attorney-client relationship or privilege is created with UpLaw.

recommendation about my legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or
strategies, I will not proceed with this purchase, and any purchase that I do make will be
null and void.
3. I understand that these Terms require the use of arbitration on an individual basis to

(ii) Limitations. If you would like additional advice, consultations, or services from
1-800Accountant beyond your initial thirty minute telephone consultation, you may purchase

12. Future Products and Services. If I choose to add a product or service to my order
subsequent to this initial purchase, these Terms of Service will apply to that additional

13. Abandoned Orders. My purchase allows me to create my own legal documents. I understand
that, other than as required by applicable law, I shall have no right to cancel, request a
cash refund or obtain store credit for any undelivered order after 120 days have elapsed
from the purchase date unless UpLaw is at fault. All itemization of fees are displayed for
convenience only. Delivered orders shall be governed by the UpLaw Satisfaction Guarantee.

service this order.
14. Exchanges. I understand that I may request an exchange of one product for a different

of the original item, less any filing fees, taxes or other third-party costs, will be
credited to my UpLaw account. Any price difference between the original order and the
replacement order or, if a replacement order is not completed within 60 days of purchase,
the full original purchase price (in each case less any filing fees, taxes or other
third-party costs) will be credited to my original form of payment. If I paid for my
original order by check, I understand that UpLaw will mail a check for the applicable amount
to my billing address.
15. Suspended Accounts. If UpLaw encounters evidence of suspicious activity in connection
with my account, including, but not limited to, evidence that my account is being used by
someone who is not authorized to do so, I acknowledge that UpLaw, in its sole discretion,
may opt to temporarily disable my account for a reasonable amount of time in order to
investigate. In the event that UpLaw disables my account, I understand that, absent a
subpoena or court order, no information about my account will be provided to anyone outside
UpLaw, including me or any authorized contact, until the investigation is complete.
Additionally, I understand that UpLaw, in its sole discretion, may decide not to send any
documents associated with my account to me or file any such documents with any government
authority, while my account is disabled. I acknowledge that UpLaw will not be liable for any
delays caused by these policies and procedures.
16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling
our Customer Care Center at (800) 773-0888. In the unlikely event that the UpLaw Customer
Care Center is unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if UpLaw has not
been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we
each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court
rather than in a court of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in
court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more
limited discovery than a court does, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any
arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and
class actions are not permitted. While in some instances, upfront costs to file an
arbitration claim may exceed similar costs to bring a case in court, for any non-frivolous
claim that does not exceed $75,000, UpLaw will pay all costs of the arbitration. Moreover,
in arbitration you may recover attorney's fees from UpLaw to the same extent or more as you
would in court. The arbitrator shall apply the same limitations period that would apply in
Under certain circumstances (as explained below), UpLaw will pay you more than the amount of
the arbitrator's award and will pay your attorney (if any) his or her reasonable attorney's
fees if the arbitrator awards you an amount greater than what UpLaw offered you to settle
You may speak with independent counsel before using this Site or completing any purchase.
(a) UpLaw and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single
arbitrator. The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be
broadly interpreted. It applies, without limitation, to:
claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether
based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory;
claims that arose before these or any prior Terms (including, but not limited to, claims
relating to advertising);
claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are
not a member of a certified class; and
claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to "UpLaw," "you," and "us"
include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, employers, business
partners, shareholders, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all
authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under these Terms
or any prior agreements between us. Beneficiaries include, but are not limited to, those
named in an estate planning document.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims
court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of
federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against
us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and UpLaw are each
waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These Terms
evidence a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal
Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This
arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms.
(b) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a
written Notice of Dispute ("Notice") to the other party. A Notice to UpLaw should be
addressed to: Notice of Dispute, General Counsel, UpLaw.com, Inc., 101 North Brand Blvd.,
11th Floor, Glendale, CA 91203 (the "Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the
nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought
("Demand"). If UpLaw and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days
after the Notice is received, you or UpLaw may commence an arbitration proceeding. During
the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by UpLaw or you shall not be
disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to
which you or UpLaw is entitled.
You may download or copy a form Notice from http://www.uplaw.us/arbitration-forms.pdf.
You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the American Arbitration
Association ("the AAA") website at www.adr.org.
(c) After UpLaw receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration,
it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for
more than $75,000. (Currently, the filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is $200,
but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this
fee, UpLaw will pay it directly after receiving a written request at the Notice Address.)
