Legal Whoosh.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 prepare their own legal documents. Customer need not download or even license Legal Whoosh software. The Site includes general information on commonly encountered legal issues. The Legal Whoosh Services also include a review of your answers for completeness, spelling, and for internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Legal Whoosh is not a law firm and may not perform services performed by an attorney. Legal Whoosh, its Services, and its forms or templates are not a substitute for the advice or services of an attorney.
Legal Whoosh strives to keep its legal documents accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, Legal Whoosh cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site or Applications is completely current. The law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information or legal tool like the kind Legal Whoosh provides can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site and Applications is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.
From time to time, Legal Whoosh may perform certain attorney access services and introduce our visitors to attorneys through various methods, including but not limited to (i) legal plans, (ii) third party attorney directory listings, and (iii) third party limited scope agreements. At no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with Legal Whoosh through the performance of any such services.
This Site and Applications are not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and your use of Legal Whoosh does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Legal Whoosh. Instead, you are and will be representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake through Legal Whoosh's legal document service.
When you use our Services, you will have the opportunity to initiate contact with an independent attorney (a "Participating Attorney"). Participating Attorneys are neither employees nor agents of Legal Whoosh. Participating Attorneys are third-party independent contractors through Legal Shield network that have agreed to provide limited consultations or legal reviews to Legal Whoosh users. Communicating with a Participating Attorney through Legal Whoosh is NOT required. However, if you choose to communicate with a Participating Attorney through Legal Whoosh, please note the following:
When you contact a Participating Attorney through Legal Whoosh, he or she may provide you with an initial consultation, legal review of your forms or documents, or answers to your legal questions. Please note that any such interaction is intended to be a starting point for dealing with a legal matter or addressing basic legal questions and any attorney-client relationship formed during the course of that interaction is strictly between you and the Participating Attorney and expressly EXCLUDES Legal Whoosh.
When you contact a Participating Attorney through Legal Whoosh, he or she may ask you for some information regarding you and your legal affairs in order to properly address your questions. By using our Services, you consent to sharing such personally identifying information for the purpose securing legal advice with both the requesting attorney and with Legal Whoosh. Legal Whoosh will have access to any communications submitted through our platform for fulfillment and quality assurance purposes.
When you contact a Participating Attorney through Legal Whoosh, you control the both the duration and depth of the interaction. Any attorney-client relationship formed during the course of that interaction may, at your option, either (i) end when the interaction with the Participating Attorney ends, or (ii) continue if you wish to engage the Participating Attorney for further legal services.
If you wish to create an attorney-client relationship with a Participating Attorney that extends beyond your use of our Services, that relationship will be on whatever terms you establish with the attorney in question. Those terms do NOT involve Legal Whoosh and, except for pre-negotiating special discounts for our members, we do not set, control or influence them. For example, the Participating Attorney may ask you to sign a formal representation agreement regarding the scope of work they will perform, the cost of their legal services, and the handling of any out of pocket expenses they may incur.
Participating Attorneys may be compensated by Legal Whoosh for Services performed on your behalf, however, Legal Whoosh does not receive any share of legal fees collected by any attorneys in our network. In all cases, Legal Whoosh will not influence or interfere in any way with any attorney's independent professional judgment. Participating Attorneys reserve the right to refuse to perform legal services on your behalf in their sole discretion.

Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling our Customer Care Center at 1-888-3WHOOSH. In the unlikely event that the Legal Whoosh Customer Care Center is unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if Legal Whoosh has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court rather than in a court of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than a court does, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
You agree to release, indemnify and hold Legal Whoosh, your Program Sponsor and its affiliates and their respective officers, employees, directors and agent harmless from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of any third party claims relating to your use of the Service, your violation of these Terms or your violation of any rights of another.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Legal Whoosh 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.
Legal Whoosh'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. Legal Whoosh 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 the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
