Content, Listings, and Advertisements

Content

HG Websites provides websites in which users supply the information in the directories of professionals and firms. HG Websites does not refer attorneys, expert witnesses, recruiters, investigators, process servers, court reporters or others listed by HG Websites to users. Because authentication on the Internet is difficult, HG Websites cannot and does not confirm that any of our users are who they claim to be.

HG Websites does not warrant the validity of the information, nor does it guarantee the quality of the work product. The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a professional are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Users should contact local bar associations and/or other applicable professional associations with regard to expert witnesses and other legal non-attorney professionals.

HG Websites does not guarantee review of the contents of the listings which are provided by our users or any links to HG Websites; HG Websites is not responsible for any material or information contained in the linked sites or provided by our users.

A description or indication of limitation of practice by a professional does not mean that any agency or board has certified such professional as a specialist or expert in any indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such professional is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other professional. All potential clients are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation of any professional being considered.

HG Websites does not warrant the truth or accuracy of what any users have represented to HG Websites or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Specifically, without in any way limiting any other provision of this Agreement, HG Websites does not control, warrant, or guarantee the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of any user to render professional services, or consumers of such services to purchase them. HG Websites does not control, warrant, or guarantee that any User is who he or she claims to be or is not acting under false pretenses.


HG Websites does not guaranty traffic to and from its listings or other form of advertisement nor does it guaranty its internet placement in the search engines for any keyword(s).

By using this Website, you are agreeing that under no circumstances will HG Websites or its affiliates, be responsible for (1) any information contained on or omitted from the site(s), (2) any person's reliance on any such information, whether or not the information is correct, current or complete, (3) the consequences of any action you or any other person takes or fails to take, whether or not based on information provided by or as a result of the use of the Website and their affiliates also have no responsibility for (4) any person's satisfaction with any expert witness, consultant, provider, attorney, professional or law firm, whether relating to competence, diligence, or otherwise, (5) the results of any information, testimony or services provided, given by or representation from any expert, consultant, provider, attorney, professional, or law firm, or (6) the failure or refusal of any expert witness, consultant, provider, attorney, professional or law firm to respond to you.

Listings

If you choose to register a password protected firm, company or individual profile with HG Websites or take advantage of such other services as may be offered only to users with a profile - you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, your contact and office information and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. (For our Law firm directories, we do not accept PO Boxes as addresses and/or addresses that are not law firm offices.)
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, HG Websites has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue; HG Websites has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). HG Websites is under no obligation to list a law firm, company or service. HG Websites reserves the right to list law firms, companies or services at its sole discretion. Premium listings include a 30 minute editorial service.

HG Websites reserves the right to remove any law firm, expert witness, recruiter, investigator, process server, court reporter or others listed on the HG sites at its sole discretion. HG Websites has no obligation to sell its product to any company/firm if HG Websites believes that it is not in its best interest.

Free Basic listings

HG Websites reserve the right to remove any free listing without prior notice. Companies and Law Firms posting/registering misleading, incorrect or fraudulent information, and /or entities known/recognized as scammers and/or spammers will have their listing immediately deleted from our database and website without warning.

Editorial Guidelines for law firm/attorney Basic listings

We will remove without notice any submitted basic listing that:

  • Is improperly submitted due to use of excessive capitalization, spelling errors or incorrect information
  • Incorrect email address - we send a confirmation notice by email and if the email is returned we delete the listing 
  • PO Box instead of address
  • Listing the practice area instead of name of firm
  • Contains email addresses from generic email servers such as hotmail.com or lycos.com
  • Includes a website URL or email address in the address fields or title
  • Is from a firm with no website
  • The firm is not found on the Internet (through their own website address or other listings, legal articles, bar associations, etc.)
  • Lists more than 50 areas of practice
  • List partnership law firm addresses as their own office(s)
  • Is from a company other than a law firm (associated service companies please follow the HG.org navigation links to your registration pages)

Removed Basic listings: If your Basic listing has been removed for one or more of the above reasons, simply create and submit a new Basic listing with updated information in compliance with our guidelines. Please note that we do not exchange emails about deleted Basic listings.

Law Firm/Attorney Premium listings

Because we are committed to providing the best possible directory which contains valuable and accurate content for our visitors, we encourage you to comply completely with our Editorial Guidelines. We avoid any illicit practices that may damage the quality of HG.org content. This is why we offer complimentary secretarial services and edit the Premium listings accordingly.

Our team will choose the precise key words, add the relevant content, verify the accuracy of all office addresses listed, and verify the selection of areas of practice. This data integrity check is done to ensure that you are represented correctly and the Premium listing receives the best possible search performance.

You are welcome to update your listing at any time and at no cost. Should you do so, we encourage you to review and follow our editorial guidelines.

Editorial Guidelines for Premium Listings:



Law firms, solo practitioners and their representative should not use any feature that is deceptive, misleading, manipulative, or that is likely to confuse the visitor. Main examples of misrepresentation are as follows: use of trade names or location in place of an actual law firm name (Ex. Divorce Center or Best Attorneys); selection of incorrect areas of practice and services, incorrect accreditation and representative clients; listing location(s) where they do not have the license to practice; and listing other law firms (partnerships) as your own office.

Please note that we are aware law offices do use d/b/a names. However, in the interest of presenting the most unambiguous and accurate information possible to our visitors and your potential clients, we will not allow extremely generic Law Firm names in our listings. Instead, we provide you with the option of using these types of names in the titles of your Premium listings.