The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the
American Arbitration Association, as modified by these Terms, for all claims under $75,000
and the applicable rules as determined by the AAA for all claims of or above $75,000, and
will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by
calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. (You may obtain information about the arbitration process
directed to non-lawyers, including information about providing notice to UpLaw, at
http://www.uplaw.us/arbitration-information.pdf.) The arbitrator is bound by these Terms.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope,
enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope,
enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to decide. Unless
UpLaw and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or
parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose
whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the
arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA
Rules. If you choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond
only by telephone or submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine
whether you have a right to a hearing. The parties agree that in any arbitration of a
dispute or claim, neither party will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of
fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which
UpLaw was a party. Except as otherwise provided for herein, UpLaw will pay all AAA filing,
administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the
notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of
your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper
purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)),
then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree
to reimburse UpLaw for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your
obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which
you seek relief valued at more than $75,000 (excluding attorney’s fees and expenses), the
payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
(d) For claims under $75,000, if, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits
of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of UpLaw's
last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then UpLaw will:
pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 ("the alternative payment"), whichever is
pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorney's fees, and reimburse any expenses
(including expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for
investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the "attorney's payment").
If UpLaw did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was
selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and the
attorney's fees, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The
arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of
fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney's fees at any time during the
proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling
on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is
greater than the value of UpLaw’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall
include in his or her calculations only the value of any attorney’s fees or expenses you
reasonably incurred in connection with the arbitration proceeding before UpLaw’s settlement
(e) The right to attorney's fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any
right to attorney's fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would
be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the
arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of
attorney's fees or costs. Although under some laws UpLaw may have a right to an award of
attorney's fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration proceeding, UpLaw will not
seek such an award for claims under $75,000.
(f) The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking
relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's
individual claim. YOU AND UPLAW AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN
YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED
CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL.
Further, unless both you and UpLaw agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more
than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or
class proceeding. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court could award that is
individualized to the claimant and would not affect other customers. Neither you nor we may
seek non-individualized relief that would affect other customers. If a court decides that
applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph's limitations as to a
particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the
arbitration and may be brought in court.
(g) If the amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive
relief, either party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by AAA by
a written notice of appeal within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written
arbitration award. An award of injunctive relief shall be stayed during any such appeal. The
members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected according to AAA rules. The
three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of
the date of the appealing party's notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator
panel shall be final and binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under
(h) Notwithstanding any provision in the applicable Terms to the contrary, we agree that if
we make any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to any notice
address, website link or telephone number provided herein), that change will not apply to
any dispute of which we had written notice on the effective date of the change. Moreover, if
we seek to terminate this arbitration provision, any such termination will not be effective
until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination is provided to you,
and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the date of termination.
17. Installment Plan.
(a) Qualification. The UpLaw Installment Plan (the "Installment Plan") is available as a
purchase option for certain UpLaw products priced at $200 or more. Where an Installment Plan
is offered, I acknowledge that UpLaw may charge a small installment fee in connection with
this option. The total amount that will be charged for each installment payment, inclusive
of any fee, will be disclosed to me prior to my election to participate in the Installment
(b) Billing. By opting into the Installment Plan, I am agreeing to make an initial payment
(the "Initial Installment Payment") immediately when I place my order or change my payment
plan. I hereby authorize UpLaw to charge my credit card for two additional installments on
approximately, but not before, the first and second month anniversaries (each an
"Installment Billing Date") of the Initial Installment Payment. If my purchase date is on
the 29th through 31st day of any month, an Installment Billing Date for months with fewer
days will fall on the last day of the month. Each payment will be of the same amount, except
that if the total purchase price does not divide evenly into three parts, my final
installment payment will include all outstanding amounts. I understand that I may pay my
outstanding balance at any time without incurring additional charges.
(c) Default. If my credit card is declined UpLaw may make multiple attempts to bill that
card. If I remain in default on the second payment when the third payment is due, I
authorize UpLaw to charge both the second and third payment amounts to my credit card. If
three attempts to charge my card are unsuccessful and my account balance remains unpaid, I
understand that UpLaw may report information about my account to credit bureaus, and that
late payments, missed payments, and other defaults may be reflected in my credit report. I
understand that UpLaw may restrict my ability to purchase other UpLaw products if I am
delinquent on any payment. I understand that UpLaw may make efforts to collect a delinquent
payment. I understand that if I believe UpLaw has reported inaccurate information to a
consumer reporting agency, I may call the UpLaw Customer Care Center at (800) 773-0888 and
UpLaw will investigate the matter. I understand that UpLaw may accept late or partial
payments, as well as payments that reflect "paid in full" or other restrictive endorsements,
without limiting any of its rights under these Terms of Service.
