The information and materials on this website are provided by Law on Call for general informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice or giving a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances. You should not take, or refrain from taking action based on its content. Law on Call reserves the right to change the following terms and conditions and the services mentioned in this site at any time, in its sole discretion, including to comply with any changes in the law. Images of people may feature current or former personnel or models not connected with Law on Call.

DISCLOSURE NOTICE REGARDING YOUR PRIVACY
LAW ON CALL IS OWNED BY NONLAWYERS
This service is being provided by an entity that is not a traditional legal provider. This entity is owned/managed (fully or partially) by nonlawyers who are not subject to the same rules as lawyers. While Law on Call is owned by nonlawyers, only lawyers and qualified personnel at Law on Call will provide services and legal advice to you. If you have questions, please contact us at 801-889-1980.
ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE, REPRESENTATION, CONFLICT CHECK
Attorney-client privilege, ethics, and confidentiality rules govern the services provided by Law on Call. By your use of Law on Call’s services, you agree and understand that no attorney-client relationship has been formed except as related to the specific matter for which you retained our services. Additionally, no attorney-client relationship exists between you and Law on Call unless we accept your invitation/request to provide services, subject to a conflict investigation, as described below.
While certain federal laws and regulations establish rules and disclosure requirements, they do not limit the attorney-client privilege or the confidentiality rules for information provided to attorneys. The privilege and confidentiality rules are governed by state law, the rules imposed on attorneys under state law, and ethics standards. In circumstances where applicable federal laws might allow disclosure, we will continue to follow the stricter non-disclosure rules of attorney-client privilege and client confidentiality.
If you provide unsolicited information to Law on Call through this website, email, over the phone, or through any other medium, the provision of such information does not, and will not, create an attorney-client relationship between you and Law on Call or any of its attorneys. If you provide information or material through this website in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you, or for which we have not agreed to represent you, that information and material may not be privileged or confidential and may not be secure. If you e-mail information to us in connection with any matter, you acknowledge and understand that Internet e-mail may not be secure. Please take this into consideration when sending proprietary, confidential or particularly sensitive information as Law on Call will not be held liable for any such breach or disclosure of such information.
Following your engagement of, or your placement of, an order with Law on Call, Law on Call will conduct a conflict check. We may be required to refuse service in the event of a legal conflict of interest, pursuant to the ethical rules prescribed by the applicable State Bar. A conflict of interest may arise if the service you request involves another Law on Call client and your interests are different than, or adversarial to, the other Law on Call client. In such event, Law on Call will notify each client of the conflict of interest, and, unfortunately, Law on Call may be required to deny service to either or both clients. Law on Call will not be considered bound by this Agreement, and no attorney-client relationship shall be formed until it is determined, by Law on Call, that no conflict of interest exists.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND OWNERSHIP
Law on Call, or its owners, affiliates or subsidiaries, owns all right, title and interest, in and to all Intellectual Property Rights (as defined below) in the Services and websites, and these Terms do not grant you any rights to our Intellectual Property or Intellectual Property Rights.
