ARBITRATION.

THIS SECTION IS AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND PRODUCTS OF ROBERT B. OGLETREE PLLC, EMPLOYER SAFETY SOLUTIONS LLC, THEIR ATTORNEYS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES. DO NOT RETAIN THE SERVICES OF ROBERT B. OGLETREE PLLC, VIEW THE VIDEOS ON THIS WEBSITE, VIEW THE DOCUMENTS ON THIS WEBSITE, PAY TO VIEW ANY TRAINING VIDEO, OR PAY TO DOWNLOAD ANY DOCUMENTS FROM THIS WEBSITE, OR OTHERWISE USE OUR SERVICES OR PRODUCTS IN ANY WAY IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.

YOU AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL HAVE NO OTHER LEGAL REMEDY, EXCEPT SMALL CLAIMS COURT, SHOULD YOU HAVE A CLAIM AGAINST ROBERT B. OGLETREE PLLC, EMPLOYER SAFETY SOLUTIONS LLC, THEIR ATTORNEYS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, MEMBERS, OFFICERS AND AFFILIATES (hereafter also collectively referred to as “ROBERT B. OGLETREE PLLC” or “US” or “OUR”). THIS MEANS YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATE "ALL" DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND ROBERT B. OGLETREE PLLC AND EMPLOYER SAFETY SOLUTIONS LLC AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS INTENDED TO BE BROADLY INTERPRETED. IT INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:

  • claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;

  • claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);

  • claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a Member of a certified class; and

  • claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

References to Robert B. Ogletree PLLC and Employer Safety Solutions LLC, our and us includes subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under this or prior Agreements between you and us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Trade Commission. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Robert B. Ogletree PLLC and Employer Safety Solutions LLC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action forever. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.

In the event we are found liable for any cost or damage suffered by you, the liability of Robert B. Ogletree PLLC, Employer safety Solutions LLC and their employees, agents, members, officers and affiliates shall be limited to the Legal Fees or purchase price paid associated with the particular agreement in question. The remedies set forth in this paragraph and termination of this Agreement as specified above are your exclusive remedies for claims or damages arising out of or relating in any way to this agreement or the services provided hereunder. To the extent permitted by law, our liability for any claim of any kind relating to this agreement or the services and products provided hereunder shall not exceed the amount paid by you to Robert B. Ogletree PLLC and/or Employer Safety Solutions LLC for our services and products during the preceding twelve (12) months.

IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NO CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY MAY BE CONSOLIDATED WITH A DISPUTE OF ANY OTHER PERSON IN ARBITRATION, OR RESOLVED ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS BY A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO COMMENCE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY SUCH COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless a different procedure is required by applicable law, the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes.

A demand for arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement may be made either before or after a lawsuit or other legal proceeding begins. However, any demand for arbitration that is made after a lawsuit or other legal proceeding has begun must be made within 90 days following the service of a complaint, third-party complaint, cross-claim or counterclaim or any answer thereto or any amendment to any of the above.

You understand and agree that before you take a dispute to arbitration under this Agreement, you must first contact our law office and give us an opportunity to resolve this dispute. Information about the arbitration process and the AAA's arbitration rules and its fees are available from the AAA on the Internet at http://www.adr.org.

The cost of any arbitration proceeding shall be split between You and Us. You will pay one half of the filing fee, or $125.00, whichever is less, when the demand for arbitration is made.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you believe the cost of arbitration may be too burdensome, you may seek a waiver of the filing fee under the applicable arbitration rules. If you seek, but not qualify for such waiver, we will consider a written request from you to advance all or part of the filing fee.

The arbitration will be based only on the written submissions of the parties and the documents submitted to the AAA relating to the dispute, unless either party requests that the arbitration be conducted using the AAA's telephonic, online, or in-person procedures (additional charges may apply for these procedures).

BECAUSE YOUR REQUEST AND USE OF OUR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS REQUIRES THAT YOU CONSENT TO ARBITRATION OF YOUR CLAIMS OR DISPUTES, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT OR BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTIVE PROCEEDING, EXCEPT FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT. OTHER RIGHTS THAT EITHER PARTY WOULD HAVE IF THAT PARTY WENT TO COURT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT DISCOVERY OR TO APPEAL, MAY BE LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

The rules of the American Arbitration Association shall govern the arbitration and can be at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.