(d) Store Credit. I understand that if I have a UpLaw store credit, the amount of that store
credit will be deducted from my total purchase price before installment payment amounts are
calculated. Store credit will not count against the $200 minimum purchase price per product.
If I want to apply a store credit issued after my enrollment in the Installment Plan, I may
do so by calling the UpLaw Customer Care Center at (800) 773-0888.
(e) Notice of Automatic Billing. UpLaw may send a reminder email to the email address of
record for my account before my Installment Billing Dates. I acknowledge and agree that this
notice is provided as a courtesy only, and UpLaw is not obligated or required to provide
such notice. I acknowledge and agree that (i) my failure to read, (ii) my inability to
receive, or (iii) the failure of UpLaw to send the email does not create any liability on
the part of UpLaw or any third-party service provider.
(f) Disputed Charges. I understand that if I dispute a charge to my credit card, I should
call the UpLaw Customer Care Center immediately at (800) 773-0888 and UpLaw will investigate
(g) Account Information. I agree to notify UpLaw immediately of any changes to my credit
card number, its expiration date, and/or my billing address, or if my credit card expires or
is cancelled for any reason. I understand that if my failure to provide UpLaw with accurate,
complete, and current information results in delinquent payments, UpLaw may restrict my
ability to purchase other UpLaw products, report information about this delinquency to
credit bureaus, and/or pursue further collection efforts.
(h) Subscription Products. For subscription products offering the Installment Plan, UpLaw
reserves the right to terminate access to subscription benefits 31 days after a missed
18. Filing Fees. Except as otherwise noted, filing and recording fees may include all
mandatory or applicable federal, state, county and local administrative fees, name
reservation fees, initial reports, publication notices, capitalization fees, franchise tax
fees, expedite fees, certified copy fees, walk-in fees, courier fees and other transactional
fees incurred on your behalf by UpLaw.
19. Trademark Filing Fee: The government filing fee for trademarks can range from $225 to
$400 per class. In order to save customers’ money, UpLaw files using either the TEAS RF
system or the TEAS Plus system. Among other things, these require electronic communications
with and responses to the USPTO. The fee you see from UpLaw consists of the government TEAS
RF electronic filing fee of $275. If the stricter "TEAS Plus" system can be used for your
application, UpLaw will use this system. The TEAS Plus system streamlines the U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office (USPTO) review process and has a lower filing fee of $225, but requires
additional UpLaw labor to process. If we are able to use the TEAS Plus system for your
application, UpLaw will still charge $275, of which $225 will be allocated to the USPTO fee
and $50 to a UpLaw processing fee. Whichever filing system used, if you later decide that
you do not want to communicate with the USPTO via email, you do not want to file responses
and documents electronically with the USPTO, or if the USPTO determines that you do not fit
the applicable filing and examination requirements, the USPTO may charge you an extra $125
processing fee per class. This fee, if any, will be assessed directly by the USPTO. UpLaw
will not pay it on your behalf.
20. Trademark, Copyright, and Patent Submitted Material. As part of an order for certain
trademark, copyright, and patent products, I may be required to submit to UpLaw materials –
such as specimens, drawings, or copies of my work – in order for it to complete my order and
submit my document(s) to the relevant government office. Furthermore, I understand that
while it may retain digital copies of my submission, UpLaw does not retain physical copies
of my submissions and will not return those materials to me. All physical materials that
UpLaw does not submit to government offices as part of my application will be securely
21. Authority to File Trademark, Copyright, and Patent Applications.
(a) Trademark and Patent. By placing my order, I give UpLaw the express authority to file my
application with the USPTO. After placing my order, UpLaw may send me material to review or
contact me for information regarding my order. In either case, if I do not respond to UpLaw
within 7 days, it may file my application to avoid filing delays. I understand that I may be
contacted by the USPTO for other information after my application has been filed.
(b) Trademark TEAS Electronic Filing and Communications. UpLaw may authorize the USPTO, on
my behalf, to contact me at the email address I have provided in my order. I agree to submit
documents and communications electronically using the USPTO TEAS system. I understand that
if I fail to comply with these requirements, the USPTO may charge me an additional $125
processing fee per class and that UpLaw will not pay it on my behalf.
