8. Disclaimer. This site provides legal information, but not legal advice. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney if you have a particular need or problem. We endeavor to keep the information offered through the Services accurate and current, but since the law changes constantly and varies widely among different jurisdictions, we cannot guarantee that all the information on the site is accurate.

10. Changes; Discontinuance. LawServer reserves the right to change the Terms of Use, and you are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms of Use. Your continued use of the Services after the effective date of such changes will constitute acceptance of and agreement to any such changes. LawServer may suspend or discontinue the Services at any time to you and/or to others, without notice.

11. Choice of Law; Disputes. These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions. You agree to submit to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts sitting in Cook County, Illinois for any and all disputes, claims and actions arising from or in connection with the Services and/or these Terms of Use. In any dispute arising under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorneys' fees and expenses.

12. Miscellaneous. If any part of these Terms of Use are determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be replaced with a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in effect.
