I am a lawyer but I’m not your lawyer!

The Brenke Group, LLC, doing business as TheLawTog® (“TheLawTog”) provides an online legal portal to help customers identify business and legal problems commonly encountered by individuals in the photography industry.  TheLawTog is not a law firm and does not and will not perform services performed by an attorney.  TheLawTog is NOT a substitute for the advice of an attorney.  Instead, TheLawTog provides templates to individuals who chose to prepare their own legal and/or business documents or submit templates to licensed attorneys for modification.  Communications between you and TheLawTog are protected by ourPrivacy Policy, but are not protected by any legal privilege, including the attorney-client privilege or work product doctrine.  TheLawTog cannot provide legal advice nor draft specific legal forms for a specific entity, individual or situation.  The legal forms and templates contained herein are for general use only.  TheLawTog cannot provide any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation to you about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies.

While TheLawTog strives to keep its legal contract templates current, accurate and up-to-date, TheLawTog cannot guarantee that all the information available at thelawtog.com (including related domains and subdomains) (the “Sites’), or information provided in templates and products obtained from TheLawTog, is current at all times or in all areas.  TheLawTog provides general documents we hope will be helpful to those of you who have chosen to complete your own legal documents.  While TheLawTog makes an effort to keep our legal documents current and updated, because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, TheLawTog can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction.  Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, TheLawTog encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.

Nothing contained in the Sites or available through the products, materials and services of TheLawTog is intended to form an attorney-client relationship. Your interaction with TheLawTog in any capacity does not form such a relationship. TheLawTog’s performance of services related to those offered through the Sites, information provided on the Sites, and products sold through the Sites likewise does not create an attorney-client relationship in any particular circumstance.

In addition, from time to time, TheLawTog may introduce you to licensed attorneys through various referral methods.  However, at no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with TheLawTog due to these complimentary services, for which TheLawTog does not take any fee or engage in any profit-sharing.  Whether or not you choose to pursue such referral or related legal services is entirely your decision and is provided by TheLawTog only as a courtesy.

Finally, The Law Tog does not intend to create any attorney-client relationship and your use of TheLawTog’s Sites, templates and other services, products and resources does not create an attorney-client relationship. If you have any questions about the nature of TheLawTog’s services or any of our terms or policies

Here is a cliff notes for you:

  • No refunds/exchanges on digital products
  • There is an expiration date on email links – but you can log into www.thelawtog.com/my-account/ to get your products
