Platform Not Legal Advice

We do not review any information you provide through CAS for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your selection of forms or the options you choose within that form, or apply the law to the facts of your situation, unless you engage Freeman Lovell for those services as a law firm and specifically request legal services for any particular project or document.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by emailing us at email@example.com.
However, if Freeman Lovell is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to your use of CAS and Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through binding arbitration under the auspices of JAMS Alternative Dispute Resolution (" JAMS"). JAMS will administer any such arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Salt Lake City (UT). A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute.
Any notice to Freeman Lovell should be addressed to Freeman Lovell, PLLC, 9980 South 300 West, Suite 200, Sandy, UT 84070. Any notice to you shall be sent to your address as set forth in Freeman Lovell's records of account or such other legal address as Freeman Lovell is able to identify.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate our disputes as provided above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
Either you or Freeman Lovell may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Salt Lake City, Utah or in any United States county where you live or work without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Freeman Lovell may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of CAS or Services without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Freeman Lovell may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
In the event that the agreement to arbitrate provided herein is found to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, then as a condition to your use of CAS and Services we agree that any resulting judicial proceedings will be brought in the federal or state courts of Salt Lake City, Utah, and by your use of CAS and Services you expressly consent to venue and personal jurisdiction of the courts therein.
Freeman Lovell may, in the future, make changes to these provisions regarding dispute resolution and arbitration by providing notice in accordance with the section of these Terms entitled "Modifications" below. You may reject any changes made during your Membership by sending us written notice. Such notice must be given within thirty (30) calendar days of the notice of modification to the following address: Freeman Lovell PLLC, 9980 South 300 West, Suite 200, Sandy, UT 84070.
These Terms will be governed by Utah law except for its conflicts of laws principles.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Freeman Lovell with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability and Assignment
Freeman Lovell's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Freeman Lovell may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, posting on our blog or on this page). By continuing to use or access CAS and Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