 

    Example: Your law firm is registered and incorporated with the Texas Secretary of State as "The Law Office of John Doe, PLLC" and you do business as "Bankruptcy Attorneys of Amarillo, Texas". In your Premium listing, your Law Firm name should appear as "The Law Office of John Doe, PLLC". Your listing title will be "Bankruptcy Attorneys of Amarillo, Texas". In this instance, if you try to list your law firm name as "Bankruptcy Attorneys of Amarillo, Texas" your listing will not be approved.
If you believe that the actual name your law firm is registered under may be disallowed by our editorial team because of its generic nature, but is indeed the only legal name your law firm uses (and the only name presented on your website), please let us know beforehand. We will do our best to verify the information and, if it meets our guidelines, we will allow it.

Premium listings must comply with the same following provisions imposed on Basic listings and will be reviewed by our team for conformity before being posted.

  • Use only standard capitalization (Example: "Law Firm Name" or "Main Street" - No excessive capitalization such as "LAW FIRM NAME" or "MAIN STREET").
  • Check the spelling of your title and other information in your listing.
  • Use the English spelling for your city. 
  • Include a valid email address - We send a confirmation notice by email and if the email is returned we will delete the listing. 
  • Use only a full physical address - No PO Boxes.
  • You may not list your firm if you do not have a website - We only list law firms with valid websites.
  • Do not use a generic name for your firm such as "Divorce Center LLC" or a practice area instead of the name of your firm.
  • Enter the correct information in the appropriate fields and do not enter a website URL or email address in the address or title fields. 
  • We must be able to locate your law firm and your attorneys on the Internet through your firm's website, other directories, legal articles, bar associations, etc.
    To ensure delivery of important emails to your inbox regarding your HG.org listing, please add directories@hg.org to your email address book or your safe list. For instructions please visit Email Whitelist Instructions.

If we notice that the Premium listing does not follow our Editorial Guidelines or uses one or more of the following practices we reserve the right to change the content without notice or remove it from our directories without compensation until the listing is corrected.
    ·
  • Incorrect name of law firm, use of area(s) of practice and or location as the law firm name
  • Incorrect selection of practice area(s) – Practice areas selected in your listing must appear on your website ·
  • Repetitive keywords in the description of your firm and services in an attempt to manipulate search engine results
  • Invalid office location(s) - Additional offices require registration with local bar associations to be considered valid
  • Listing of a PO Box instead of a valid physical legal office address
  • Listing “Partner" law firms offices as your own offices (Should your partner law firm(s) wish to be listed on HG.org, they are required
  • to purchase a Premium listing of their own or list their practice with a free Basic listing)
  • Listing multiple website URL’s for a single law firm in the additional information fields
  • Not presenting a full bio of at least one attorney in the listing and the firm's website
  • Listing incorrect or invalid bar association affiliation(s).
If we notice that the Premium listing does not follow our Editorial Guidelines we reserve the right to change the content without notice. A listing may be removed from our directories until corrected if the infringement is repetitive or obviously deceptive. The subscription will not be extended during that timeframe.

Premium listings allow one law firm name for all offices. Law firm directories are for law firms and their attorneys only. We do not list legal consultants in the law firm directories.

If the content of a listing is found fraudulent and/or posted by scammers, spammers or other companies intending to commit fraud and/or copied from other law firm/company content in their listing or website, HG Websites reserves the right to remove any law firm, expert, recruiter, investigator, process server, court reporter or others listed on the HG sites at its sole discretion, without refund.

Banners and Top of Directory Positions

Users may purchase advertising.

Premium Listings, banners, and all top of the directory positions are not refundable. Any credit sent to HG for advertising purchase is not refundable and should be used within a 2-years period from the day of payment for purchase of HG advertising. Any credit acquired from previous purchases is not refundable and should be used within a 2-years period for purchase of HG advertising. Any offer is valid for a period of 3 days from the receipt of an email or invoice. Terms are subject to change without notice after the 3 day period.

Banner advertising and top of the directory position are for our Premium subscribers only. If a Premium listing is not renewed, the remaining portion of the banner and/or top of the directory position subscription will be prorated and applied to the renewal of the Premium listing, and the banner and/or top of the directory position will be removed from HG Websites without prior notice.

If a monthly installment is not paid, the advertising program will be put offline. If the monthly installment is not reinstated by providing a new credit card within 10 business days, the advertising program will be considered terminated and be available to other users.

Use of the HG Logo

An HG.org or HGExperts.com client, in good standing, may use one of the HG Websites approved logos (as displayed at HG.org and HGExperts.com Logos) if the client complies with the following conditions:

  • Clients may use the logo only on their letterhead, business cards and similar documents or websites, and products not for sale on which the name and address of the client or the client’s business is displayed.
  • The logo may not be used in any way which suggests or implies approval by HG.org of any product or practice. This includes any use that the public might interpret as an endorsement or approval by HG.org of a client or a client’s business or which might be taken to support or encourage a client’s sale of product or service.
  • Logos may not be used on advertisements or service literature.
  • No person, company or client gains any rights whatsoever in the logos or their use; it remains the property of HG.org LLC. HG.org LLC reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to require the logo's removal from any location or thing HG.org feels does not comply with this policy, or which could or does discredit the company.
  • Any unauthorized use of the logos may result in legal action and the imposition of damages.
Any information about HG.org products and services might be changed at any time without prior warning.

HG Websites screens all listing applicants for validity and reserves the right to refuse to post your listing or to remove your listing, at our discretion, if you do not adhere to our editorial guidelines, or should we determine your law practice or business is not legitimate or misrepresents its business, services, etc. in any manner.
