INTRODUCTION

Amal Khamis is a platform for legal information and self-help. The information provided by us along with the content on our website related to legal matters (“Legal Info”) is provided for your person and does not constitute legal advice. We do not review any information you provide us for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your selection of forms, or apply the law to the facts of your situation.

We are not a Law Firm and your use of this service does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. You understand that only a licensed Attorney can provide legal advice. Neither Amal Khamis nor any Legal Information provided by Amal Khamis is a substitute for legal advice from a qualified attorney licensed to practice in an appropriate jurisdiction.

Unless you are otherwise represented by an attorney, including a Listed Attorney, you represent yourself in any legal matter you undertake through our Services.

Amal Khamis is not a “Lawyer Referral Service”. The directory of lawyers published on our website is provided to the public free of charge and is for informational purposes only. Amal Khamis does not endorse or recommend any attorney nor does it make any warranty as to the qualifications or competency of any attorney.

INTERACTIONS WITH ATTORNEYS

When you use our Platform, you will have the opportunity to initiate contact with an attorney (a “Listed Attorney”). Listed Attorneys are neither employees nor agents of Amal Khamis. Listed Attorneys are third-party independent contractors who carry their own malpractice insurance and have agreed to provide online answers, limited consultations or other basic legal services to users of Amal Khamis. Communicating with a Listed Attorney through Amal Khamis is NOT required. However, if you choose to communicate with a Listed Attorney through Amal Khamis, please note the following (a) When you contact a Listed Attorney through Amal Khamis, he or she may provide you with an initial consultation, legal review of your forms or documents, or answers to your legal questions. Please note that any such interaction is intended to be a starting point for dealing with a legal matter or addressing basic legal questions and any attorney-client relationship formed during the course of that interaction is strictly between you and the Listed Attorney (b) When you contact a Listed Attorney through Amal Khamis, he or she may ask you for some information regarding you and your legal affairs in order to properly address your questions. By using our Services, you consent to sharing such personally identifying information for the purpose securing legal advice with both the requesting attorney and with Amal Khamis. Amal Khamis will have access to any communications submitted through our platform for fulfilment and quality assurance purposes (c) When you contact a Listed Attorney through Amal Khamis, you control the both the duration and depth of the interaction. Any attorney-client relationship formed during the course of that interaction may, at your option, either (i) end when the interaction with the Listed Attorney ends, or (ii) continue if you wish to engage the Listed Attorney for further legal services. (d) If you wish to create an attorney-client relationship with a Listed Attorney that extends beyond your use of our Services, that relationship will be on whatever terms you establish with the attorney in question. Those terms do NOT involve Amal Khamis and, except for pre-negotiating special discounts for our members, we do not set, control or influence them. For example, the Listed Attorney may ask you to sign a formal representation agreement regarding the scope of work they will perform, the cost of their legal services, and the handling of any out of pocket expenses they may incur. (e) Listed Attorneys may be compensated by Amal Khamis for Services performed on your behalf, however, Amal Khamis does not receive any share of legal fees collected by any attorneys in our network. In all cases, Amal Khamis will not influence or interfere in any way with any attorney’s independent professional judgment. Listed Attorneys reserve the right to refuse to perform legal services on your behalf in their sole discretion.
