The jurisdictions in which our attorneys are licensed to practice are indicated within the About Us page on satinlegal.com. Satinlegal.com is not intended as advertising or solicitation in any jurisdiction where the site would be so characterized and fails to comply with all applicable laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction. Satin Legal does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to satinlegal.com or upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules.
Virtual Law Office and Client Account/Personal Login Page
Satin Legal provides its clients and potential clients the ability to create a Client Account and access certain attorney-client communications with our office and client documents through a secure portal accessible via satinlegal.com. To utilize a Client Account, you must register on mycase.com by entering certain personal information and request a username and a unique password. Creating a Client Account does not, in and of itself, establish an attorney/client relationship with Satin Legal.
Any information received by Satin Legal 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 satinlegal.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 Account, you acknowledge and agree that in connection with your request for a Client Account, and your use of your Client Account, that you have read and agree to this Terms and Conditions of Use related to satinlegal.com and mycase.com, as applicable, including use of your Client 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 satinlegal.com.

You must notify our office of any unauthorized use of a breach in security of your Client Account. Your right to use your Client Account is personal to you, is for your personal and individual use, and you will not permit any others to use it. Satin Legal reserves the right to suspend, revoke, or terminate your use of satinlegal.com and/or your Client Account at any time without notice to you.
Scope of Legal Services
An attorney-client relationship with prospective clients is established only after an attorney of Satin Legal has expressly communicated the ability to accept representation of your matter and a legal services agreement has been signed. Satin Legal may decline to provide legal service if a conflict of interest is discovered, or if Satin Legal believes for any reason that the prospective client would not be a good fit with the firm. The scope of legal services to be performed by an attorney of Satin Legal 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.
No fee will be charged or obligation incurred by registering on our online law office. In some situations, a client’s funds will not be transferred to Satin Legal until the legal services are received by the client. However, most requested services require the upfront payment of the agreed upon fee before Satin Legal will begin work. After the client’s payment of the agreed upon price is confirmed, the client will have complete access to the legal advice, documents, research, or other services provided by the attorney. If further communication with the attorney is required, the client may post a separate question regarding the received legal services or request a price quote for additional legal work.
Termination of Attorney-Client Relationship
An attorney-client relationship with prospective clients is established only after an attorney of HG has expressly communicated the ability to accept representation of your matter and a legal services agreement has been signed. Once an attorney-client relationship is established in writing, the client has the right to terminate the relationships with or without cause at any time.
