By scheduling a consultation or submitting a case review form, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
- Consultations are held in accordance with Idaho Rules of Profession Responsibility (“IRPC”), Rule 1.18. The lawyer’s duties to any prospective client are limited to those provided in Rule 1.18.
- The online case submission will be limited to a determination of whether the parties will form an attorney-client relationship. As such, the lawyer will not assist you on the merits of your case. By submitting an online submission, you agree that we may elect to use your fact pattern for teaching, educational, or marketing purposes in publications, including online. In the event we do so, all identities and fact specifics will be anonymized and altered. If you do not received a response within 7 business days, your request for legal representation will be deemed rejected.
- For personal consultations, the attorney will provide a preliminary review of your situation and help you consider your options for addressing the situation. The Attorney cannot and will not provide any guarantees that any particular option would be successful or advisable. You should not consider a preliminary review to be a conclusive determination on your legal matter. Any fee paid for a personal consultation is not a retainer fee or payment.
- A legal consultation may consider not only the law but also moral, economic, social and political factors that may be relevant. A consultation may require delivery of bad news.
- Attorney will make best efforts to reach you at the scheduled time. There are occasionally delays. You should consider your appointment time as an approximate starting time.
- REFUNDS. Full refunds will be provided in the event of cancellation prior to the consultation. Refunds are not granted once the consultation takes place. The consultation fee charged is for a consultation of up to 30 minutes. No refund will be granted if the consultation is concluded in less time.
- The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires a written, signed retainer agreement and payment of a retainer fee (unless such fee is waived in writing) and no attorney-client relationship will exist unless and until such conditions are met.
- Your case may be time sensitive. You agree that you are solely responsible for any deadlines related to your matter.
- WAIVER REGARDING POTENTIAL CONFLICTS. Consultations are conditioned upon your consent that information disclosed during the consultation will not prohibit the lawyer from representing a different client in the matter or any related matter. For purposes of IRPC 1.0(e), this term will be applicable where the lawyer learns during or after the consultation that a conflict with an existing client or an existing or future prospective client may exist. Where this occurs, you agree that the lawyer may represent the existing client or prospective client regardless of any information disclosed during your consultation. Therefore, the information you provide in anticipation of and during your consultation should be limited to information required to identify the parties and the general circumstances of the case. It should not include any admissions of fact and any facts presented during a consultation will be deemed to be merely allegations of fact.
- The lawyer will undertake no duties in relation to the preservation, storage, destruction, or safe keeping of any information, including documents, you provide in connection with the case review.
- An attorney will read each case review submitted. If you have not received a response within 7 business days of submission, your case will be deemed rejected.
