User may discharge Attorneys at any time, upon written notice to Attorneys. Attorney may withdraw from representation of Client (a) with Client's consent, (b) upon court approval, or (c) if no court action has been filed, for good cause and upon reasonable notice to User. Among the acts constituting good cause are User's breach of this Agreement (including User’s failure to pay Attorneys' cost as specified herein), User's refusal to cooperate with Attorneys or to follow Attorneys' advice on a material matter, User's failure to respond to Attorney's letters within thirty (30) days, or any act or circumstance that would render Attorneys' continuing representation of Client unlawful or unethical.
Attorneys and User each agree to sign any documents reasonably necessary to complete Attorneys' discharge or withdrawal.
Any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (except at the option of either party for any application for injunctive relief) shall be finally settled by arbitration in the County of Los Angeles, California under the rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) before a panel of three (3) arbitrators and judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. In this regard, the parties submit to the personal subject matter jurisdiction of the State of California. The arbitration provisions of this Section shall be interpreted according to, and governed by, the Federal Arbitration Act, and any action to enforce any rights hereunder shall be brought exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. EACH PARTY HERETO KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREES THAT ANY SUCH ACTION SHALL BE ADJUDICATED BY AN ARBITRATOR AND WITHOUT A JURY.
The parties may mutually agree upon any procedure for appointing the arbitrators and shall inform the JAMS administrator as to such procedure; however, if all of the parties have not mutually agreed on a procedure for appointing the arbitrators or have not mutually agreed on the designation of the arbitrators within forty-five (45) days after the commencement of the arbitration, each side shall have the option to select one (1) arbitrator, and the JAMS administrator shall unilaterally appoint and designate the presiding arbitrator to complete the three (3) arbitrator panel.
If a party fails to file a statement of defense within the time established by the tribunal without showing sufficient cause for such failure, as determined by the tribunal, or if a party, duly notified, fails to appear at a hearing without showing sufficient cause for such failure, as determined by the tribunal, the tribunal may proceed with the arbitration; or if a party, duly invited to produce evidence or take any other steps in the proceedings fails to do so within the time established by the tribunal without showing sufficient cause for such failure, as determined by the tribunal, the tribunal may make the award on the evidence before it.
The arbitrators may, in the Award, allocate all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrators and the reasonable attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in any dispute concerning attorneys' fees, charges, costs, or expenses incurred subject to the jurisdiction of the State of California, User has the right to elect arbitration pursuant to the fee arbitration procedures of the State Bar of California, as set forth in California Business and Professions Code Section 6200, et seq. Those procedures permit a trial after arbitration, unless the parties agree in writing, after the dispute has arisen, to be bound by the arbitration award. If, after receiving a notice of User’s right to arbitrate, User does not elect to proceed under the State Bar fee arbitration procedures, and file a request for fee arbitration within 30 days, any dispute over fees, charges, costs or expenses, will be resolved by judicial proceedings before any State court located in Los Angeles, California, and the prevailing party in any such action or any proceeding to enforce any provision of this Agreement will be awarded Attorneys' fees and cost incurred in that action or proceeding, including, without limitation, the value of the time spent by Attorneys to prosecute or defend such action (calculated at the hourly rates then normally charged by Attorneys to clients which it represents on an hourly basis).
Because each party is giving up a right, User is encouraged to have an independent lawyer of User's choice review these arbitration provisions before agreeing to them.
By agreeing below, User and Attorneys confirm that they have read and understand the paragraphs in this Section, and voluntarily agree to these provisions. In doing so, User and Attorneys voluntarily give up important constitutional rights to trial by judge or jury, as well as rights to appeal. User is advised that User has the right to have an independent lawyer of User's choice review these arbitration provisions, and this entire agreement, prior to signing this Agreement.
User shall provide Cislo & Thomas LLP with written notice of any change of address or e-mail within ten (10) days of any change of address or e-mail.
This Agreement will govern all legal services performed by Attorney on behalf of User commencing with the date Attorney first performed services. The date at the beginning of the Agreement is for reference only. Even if this Agreement does not take effect, User will be obligated to pay Attorney the reasonable value of any services Attorney may have performed for User.
(a) This Agreement is agreed to voluntarily and without any duress or undue influence on the parties or their officers, employees, agents or attorneys. Neither party is relying upon any inducements, promises or representations not contained herein made by the other party or any of its officers, employees, agents or attorneys. The parties hereto acknowledge that they have been represented in the litigations for, and in the preparation of this Agreement, by counsel, that they have had this Agreement fully explained to them by such counsel, and that they are aware of its contents and of its legal effect.
(b) Any provision of this Agreement which is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to that jurisdiction, be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability, and shall not in any manner affect the remaining provisions hereof in such jurisdiction or render any other provision of this Agreement invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any other jurisdiction.
(c) This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The parties consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the United States District Court for the Central District of California or the Superior Court for the County of Los Angeles.
(d) This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties as to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except by a written amendment signed by an officer of each party, except as specified herein.
(e) No party has heretofore assigned, transferred, granted, or purported to assign, transfer or grant, or by operation of law, been required to assign, transfer or grant, any of the claims, counterclaims and defenses disposed of by this Agreement.
(f) Each party agrees that it could have cooperated in the drafting and preparation of the Agreement. Hence, the agreement shall not be construed against any particular party. Should User want different terms and conditions, he/she needs to contact Attorneys to consider any changes requested.
(g) Each party represents that it has the right, power and authority to execute this Agreement and to thereby become bound by this Agreement and each of the obligations imposed hereby.
THE PARTIES HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE FOREGOING TERMS AND AGREE TO THEM, AS OF THE DATE ATTORNEY FIRST PROVIDED SERVICES. IF MORE THAN ONE USER AGREES BELOW, EACH AGREES TO BE LIABLE JOINTLY AND SEVERALLY FOR ALL OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
If a provision of these terms and conditions is determined by any court or other competent authority to be unlawful and/or unenforceable, the other provisions will continue in effect. If any unlawful and/or unenforceable provision would be lawful or enforceable if part of it were deleted, that part will be deemed to be deleted, and the rest of the provision will continue in effect.
These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between User and Attorneys in relation to use of this website, and supersede all previous agreements in respect of your use of this website.
These terms and conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the State of California, and any disputes relating to these terms and conditions will be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of Central District of California.
