions. To be listed in our directory, the listed attorneys do not provide us with any compensation or anything of value.

Anyone considering an attorney should independently investigate the attorney's credentials and ability.

It is a passive service for storage and dissemination of the ideas and opinions that WhoNeedsLegal members may choose to post and distribute as User Content. WhoNeedsLegal disclaims all copyright and ownership in such works and all responsibility for them.

Although we cannot make an absolute guarantee of system security, WhoNeedsLegal takes reasonable steps to maintain security. If you have reason to believe system security has been breached, please contact us.

If WhoNeedsLegal's technical staff finds that files or processes belonging to a user pose a threat to the proper technical operation of the system or to the security of other users, WhoNeedsLegal reserves the right to delete those files or to stop those processes. If the WhoNeedsLegal technical staff suspects a user name is being used by someone who is not authorized by the proper user, WhoNeedsLegal may temporarily disable that user's access in order to preserve system security. In all such cases, WhoNeedsLegal will contact the user as soon as feasible.

WhoNeedsLegal has the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to (i) edit, redact or otherwise change any User Content, (ii) re-categorize any User Content to place it in a more appropriate location or (iii) pre-screen or delete any User Content.

The use of your WhoNeedsLegal user account or posting User Content for any illegal activity under any applicable law is a violation of these Terms of Use. Since the law as to jurisdiction of online systems is unsettled, we urge you to consider the possible effect of laws outside WhoNeedsLegal's locality or your own residence. WhoNeedsLegal is open to users worldwide (and works published on the World Wide Web, Usenet or other such services are accessible to anyone on the Internet), and WhoNeedsLegal cannot guarantee that you won't run into legal trouble in other jurisdictions over your posting.
