To the extent the state bar rules in your jurisdiction require the Firm to designate a principal office and/or a single attorney responsible for this website, the Firm designates its office in Dallas, Texas as its principal office and designates Jason D. Carr as the attorney responsible for this website.
This website may constitute attorney advertising under the laws of some states. The Firm does not intend its site to constitute attorney advertising but recognizes that it may be so considered in certain jurisdictions. Be advised that visiting the website and interacting with the materials provided thereon does not establish an attorney-client relationship, which is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement and complied with the terms thereof as outlined below. Materials and information provided on the website are not indicative of likely results in any particular matter. The Firm cannot guarantee results; past results do not guarantee future results.
Attorney-Client Relationship & Scope of Legal Services
The materials on this website are intended for informational purposes only. The materials on this website are not intended to be, nor should they be interpreted as, legal advice or opinion. You should not consider this information to be an invitation to an attorney client relationship, should not rely on information presented here for any purpose, and should always seek the legal advice of counsel in the appropriate jurisdiction.
Transmission and receipt of the information in this site and/or communication with the Firm via e-mail is not intended to solicit or create, and does not create, an attorney-client relationship between the Firm and any person or entity. We cannot become your attorneys or represent you in any way unless (1) we know that doing so would not create a conflict of interest with any of the clients we represent, and (2) satisfactory arrangements have been made with us for representation. The Firm may decline to provide legal service if a conflict of interest is discovered.
The scope of legal services to be performed by the Firm will be expressly agreed upon in writing by you before any legal services are performed, and do not include any services that have been expressly excluded or are otherwise outside the scope of the written agreement. Once an attorney-client relationship is established in writing, you have the right to terminate the relationships with or without cause at any time. If you decide to terminate the attorney-client relationship, you will only be obligated to pay for the services performed up until the date the cancellation was communicated to the Firm. Any outstanding funds for services not performed will be refunded to you within 14 business days.
Testimonials Posted On This Site Should Not Be Construed As A Guarantee Of Results
Testimonials posted on this website from past clients of the Firm do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your case or legal matter. The outcome of any legal case depends on many different factors, including the facts of the specific case and no attorney can offer a guaranteed positive result in any particular case. Any prior results achieved by an attorney cannot guarantee a similar future outcome.
Transmission of Information
Electronic mail or other communications through this site or otherwise to the Firm or any of its lawyers in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you may not be treated as privileged or confidential. If you choose to contact us through this website, you should be aware that any information transmitted electronically may not be secure.
The content of this website contains general information and may not reflect current legal developments. Such content is designed only to give general information on the developments actually covered. It is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of recent developments in the law, treat exhaustively the subjects covered, provide legal advice or render a legal opinion. Since the law is constantly changing and since the law will vary based on different facts and circumstances, statements on this website regarding the status of a given law or legal issue may not be current or applicable to your particular situation. You should not take any action based on the information in this website.
Although this website may be viewed from any of the 50 United States of America and territories, as well as any country, the Firm primarily practices in the State of Texas. Lawyers named in the website may not be authorized to practice law except in jurisdictions where the Firm maintains offices. The attorneys of the Firm practice law only where licensed to do so, where permitted to do so by virtue of the advice rendered being on issues of Federal law, and where permitted to do so by multijurisdictional practice rules including American Bar Association Model Rule 5.5 and individual state rules modeled after American Bar Association Model Rule 5.5. To the extent the attorneys of the Firm are contacted by potential clients seeking legal services in jurisdictions in which the attorneys are not permitted by these or other means to practice law, the Firm shall decline to provide representation. The Firm does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to CarrTaxLaw.com or upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules. Access to the website from physical locations in jurisdictions in which the attorneys of the Firm are not permitted to practice law is inadvertent and unavoidable due to the nature of internet access; any such access is not intended by the Firm as an advertising effort or an effort to establish a systematic and continuous presence in any jurisdiction in which the attorneys are not permitted to practice law.
Law Office Portal
The Firm provides its clients and potential clients the ability to create a Client Portal Account and access certain attorney-client communications with our office and client documents through a secure personal home page on jdcarrlaw.com. To use a Client Portal Account, you must register on the website by entering certain personal information and request a username and a unique password. Creating a Client Portal Account does not, in and of itself, establish an attorney/client relationship with the Firm.
Any information received by the Firm through the registration process is held in strict confidence. We do not sell or otherwise disclose to third parties any personal information that you provide through CarrTaxLaw.com except as may be required by law or in response to an investigation by law enforcement or other government authorities.
By establishing a Client Portal Account, you acknowledge and agree that in connection with your request for a Client Portal Account, and your use of your Client Portal Account, that you have read and agree to the legal and privacy policies on this page, including use of your Client Portal Account, you have read and understand the security processes that we maintain, and that there are always risks inherent with the transmission, storage, viewing and retrieval of data and files over the internet, including through CarrTaxLaw.com. You are solely and fully responsible for the security of your username and password and for any consequences that arise out of your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your username and password. You must notify the Firm of any unauthorized use of a breach in security of your Client Portal Account. Your right to use your Client Portal Account is personal to you, is for your personal and individual use, and you will not permit any others to use it except those designated as authorized, by you, as account users in the Client Portal Account. The Firm reserves the right to suspend, revoke or terminate your use of CarrTaxLaw.com and/or your Client Portal Account at any time without notice to you.
No fee will be charged or obligation incurred by registering on our online law office. In some situations, funds will not be transferred to the Firm until the legal services you have requested are ready to be accessed and received on your personal portal page. However, most requested services require the upfront payment of the agreed upon fee before the Firm will begin work. After your payment of the agreed upon price is confirmed through a Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) compliant credit card processor, you will have complete access to the legal advice, documents, research or other services provided by the Firm. If further communication with the Firm is required, you may post a separate question regarding the received legal services or request a price quote for additional legal work.
Transactions communicated through our virtual law office application and through your Client Account are conducted over Secure HTTP, which provides you with the highest industry standard protection available on the web. All payments are processed by Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) compliant credit card processors, and no credit card or payment account numbers are stored on our servers.
