Use of the Website Does not Create an Attorney/Client Relationship
DC Refers is not a law firm and is not engaged in the practice of law. DC Refers does not provide legal services, legal representation, recommendations of lawyers (and/or mediators), or legal advice of any kind. Lawyers and Mediators on the panel are not employees or agents of DC Refers.
Your use of our website, including but not limited to requesting a consultation or referral to one of the listed lawyers, does not create attorney-client relationships with DC Refers. When Users initiate contact with another User via the website and that results in an attorney-client relationship being formed at any time, including but not limited to during a consultation facilitated by our Services, DC Refers has no involvement in that relationship nor in any agreements arising out of the relationship. DC Refers does not accept any portion of an attorney’s fees, and we are not liable or responsible for any professional Services provided by or acts or omissions of Users.
DC Refers does not warrant or represent the accuracy of User identities or claims made by Users. We encourage you to research and, where appropriate, request further proof of any identities or claims made by other Users, particularly when entering into an attorney-client relationship. Where Users provide identity-related information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or if DC Refers suspects that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, DC Refers may (but is under no obligation to) suspend or Terminate said Users’ accounts and refuse current or future use of the website.
