Introduction

Hello, and welcome to our Terms and Conditions of Use.

We hope that if you’re a client in search of a lawyer for your legal needs that you will find one. And if you’re a lawyer that through us you will connect with clients worldwide.

Thanks for choosing Neo lawyers (“Legistz LLC”, “neolawyers.com”, “we”, “us”, “our”). By signing up or otherwise using the neolawyers.com service, websites, and software applications (together, the “Neo lawyers Service” or “Service”), or accessing any content or material that is made available by Neo Lawyers through the Service (the “Content”) you are entering into a binding contract with the Neo Lawyers entity.

Your agreement with Neo lawyers includes these Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms”) and our Privacy Policy. (The Terms, Privacy Policy, and any additional terms that you agree to, as discussed in the Entire Agreement section, are referred to together as the “Agreements”.). You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the Neo lawyers Service or consume any Content.

Our Services & Paid Subscriptions

Neo lawyers provides a marketplace for lawyers to connect with clients from anywhere in the world. Certain Neo lawyers services are provided to you free-of-charge. These include client’s memberships and free membership for lawyers. Other services require payment before you can access them. The Neo lawyers’ services that may be accessed after payment are currently referred to as the “Pro Lawyers” (“Paid Subscriptions”). The Neo lawyers’ service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Free Service”.

The Pro Lawyers membership is available to all lawyers. While we encourage lawyers to sign up for the Pro membership service due to some of the exclusive features that are available to Pro members, a lawyer is not mandated to sign up. We will explain the various features that are available in each of the account when you are signing up for the services. As a lawyer, if you signed up for the Pro membership account, you’re free to cancel your Pro membership and downgrade to the free membership at any time. You will not be required to enter into any long term contract that may prevent you from terminating your membership at any time.

Changes to the Agreements

Occasionally we may, in our discretion, make changes to the Agreements. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the Service or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate the Agreements at any time by canceling your account with us.

Rights we grant you

We may, in our sole discretion and without notice, start, stop or modify any regulation or enforcement measures at any time.

Payments, and cancellations

Paid Subscriptions for the Pro membership level can be purchased either by (1) paying a monthly subscription fee; or (2) pre-payment giving you access to the Pro membership features for 30 days after which you can downgrade to the free membership level. Paid subscription is only available to lawyers and law firms. Client’s access to the website is free of charge, except for certain features that a client is required to pay in order to use them. If you have purchased a Paid Subscription for only one month, your Paid Subscription will automatically terminate at the end of the 30 days Period.

When you register for a Paid Subscription, you consent to get access to Neo lawyers Pro features immediately. If after you had registered for a Pro membership account, you changed your mind for any or no reason and wishes to terminate your Pro membership account, you’re free to do so. The following will apply depending on when you changed your mind. (1) If you terminate your Pro membership account on the 7th day of your Pro membership, you will receive a full refund of all monies paid. (2) If you terminate your account on the 8th day of your Pro membership, you will not receive a refund. Your Pro membership will remain active until the end of the billing circle and then will automatically terminate and downgrade your account to free membership. Your card will not be charged again until you re-activate your Pro membership.

Your monthly Pro membership subscription with Neo lawyers will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, unless you cancel your Pro membership subscription through your subscription page before the end of the current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period, and you will be downgraded to the Free membership.

Neo lawyer may change the price for the Pro membership subscriptions and any other paid service from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Pro Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. However, price changes for other services may take effect immediately at the time of the changes. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Neo lawyers’ services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Neo lawyers’ services prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.
