Terms of Service
L4SB.com is a digital commerce website that provides access to resources (e.g., our blog and Knowledge Base) and a means of purchasing both legal and non-legal services from Law 4 Small Business, P.C., a law firm principally located in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the United States of America.
Personal Information and Privacy
If you use this site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, whether or not undertaken by you. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your account credentials or any computer or other device through which your account has or can be accessed. We and our associates reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content published to the Site.
We do not knowingly collect, by any means, personal information from persons under the age of thirteen (13) years. If you are under eighteen (18) years, you may use the Site only with permission of your parent or guardian.
You may request a cancellation of your subscriptions or of purchased Services at any time by submitting a written request to L4SB via email or postal mail. For monthly or yearly subscriptions, your cancellations must be received prior to their scheduled renewal date. Each subscription will remain active until the end of the subscription period you paid for prior to your termination. Refunds for Services and pro-rated refunds for subscriptions terminated prior to their expiration may be available, subject to our Refund Policy.
You may request a refund for any unused portion of a subscription service or for any unfulfilled legal or non-legal Services you purchase. L4SB may, in its sole and absolute discretion, either approve or deny your request for a refund based on such considerations as, for example and without limitation, whether L4SB has completed or made substantial progress in providing the Services. L4SB will generally approve refund requests for any Services before they are performed. In the event that L4SB approves your request for a refund, your refund may be reduced by any costs, fees, or expenses incurred by L4SB pursuant to or in fulfillment of your order.
Our ability to provide legal and non-legal Services depends in large part on our clients’ full and timely cooperation. If L4SB, in its sole and absolute discretion, determines that you are failing or unwilling to provide cooperation, L4SB may withdraw, terminate, or cancel the Services at any time, with or without notice. Cooperation may include, without limitation:
- Responding to emails, phone calls, and other communications from L4SB
- Providing documentation as may be requested by L4SB
- Providing complete and honest facts about your matter as may be requested by L4SB
- Paying any and all amounts due to L4SB in a timely manner
- Signing any legal documents as many be requested by L4SB or required for completion of the Services you order
Representations of L4SB
Here at Law 4 Small Business, we strive to always provide our clients with a positive experience. If you purchase legal or non-legal Services from us, we agree to:
- Always communicate promptly with you
- Provide timely and relevant updates and information on the status of your order
- Not expense any additional fees not previously agreed upon without your express written consent
- Keep and maintain your records in a safe, private, and confidential manner
Additionally, if you purchase legal Services from us, we agree to:
- Maintain attorney-client confidentiality and uphold attorney-client privilege in all instances permitted by law
Authorization by Client
By purchasing legal or non-legal Services from us, you authorize us to act on your behalf to perform the Services purchased. This authorization may be revoked at any time, and you may be entitled to a refund of any amounts paid based on our Cancellation and Refund policies.
Limited Conflicts Waiver
As a law firm, L4SB is bound by the Rules of Professional Conduct in any state in which we provide legal services to check for conflicts of interest that may hinder or preclude our representation of you as a client. These conflicts of interest and our obligations regarding them apply only to the performance of legal services and do not extend to non-legal services. Some conflicts of interest may prevent us from performing the Services you order, while others may simply require a waiver on your part. To the maximum extent allowable by the law and by any applicable Rules of Professional Conduct, you hereby acknowledge the possibility of conflicts of interest arising based on our performance of legal Services for you and on your behalf, and you agree to waive any such conflicts of interest to the maximum permissible extent. You also agree to immediately notify L4SB if you identify and past, present, or potential future conflicts of interest which may impact our performance of legal Services. If L4SB identifies a conflict of interest which cannot be waived or which might otherwise prevent our performance of legal Services to you, we will terminate your order and refund any money already paid for those Services.
By purchasing legal or non-legal Services from us, you agree to pay L4SB any fees incurred or approved by you which are not pre-paid during the online purchase process within ten (10) days of receiving an invoice from L4SB. Any amounts not paid within that timeframe may be, in L4SB’s sole and absolute discretion, subject to a late fee in the amount of $100 per month or ten percent (10%) of the unpaid balance due per month, whichever is greater.
By purchasing legal or non-legal Services from us, you agree to communicate with L4SB in a timely manner about any charges, fees, or other amounts invoiced to you which you believe are in error. You further agree not to seek a chargeback on any credit card payments already made to L4SB. In the event that you initiate a chargeback, you agree that L4SB may, in its sole and absolute discretion, initiate a chargeback fee of $100 in addition to any amounts incurred by L4SB in collecting the amounts charged back.
Delays by third parties
Both the legal and non-legal services L4SB provides often require submissions to, communications with, or feedback from third parties, including, for example and without limitation, Secretaries of State in those states in which you might request the formation of a corporation or Limited Liability Company. L4SB cannot guarantee processing timeframes or turnaround times for third parties. By purchasing legal or non-legal Services from us, you agree that L4SB shall not be responsible for any delays in providing the Services that are the result of delays by or from third parties.
