The information presented by ClassActing (“CA”) on our website currently located at www.classacting.com (the “Site”), including, but not limited to, informational articles, other text/images, and on-site or off-site links, has not been prepared, endorsed, or reviewed by any form of licensed legal professional, including, but not limited to, an attorney.
Nothing on the Site should be taken as legal advice, but instead should act as a resource in providing general information that may be useful to members of the general and legal public.
The Site is not published, organized, distributed, or released by an attorney, licensed medical professional, or physician. CA is not a law firm and CA is not acting as your attorney.
All visitors are encouraged to consult with a licensed attorney in all legal matters.
CA cannot and does not provide legal advice or other advice of any kind, explanation, opinion, or recommendation to you about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies and invites users to consult Law Firms or Attorneys using CA’s Website for so.
The legal information on the Site is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete, or up-to-date.

Establishment of an attorney-client relationship will start on CA’s Site in case you find an agreement.
CA only offers a legal service, or legal representation of any sort through Attorneys and Legal Firms using its service. Attorney-Client relationship is only between certified-registered Attorneys or Law Firms companies and is not to be considered as CA’s responsibility. CA does not practice law, but provide legal services through Law Firms and Attorneys using CA Site. Each user is solely responsible for making his, her or its own selection of counsel. CA charges users a fee to use the service and keeps a portion of any legal fees of Attorneys or Law Firms (only in case of an agreement and only when a relationship between Attorney/Law Firm – Client-User will begin). Attorneys have the obligation to keep the agreements with Users, done on ClassActing.com. After relationship has started (agreement of caring a case-claim-class action) Legal services are strictly between the user and their Attorney-Law Firm. CA is fully aware that the legal services provided by an Attorney will not be free of charge. CA will be in charge for any transaction between users and legal services (covering a part of Attorneys – Law Firms the legal costs).
