Thank for visiting https://www.Millerhaga.com (“Site”) which is owned by Miller Haga Law Group LLP (“we”, us”, or “Miller Haga”).
We may periodically change these Terms, so please check them from time to time as your continued use of the Site signifies your acceptance of any changed terms. These Terms contain provisions that limit our liability to you.
All materials have been prepared for general information purposes only to permit you to learn more about our firm, our services and the experience of our attorneys.

NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP OR LEGAL ADVICE
No attorney-client relationship between you and Miller Haga is or may be created by your access to or use of the Site or any information contained on or through it. The only way to become our client is through a mutual agreement in writing as described below. Further, none of the information on the Site constitutes legal advice, nor does it necessarily reflect the opinions of the Firm, our attorneys or our clients. You should not act upon any such information without first seeking qualified professional counsel on your specific matter. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon Site communications or advertisements.
You also should not rely upon the transmission of an e-mail message to an attorney through this Site to create an attorney-client relationship. The transmission or exchange of information will not do so. Without an attorney-client relationship in the matter, we cannot assure you that your communications will be privileged or (unless we otherwise agree in a specific case) that we will treat them as such. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information until you speak with one of our attorneys and obtain prior written authorization to send that information to us.
PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO OBTAIN LEGAL ADVICE OR COUNSEL
If you are interested in asking us to represent you, please call us, email us, or otherwise contact us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. The telephone number for our office is listed on the Site. If you submit information to us by email or otherwise, you acknowledge that it will not be considered to be confidential absent an express written agreement by Miller Haga to maintain your information in confidence. We reserve the right to decline any representation, and may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with any of our current or former clients.

Please read this section carefully as it affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and discovery is more limited. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of these Terms.
For all disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first send a written description of your claim to us via certified mail sent to 23901 Calabasas Road, Suite 2001, Calabasas, CA 91302, Attention: Managing Partner, to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute.

WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND JURY TRIALS
Please read this section carefully as it affects rights that you may otherwise have.
You and we each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
Except with respect to principles of conflicts of laws, any dispute arising from these Terms or from any other use of this Site shall be resolved in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The exclusive venue for any claim, action, lawsuit, or other proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be Los Angeles County in the State of California.
