Terms and Conditions of Use 


By using this website, you accept these Terms and Conditions of Use. Legal Aid Justice Center (LAJC) reserves the right to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these terms and conditions at any time. Please check these Terms and Conditions of Use periodically for changes. Your continued use of this website following the posting of changes to the Terms and Conditions of Use will mean that you accept the changes. 

Not legal advice  

This website provides information to help low-income Virginia residents with legal problems. But information about legal matters is not the same as legal advice. Legal advice involves the application of law to an individual’s specific circumstances, and that can only happen after an attorney-client relationship is established. The information on this website is not a substitute for and does not replace the advice or representation of a licensed attorney.  

No attorney-client relationship; information not privileged 

The use of this website does not create an attorney-client relationship between LAJC and any user. LAJC enters into attorney-client relationships only after (i) personal contact between a potential client and LAJC staff, and (ii) LAJC determines that it is willing and able to accept representation. As a result, information that you provide to us through this web site will not be treated as confidential under the attorney-client privilege.  

No representations or warranties 

Although LAJC endeavors to make sure the information on the website is accurate and up to date, LAJC makes no claim as to the accuracy of this information and is not responsible for any consequences that may result from the use of this website. Information provided on this website is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including without limitation warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or noninfringement. You must consult with a licensed attorney if you want assurance that the information on the website and your interpretation of it are up-to-date and appropriate for your particular situation.  

Other websites 

To the extent that links within this website lead to other sites, LAJC does not assume any responsibility for those other sites, and does not endorse, sponsor, or necessarily approve of the contents of those sites. These links are provided only as a convenience. 


LAJC may collect information that users of this website voluntarily provide – such as email addresses, phone numbers, or feedback and stories relevant to one of our campaigns. That information will be used only in ways that are consistent with a reasonable understanding of the purpose for which it was provided. LAJC will not otherwise share, sell, or disclose such information to third parties without consent, except when the request is initiated by law enforcement authorities and when LAJC is ordered to do so by a court, or when we believe it is necessary to assert or protect our legal or intellectual property rights. 

This website may also collect information passively, using cookies. A cookie is a small text file that writes to your hard drive.
