Terms of Use

Section 1. Terms of Use

Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, these Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your use of all of the websites that Assemble Law Group, PLLC (hereinafter “Assemble Law Group”, “Washington Wills”, “we”, or “us”) operates, including, but not limited to, http://www.wa-wills.com (the “Websites”), as well as the products, information, and services provided through the Websites, including, but not limited to, legal information, definitions, instructions, model forms, blog, blog comments, and customer support services (together with the Websites, the “Services”).

Section 2. Your Agreement to the Terms

YOUR ACCESS TO, USE OF, OR PAYMENT FOR ANY OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, YOUR PAYMENT FOR SERVICES ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER PERSON, SIGNIFIES THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS. By accessing or using any Services you also represent that you have the legal authority to accept the Terms on behalf of yourself and any party you represent in connection with your use of any Services. If you do not agree to the Terms, you are not authorized to use any Services.

Section 3. No Legal Advice

Although Assemble Law Group is a law firm, information on the Websites is not legal advice or legal services and is not a substitute for the advice or services of your own attorney. An attorney you hire would have a duty to learn enough about you to be able to provide you with advice customized to address your specific needs. In contrast, information on the Websites is intended for a wide audience, just like a printed reference book you might find at a law library. We have not become your attorneys simply because you contacted us, accessed information on the Websites, or followed instructions on the Websites, and the Rules of Professional Conduct that relate to the lawyer-client relationship do not apply.

Section 4. Changes to the Terms

From time to time, Washington Wills may change, remove, or add to these Terms, and reserves the right to do so in its discretion. In that case, we will post the updated Terms and indicate the date of revision.

Section 5. Payments

Payments for all Services shall be in the amounts established by Washington Wills and adjusted from time to time in the discretion of Washington Wills. If a person other than you will pay for Services on your behalf, it is your responsibility to require the person paying for the Services to read and agree to these Terms. You shall be primarily responsible for the payment of all Services you sign up to use, even if another person has previously paid or agreed to pay for Services on your behalf.

Section 6. Restrictions for Persons under Age 18

If you are under 18 years of age you are not authorized to use any Services, even if you have the approval of your parent or legal guardian.

Under no circumstances is Washington Wills liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to: any infringing Content, any errors or omissions in Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, transmitted, linked from, or otherwise accessible through or made available via the Services.
