Terms of this Resource and Resource Purchaser Agreement

All contract templates, products, and resources are owned and provided by Guide My Community LLC (“Company” or “we” or “us” or “our”). The term “you” or “your” refers to any user or purchaser of said product(s), resources(s), or listeners of our podcast (“Resources”).

Legal Advice Disclaimer

Legal advice occurs when an attorney applies and interprets the law to your specific circumstances. The Resources or related communications are NOT legal advice, nor as a recommendation of any particular legal understanding. Company is not offering our legal services and you expressly agree we are not acting in any professional capacity by making Resources available. Further, engaging with Company on social media or through email communication does not create an attorney/client relationship. Company insists that you consult an attorney if you’d like advice on your interpretation of the Resources information or its accuracy. Resources are for educational and entertainment purposes only. None of the Resource or its related material(s) should be construed as legal advice.

This website is created and owned by Company, founded by Lauren Ruiz, an attorney licensed in Arizona, but she’s not YOUR attorney. This website does not seek professional employment for legal matters in any jurisdictions other than Arizona. An attorney/client relationship shall only be formed by signing an engagement letter for client services with Guide My Business PLLC.
