The Terms and Conditions of Use (“The Agreement”) are provided by The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky, an online Texas practice managed by attorney Keith Hajovsky, a licensed solo practitioner. The Agreement will govern the use of this website, including all content provided on the website and through access to all online services provided by The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky.
Limitation of Services
While authorities in some jurisdiction may deem this website and this law practice to be an advertisement for legal services in their jurisdiction, this website should not be construed as a solicitation for legal services related to any other states’ laws. This website and this legal practice offer services related to Texas law only.
Confidentiality and the Attorney-Client Relationship
A viewer of this website should be aware that this firm’s duties of confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege may not arise until an attorney has expressly communicated the ability to respond to that viewer. The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky may decline to represent a viewer if a possible conflict of interest is discovered, if the firm believes the prospective client’s legal needs cannot be met appropriately or for other various reasons.
All client information received by The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky is held in strict confidence and will not be released to anyone outside of this practice unless agreed to by the client, or as required under applicable law. In compliance with the relevant professional rules and restrictions of the State Bar of Texas, this practice is bound by stringent professional standards of confidentiality.
Unbundled Legal Services
The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky is not a pre-paid legal service. Rather, it is a predominantly online legal practice where the client is charged a one-time fee for limited legal services related to Texas law. This means that the legal services provided by this law firm only extend to those services that the client has requested and purchased and this law firm has provided. After the client has purchased a service and The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky has agreed to provide it and has completed the work, the client cannot expect this law firm to perform in any additional capacity.
For example, if The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky assists the client in creating Estate Planning documents, it is not the law firm’s responsibility to ensure that the forms are properly filed, to attend a hearing or trial on the client’s behalf, or to provide any other legal services related to that matter beyond the original purchased and provided limited legal services. Likewise, after the client has paid for the requested services and this firm has performed them, The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky will not expect any further payment from the client other than payment for the original requested legal services performed by this law firm.
As with any legal service, The Law Office of Keith Hajovsky cannot guarantee any legal outcome. By purchasing this firm’s services, the client agrees that it remains his/her responsibility to properly and timely file any legal documents and to comply with Texas state and local legal procedures.