(c) Copyright. By placing my order, I give UpLaw the express authority to file my
application with the U.S. Copyright Office. After placing my order, UpLaw may send me
material to review or contact me for information regarding my order. In either case, if I do
not respond to UpLaw within 60 days, it may file my application to avoid filing delays. I
understand that I may be contacted by the U.S. Copyright Office for other information after
my application has been filed.
22. UpLaw Trademark Search.
Each UpLaw trademark search includes information about "active" federal trademarks (i.e.,
those displaying a status of "LIVE" "PENDING," "PENDING - INITIALIZED," "PENDING - PASSED BY
EXAMINER," "PUBLISHED FOR OPPOSITION," "ALLOWED - INTENT TO USE," "PENDING - SUSPENDED," or
"REGISTERED") as available in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website database
at the time the search is conducted. A UpLaw trademark search may not include information
about "inactive" trademarks (i.e., those displaying a status of "DEAD," "ABANDONED,"
"ABANDONED - MISASSIGNED SERIAL NUMBER," "ABANDONED - NO STATEMENT OF USE," "ABANDONED -
VOLUNTARY," "CANCELLED," "CANCELLED - SEC. 8," "CANCELLED - SEC. 18," or "EXPIRED") although
marks with these statuses can, in certain circumstances, affect the registrability of your
mark and/or your ability to use it in commerce. Active trademarks are those either currently
pending or registered and presumed up-to-date with the USPTO, and can be used as a bar to a
new trademark registration. Generally, inactive marks will not be used to bar a new
trademark registration, although an abandoned application can be revived under certain
circumstances. Moreover, an individual may claim common law rights because of its commercial
use of a trademark. Without limitation, UpLaw accepts no responsibility or liability for any
impact that any inactive application or registration, or common law use, may have on your
registration or trademark.
UpLaw strives to provide customers with the most thorough and up-to-date search results
through the best available technology and trained search specialists. Accordingly, I
understand that it takes all reasonable steps to ensure that the accuracy and completeness
of searches is the best possible using its resources, including existing databases and
personnel. For due diligence purposes, trademark customers should thoroughly examine the
search report and review to ensure that they are satisfactory and accurate before making any
decisions regarding their trademark(s).
23. Legal Forms. If you have purchased a Legal Form from UpLaw, the following provisions
apply to you:
(a) License. UpLaw grants you a nonexclusive, nontransferable worldwide right to use the
legal form(s) you have purchased. This license allows you to access, download, use, and edit
the legal form(s) you have purchased for your personal use. You may not: (i) license,
sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute, or otherwise make available to any
third party the legal form(s); or (ii) modify, reproduce, reverse engineer, or make
derivative works based on, referring to, or exploiting the legal form(s) or its source code,
except for modifications to the forms for your personal use. All rights not expressly
granted to you are reserved by UpLaw and its licensors.
(b) No Guarantee. UpLaw does not guarantee that any Legal Form provided is suitable for a
particular purpose, or that any Legal Form provided is accurate, reliable, complete or
timely. The Legal Forms provided are for information purposes only, and should not be relied
upon as legal advice.
24. UpLaw Divorce. If you have purchased UpLaw Divorce, the following provisions apply to
(a) Service Provider. You acknowledge and agree that UpLaw does, or may, work with
third-party providers and sub-providers of our choice to provide some or all of the UpLaw
Divorce services. You acknowledge and agree that any such third-parties may provide UpLaw
Divorce services to you.
25. Delivery. I understand that UpLaw uses a variety of methods to deliver finished
products. For products delivered via physical shipment, I understand that UpLaw uses a
variety of carriers for each shipping option and will choose a delivery method for the
shipping option and address I designate. If I select overnight delivery or two-day delivery,
I agree that UpLaw may use air or ground shipping as necessary to get my items to me within
the promised time frame. The shipping fee indicated does not necessarily represent the
actual amount paid by UpLaw to the carrier chosen for the delivery of my order. It may
include, in addition to the fees paid to the carrier, UpLaw or third party handling and
processing fees. For products delivered electronically, I understand that I will be notified
via email when my product is complete and available for download. I understand that I may
access my product by logging in to My Account.
26. Reviews. After your purchase, you may receive an email survey request from UpLaw. You
may also write a review on the Site. If you complete the survey or submit a review, your
opinions may be posted, in whole or in part, on the Site or used in marketing material. The
review may be accompanied by limited identifying information, such as your first name and
last initial, the product you purchased, your gender, city and/or state, and age range.
27. Text messages and SMS Programs. UpLaw, at its sole discretion, may offer the following
SMS/text message based programs:
UpLaw Member Alerts: When available, you may opt-in to receive SMS/text messages by
