2. We are not a law firm and do not provide legal advice
We offer an online will service called Willful (the “Services” or “Willful”) through the website located at willful.co (the “Site”). WILLFUL IS NOT A LAW FIRM AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL ADVICE. Our basic service (the “Basic Service”) allows the End User to create a will online using self-service “fill in the blank” forms and Power of Attorney documents online. If you buy or download a form or document from the Site, you understand that your purchase, download and/or use of a form document is neither legal advice nor the practice of law. Our Services do not substitute the advice of a lawyer and your specific needs or situation may require legal advice. If your matter is too complex to be addressed by our Services, you need to consult a licensed lawyer and you should not use our Services.
We may also provide additional services that you may elect to purchase, such as a subscription to store and make changes to your documents or a premium subscription with access to additional features (the “Optional Services”). The details of these Optional Services will be disclosed on the Site. The Basic Service may also include the ability to store and make changes to your documents depending on the particulars of your package. The Basic Service and any Optional Services are referred to collectively as the “Service” or the “Services”.

We strive to keep the documents and other materials available through the Services, including any descriptions, information and other help resources (collectively, the “Document Materials”) current and up-to-date; however, they are not legal advice and, due to rapidly changing laws and regulations from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, our documents are not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information or legal tool like the kind we provide can fit every circumstance. We do not review the Document Materials or any information you input for accuracy or legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. You understand that our providing of the Services to you is neither legal advice nor the practice of law, and that the Document Materials, while tailored to the inputs you have given in the online form, are not customized to your particular needs. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed lawyer in your area.
If, prior to your use of any legal document, you believe that we gave you any legal advice, opinion or recommendation about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies, you must not use these documents, and any use of these documents is done at your own risk.
