LL is not a law firm or law office in any way, shape, or form. Nor are we offering legal advice to you or recommending any specific attorneys that offer consultations on our site (“Consulting Attorneys”). Using LL does not create an attorney-client relationship with LL or any employee of LL. LL is not a lawyer referral service.
Consulting Attorneys that offer consultations on our site do so as independent contractors. Consulting Attorneys may own their own practice or they may work for a law firm. They are not managed, supervised, or otherwise controlled by LL. We do not make any representations or guarantees about a Consulting Attorney’s license to practice law, qualifications, quality, or experience. Views and statements by Consulting Attorneys do not necessarily reflect those of LL. Consulting Attorneys pay LL a flat fee to be included in the call list for consultations. No fee or profit sharing occurs between Consulting Attorneys and LL.
You use our site solely at your own risk. When you submit your contact information through LL you agree to receive calls and messages from Consulting Attorneys.
Consultations with Consulting Attorneys initiated through the site are meant as a starting point for addressing a legal problem. It’s not designed to replace the hiring of an attorney or meeting face to face with one.
Consulting Attorneys are paired with users on a first come, first served basis. LL does not recommend, endorse, or hand-pick any specific Consulting Attorney.
We do not guarantee the quality or accuracy of legal advice given by Consulting Attorneys. We shall not be held liable for misleading, inaccurate, or otherwise harmful legal advice given by a Consulting Attorney. Advice received from a Consulting Attorney on LL is for informational purposes only and should be confirmed by speaking with other attorneys. In no event shall we be liable to you or anyone else for actions taken or not taken based on the advice received from a Consulting Attorney.
You are responsible for ensuring the Consulting Attorney(s) you speak with does not have a conflict of interest with you. We are not liable to you or any third parties for any such conflict of interest violation.

We do not guarantee that your phone consultation will last 15 minutes or any set amount of time. You or the Consulting Attorney may end the call at any time. Consulting Attorneys reserve the right to refuse to speak with you or represent you for any reason. Text, voice, long distance, and data charges from your phone provider may apply and are your sole responsibility.

Consulting Attorneys on LL are allowed to contact you post consultation unless you explicitly opt out of these communications with each specific Consulting Attorney in writing. It is your responsibility to discuss the extent of your attorney-client relationship after the consultation.
LL shall not be responsible for actions taken or not taken post consultation with Consulting Attorneys. Any agreements oral or written made between you and a Consulting Attorney are done so at your own risk and without the involvement, responsibility, or liability of LL.
