Fwd: Re: Limits of Liability

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I once had a judge (personal acquaintance) tell me that you cannot
contract away negligence.  Therefore, any lawyer worth even half of
his/her fee is going to claim negligence and a "limit of liability"
clause goes out the window.

I would like to add, however, that a limit of liability clause is good
up to the time the client gets a lawyer.