State Laws Vary

Our lawyers are licensed to practice law only within the states of Mississippi but we affiliate or form relationships with lawyers throughout the United States. We may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country, who form relationships with us, and are experienced in handling such cases. We may also undertake legal representation in certain cases, and will affiliate with other legal counsel located throughout the country to provide legal representation. The laws of each State are different. The Site contains information about general or common rules that apply in some states. The Site may also contain information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state or any particular state. The Statute of Limitations is especially important. Every state has laws called the “statute of limitations” which set a deadline to file a lawsuit. That means that a lawsuit filed too late may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries. Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other states may be longer or shorter. Insurance policies, particularly homeowners insurance, may require that suit be filed within one year of a loss. Some states allow claims against government agencies, but require a written notice very soon after the accident, perhaps within three months. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.

Clients

Only individuals who have entered into a mutually signed retainer agreement with us are our clients (“Clients”).

Legal and Ethical Requirements

We have tried to comply with all legal and ethical requirements in compiling the Site. We welcome comments about our compliance with the applicable rules and will update the Site as warranted, upon learning of any new or different requirements. To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require us to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for the Site, Robert B. Ogletree PLLC designates its office in Jackson, Mississippi (USA), 1640 Lelia Drive, Jackson, MS 39216, and attorney Robert B. Ogletree.

State Advertising Disclosures

Because some material on the Site constitutes lawyer advertising, and the Site may be viewed from anywhere in the United States, particular disclosures are required by the rules of some states. We adopt and make the following disclosures:

Alabama: No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.

Colorado: Colorado does not certify attorneys as specialists in any field.

Florida: The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.

Iowa: The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC: Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This notice is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.

Kentucky and Oregon: THIS IS AN ADVERTISEMENT

Mississippi: The Mississippi Supreme Court advises that a decision on legal services is important and should not be based solely on advertisements.

Missiouri: Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor the Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations.

Nevada: The State Bar of Nevada does not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert.

New Jersey: ATTORNEY ADVERTISEMENT — NOT A REFERRAL SERVICE. Before making your choice of an attorney, you should give this matter careful thought. The selection of an attorney is an important decision.

New Mexico: LAWYER ADVERTISEMENT.

New York: ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Pennsylvania: ATTORNEY ADVERTISEMENT – NOT A REFERRAL SERVICE. Before making your choice of an attorney, you should give this matter careful thought. The selection of an attorney is an important decision.

Tennessee: None of the attorneys in this firm are certified as a Civil Trial, Criminal Trial, Business Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy, Creditor’s Rights, Medical Malpractice, Legal Malpractice, Accounting Malpractice, Estate Planning or Elder Law specialist by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization. Certification as a specialist in all other listed areas is not currently available in Tennessee.

Texas: Unless otherwise stated, our attorneys claiming certification in an area of law are not certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Wyoming: The Wyoming State Bar does not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer’s credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise.

Governing Laws in Case of Dispute; Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Mississippi, USA, without regard to any choice of law principles. Any and all disputes arising hereunder shall be governed as set forth in the Arbitration section herein.

Submissions

You are solely responsible for any information, content, or material you transmit to or through the Site (“Submissions”). You understand that Submissions are considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. Furthermore, you grant us an unrestricted, irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, subliscensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, reproduce, display, publish, publicly perform, transmit, and distribute any Submission, without compensation or accounting to you or anyone else.

Arbitration

As set forth herein above, any and all claims by you arising out of or related to the Site or your use thereof may be resolved only through a binding arbitration proceeding to be conducted under the auspices of the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association in the City of Brandon, Rankin County, Mississippi. Both your agreement to arbitrate all controversies, disputes and claims, and the results and awards rendered through the arbitration, will be final and binding on you and may be specifically enforced by legal proceedings. Arbitration will be the sole means of resolving such controversies, disputes and claims, and you waive your rights to resolve such controversies, disputes and claims by court proceedings or any other means. You agree that judgment may be entered on the award in any court of competent jurisdiction and, therefore, any award rendered shall be binding. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. You understand that by agreeing to arbitration as a mechanism to resolve all controversies, disputes and claims between us, you are waiving certain rights, including the right to bring an action in court, the right to a jury trial, the right to broad discovery, and the right to an appeal. You understand that in the context of arbitration, a case is decided by an arbitrator (one or more), not by a judge or a jury.
