By His Stripes, Inc. , doing business as Gracious Counsel (“Gracious Counsel ”) provides an online portal to help customers identify and learn about business and legal matters commonly encountered by individuals in creative business industries.  Gracious Counsel is not a law firm and does not and will not perform services performed by an attorney.  Gracious Counsel is NOT a substitute for the advice of an attorney.  Rather, Gracious Counsel provides templates to individuals who chose to prepare their own legal and/or business documents or submit templates to licensed attorneys for modification.  Communications between you and Gracious Counsel  are protected by our Privacy Policy, but are not protected by any legal privilege, including the attorney-client privilege or work product doctrine.  Gracious Counsel cannot provide legal advice nor draft specific legal forms for a specific entity, individual or situation.  The legal forms and templates contained herein are for general use only.  Gracious Counsel  cannot provide any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation to you about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies.

While Gracious Counsel strives to keep its legal contract templates current, accurate and up-to-date, Gracious Counsel  cannot guarantee that all the information available at Gracious (including related domains and subdomains) (the “Sites’), or information provided in templates and products obtained from Gracious Counsel , is current at all times or in all areas.  Gracious Counsel provides general documents we hope will be helpful to those of you who have chosen to complete your own legal documents.  While Gracious Counsel makes an effort to keep our legal documents current and updated, because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, Gracious Counsel can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction.  Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, Gracious Counsel encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.

Nothing contained in the Sites or available through the products, materials, classes, webinars, and services of Gracious Counsel is intended to form an attorney-client relationship. Your interaction with Gracious Counsel in any capacity does not form such a relationship.  Gracious Counsel ’s performance of services related to those offered through the Sites, information provided on the Sites, and products sold through the Sites likewise does not create an attorney-client relationship under any particular circumstance.

Additionally, from time to time, Gracious Counsel may introduce you to licensed attorneys through various referral methods.  However, at no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with Gracious Counsel due to these complimentary services, for which Gracious Counsel does not take any fee or engage in any profit-sharing.  Whether or not you choose to pursue such referral or related legal services is entirely your decision and is provided by Gracious Counsel only as a courtesy.

Finally, Gracious Counsel  does not intend to create any attorney-client relationship and your use of Gracious Counsel ’s Sites, templates and other services, products and resources does not create an attorney-client relationship.
If you have any questions about the nature of Gracious Counsel’s services or any of our terms or policies, please direct all questions to:
