This Agreement will govern use of this website, including all content provided on the website, and access to all online services provided by HLS.

Limitation of Representation
Annie Harrison is licensed to practice law in Ohio. This website and law office offer services related only to Ohio law. HLS does not seek, and this website is not intended to solicit, legal employment in any state that would constitute the unauthorized practice of law.
Contact before Attorney-Client Relationship is Established
Transmission of information from contact forms or attorney's e-mail through this site does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Any information conveyed to HLS via the Internet may not be secure, and information conveyed prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship may not be privileged or confidential. Therefore, please do not send any confidential information to HLS until an attorney-client relationship has been clearly established.
Establishing an Attorney-Client Relationship
An attorney-client relationship will be established only after Annie Harrison has expressly communicated the ability to represent you. The attorney may decline to represent you if a possible conflict of interest is discovered, or if she believes your legal needs cannot be addressed in an online setting. Please do not use the website contact form or attorney's email to provide confidential information to the attorney as no attorney-client privilege is formed until the Legal Services Agreement is signed by client and attorney.
By registering on this website, you are representing that you are 18 years of age and able to enter into a binding contract with HLS. Furthermore, you are representing that you are registering under your own legal name, and not under a pseudonym, fictitious name or alias, and that all personal information provided is true and accurate. HLS requests that personal contact information be updated as needed through your personal client account. All clients must be prepared to provide valid photo identification upon attorney's request.

However, we protect the confidentiality and security of this information. We do not provide this information to third parties except those third parties who host or administer our website, or as otherwise required by law.
Scope of Services
The scope of legal services which HLS will perform for you will be expressly agreed upon in writing by you before any legal services are performed, and will not include any services that have been expressly excluded or are otherwise outside the scope of the written Legal Services Agreement. HLS provides affordable legal documents for a one-time flat fee which will be clearly stated in the Legal Services Agreement signed by both client and attorney. If services outside the scope of the written agreement are required, the client may request a price quote for additional legal work.
In most situations, a client’s funds will not be transferred to HLS until the legal services requested by the client are ready to be accessed and received by the client from their client account. After the client’s payment of the agreed upon price is confirmed, the client will have complete access to the legal documents or services provided by the attorney.
As with any legal service, HLS cannot guarantee any legal outcome. No information published on this website should be construed as a guarantee of any particular outcome or result. Nevertheless, HLS is pleased to provide our clients with a 30 day money back guarantee if we cannot satisfy your reasonable requests concerning the legal documents purchased on this website.
