The terms and conditions of this agreement govern your access to and use of the Truce website located at https://trucelaw.com/ and any tools hosted or provided on the website, its content, the software, and the related materials or services made available through this website (collectively, “Website”).
By using the Website, you agree to follow and be bound by, and acknowledge that you understand, these Terms, and agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. If you are using our services as the employee or agent of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.
ALL OTHER POLICIES AND GUIDELINES INCLUDED ON THIS SITE ARE INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE.
1. Use of the Website Does Not Create an Attorney Client Relationship nor Does Information Provided on the Website Constitute Legal Advice
While Truce is a Washington State law firm, your use of the Website does not, and will not, create an attorney-client relationship or privilege between you and Truce, or between you and any Truce employee or representative. An attorney client relationship can only be created through the Website by qualifying for the Truce DIY process and signing the Legal Representation Agreement (see below Appendix A). Without a valid attorney client relationship you are and will be representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake.
Any attorney client relationship created through the use of the Truce DIY process is contingent upon User truthfully completing the initial questionnaire, which was developed to screen out instances where User may not be eligible.
In addition, you must also meet with a Truce attorney to establish an attorney client relationship. If you would like to hire Truce after meeting with a Truce attorney and attorney agrees to the representation, only then can an attorney client relationship be established. Creation of an attorney client relationship will be evidenced by the completion of a legal services agreement provided by attorney.
Truce uses an automated software, which expedites the divorce process for individuals who choose to prepare their own legal documents and file their divorce documents pro se in court. The Website uses the responses provided by the user in the online questionnaire to create required divorce documents. This expedites the intake of necessary information to file a divorce.
Any documents generated from the intake software for review are not usable in court. Truce, along with User, must review the forms. Truce will provide copies of all court ready documents to User, after User has met with Truce either in person, by phone, or by videoconference.
Truce strives to keep its content online accurate, complete, and up-to-date. However, because of the unanticipated changes in governing statues, case law, variations between jurisdictions, and different interpretations of the law, we cannot guarantee that all of the forms generated and information on the Website is completely current or correct.
Truce may include legal information or general statements of the law for informational purposes only. Legal information by itself is often insufficient to resolve legal issues. Neither Truce nor any legal Information provided by Truce is a substitute for legal advice from a qualified attorney licensed to practice in an appropriate jurisdiction. If you need legal advice for a specific situation, you should consult with licensed attorney in your state. The authors and creators and any and all persons or entities involved in any way in preparation of the Website disclaim all responsibility for the legal effects or consequences of the interpretation of the information and/or documents. YOU ARE ENJOINED FROM UTILIZING, DEPENDING ON, COUNTING ON OR INTERPRETING ANY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED ON THE Website AS LEGAL COUNSEL.
We reserve the right to cancel or decline any orders placed for a product listed at an incorrect price. We also reserve the right cancel or decline an order, even if the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card charged. If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Truce will issue a credit to your credit or debit card in the appropriate amount.
