Our past results depended on the unique facts and law of those cases, and are not a guarantee, warranty, or prediction as to the outcome of any matter we may agree to handle for you, including this one. We cannot and do not promise any outcome.
You are only permitted to submit a claims form if you have a bona fide intent to pursue a legal claim or determine your eligibility to pursue a legal claim. If you are an employee of Valve, an attorney for Valve, in any form of agency or employment relationship with Valve, an attorney also seeking to retain clients for a suit against Valve, an attorney for an attorney also seeking to retain clients for a suit against Valve, or in any form of agency or employment relationship with an attorney also seeking to retain clients for a suit against Valve, you are expressly forbidden from submitting a claims form.

You authorize us to communicate with you using all means and technologies in common use, including email and text messaging. If you do not want us to contact you, just email us. We will put you on a "do not contact" list. You provide us and our designees and agents your express permission and authorization to send text messages and automated calls to the number or numbers you provide to us or our agents during the intake process and thereafter. You represent that you are the subscriber of those numbers and have the authority to give such consent. By completing the automated claims form on our website, you authorize us to deliver or cause to be delivered to you texts or calls using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice. Bucher Law PLLC will send no more than four automated text messages a week, regarding your claim, potential claim, or legal documents that need to be filled out for their case/claim. Reply HELP for help, Reply STOP to stop, Message and data rates may apply, and carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.

Doing so will ensure you don't receive any automated texts or calls regarding your potential claim. Alternatively, if you want to use the claims form, you can do so and then send an email to email@example.com with the subject SMS CONSENT followed by your name, which will let us know you do not wish to receive automated texts or calls. Likewise, if you previously completed a claim form and have decided you no longer wish to receive automated text messages or automated calls, you can let us know about your preference by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject SMS CONSENT followed by your name. If you've already received a text message from Bucher Law PLLC and subsequently decide you no longer wish to receive automated text messages or automated calls, you can also respond STOP to any text message we've sent you and you won't receive further automated text messages or calls.
If you choose to submit a claims form and are a natural person, you agree that in the event of any dispute, controversy, or claim between us (or our respective heirs, successors, assigns, or affiliates) arising out of, relating to, or in connection with your engagement of us (any of the foregoing, a “dispute”), you and we waive the right to seek remedies in court, including the right to a jury trial, and agree to submit said dispute exclusively to binding individual arbitration. For disputes where less than $10,000 is in controversy, the arbitration should be conducted in accordance with Part 137 of the Rules of the Chief Administrator of the Courts (22 NYCRR), provided that arbitration is otherwise permitted under the rules. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to decide any claims as a class, collective, or representative action. For disputes where greater than $10,000 is at issue, or for disputes less than $10,000 but for which 22 NYCRR does not permit arbitration, such dispute shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding confidential arbitration pursuant to the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, as they may be amended from time to time. The arbitration shall be conducted by a sole arbitrator appointed pursuant to JAMS rules. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to decide any claims as a class, collective, or representative action. The parties will share the expense of arbitration equally. Threshold issues of arbitrability shall be decided by the arbitrator, including the scope of this agreement and whether a controversy or claim arises out of or relates to your engagement of us. If you are an employee of Valve, an attorney for Valve, a principal, employee, or former employee of Zaiger LLC, or a principal, employee, or former employee of Black Diamond Capital Management, this provision does not apply to you.
