Privacy

 

For information about how Bevel Law uses your personal information, please see the Privacy Policy.

 

No Attorney-Client Relationship

 

Merely accessing or using the Sites does not make you a client of Bevel Law. In other words, using the Sites does not create an attorney-client relationship. The information on the Sites is intended as general information only; it is not intended as legal advice and you should not treat it as legal advice. In addition, please be aware that the information that you send to Bevel Law via the Sites may not be considered privileged or confidential. 

 

Sessions 

 

Bevel Law offers services via the Sites in the form of Advice Sessions and Contract Sessions (the “Sessions”). The Sessions may be discontinued, limited, or restricted at any time without notice. In addition, the description, price, or nature of the Sessions may be altered at any time without notice. Bevel Law shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any change or termination of the Sessions.

 

Booking Fee

 

A Session is a reserved time for you to consult with an attorney. The booking fee covers your reservation only and does not include any work before or after. Once your reservation is over, your relationship with Bevel Law ends. Any additional services must be purchased separately.  

 

Once your Session is booked, you will receive an email with a link that allows you to reschedule. Rescheduling is only permitted using the link.  There are no refunds for no-shows.

If you become a Bevel Law client, you may be provided with a client portal. In such case, it is your responsibility to safeguard your login credentials. You must treat the login credentials as confidential and must not share them with third parties.
