Terms of Service
Last Updated: July 1, 2021
1. Trade Name:
TicketTamer is a trade name for the reduced fee traffic ticket program of ReubenLaw LLC, which is located at P.O. Box 39023, St. Louis, Mo., 63109. Richard C. Reuben is the managing partner of ReubenLaw LLC.
2. Consent to Services and Policies.
3. What We Do for You:
We represent you before the court on all matters relating to your traffic or misdemeanor ticket(s). We negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce the charge(s) against you to a non-moving violation, or other lesser offense, so that you won’t get points on your record that your insurance company could use to raise your insurance rates by hundreds of dollars a year. We can’t guarantee success because of the circumstances of some tickets, we do our very best and get good deals for hundreds of clients every year. You can also retain us to work with you on other matters by mutual agreement.
4. Payment for Services.
Payment for services is due when you hire us. If you need additional time for payment, we are glad to give you until we receive the recommendation to make payment. You will need to pay at least half of your attorney fee as a retainer, and to have your balance paid in full before we can give you your deal. Your timely payment for ReubenLaw LLC services is a condition precedent to our duty to provide you with the deal we have worked out with the prosecutor. Once we give you the deal, our service is completed and our attorney-client relationship is terminated.
If you change your mind about using our service, we provide a full refund of any payments made prior to our entry on your behalf with the court. After that, refunds will be reduced by the cost of the time we have already put into your case.
6. Limited Scope Representation.
TicketTamer is a public service program of ReubenLaw LLC, and is a limited scope representation relationship pursuant to Missouri Rule 4-1.2(c). Under this relationship, we agree to represent you to get you a deal on your ticket, and our representation ends when we give you the deal. The delivery of the deal to you terminates attorney-client relationship, unless you decide to hire us to pay your court fine on your behalf. You are solely responsible for the fulfillment of all conditions relating to your deal, including, for example, the payment of your fine and court costs, and completing traffic school if required.
7. Consent to Sign on Your Behalf.
Some jurisdictions require you to sign documents that are time sensitive, such as a guilty plea that must be received by the court before it can accept payment for a recommendation. We will make every effort to have you sign such documents yourself. However, you also authorize us in writing to sign such documents on your behalf should we determine it to be necessary to advance your case.
8. Consent to Communicate with Support Person.
If a support person – such as a parent or friend – contacts us and/or retains us on your behalf, you authorize us to communicate with that person on your behalf and waive any right to privilege or confidentiality on all matters involving the representation.
A. Duty of Communication by the Support Person. By authorizing ReubenLaw LLC to communicate with such person on your behalf, you further expressly acknowledge that your support person has the legal responsibility to communicate to you any legal information provided to the support person about your case. You also acknowledge that ReubenLaw LLC is not responsible for non-communication or miscommunication between you and your support person, and you expressly waive any claims you may have against ReubenLaw LLC that may arise out of the communication duties flowing between you and your support person.
9. Personally Identifiably Information; confidentiality; privilege.
At your election, ReubenLaw LLC may provide you with a referral to other professionals to help you with other matters arising out of the incident for which you have received your ticket, such as for more advanced legal services, vehicle repair services, and trauma counseling services. You will not be charged for such referrals, although the provider of those services may pay a referral fee to ReubenLaw LLC for the referral.
While ReubenLaw LLC does a limited background check on members of its referral networks, ReubenLaw LLC in no way warrants or bears any legal responsibility for the third-party service provided. Any such engagement is entirely independent of your relationship with ReubenLaw LLC, and all remedies for all harms caused directly or proximately by a referral may only be directed at the service provider.
11. Consent to Receive Communications.
You agree that you may receive communications from TicketTamer, including case updates, account reminders, and newsletters.
12. Lawful Activities.
You can only use our services if they do not conflict with or violate the laws of your jurisdiction(s). By using our service, you are warranting that your use of or access to our service does not violate any applicable laws or court orders. To enforce this provision, TicketTamer(s) reserves the right to refuse, suspend or terminate your account immediately and without prior notice at its sole discretion.
13. Content You Upload.
You will not upload or provide Content or otherwise post, transmit, distribute, or disseminate through the Services any material that: (a) is false, misleading, unlawful, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, abusive, or inflammatory; (b) encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense or gives rise to civil liability; (c) breaches or infringes any duty toward or rights of any person or entity, including rights of publicity, privacy or intellectual property; (d) contains corrupted data or any other harmful, disruptive, or destructive files; (e) advertises products or services competitive with TicketTamer or its partners’ products and services, as determined by us in our sole discretion; or (f) in our sole judgment, is objectionable, restricts or inhibits any person or entity from using or enjoying any portion of the Services, or which may expose TicketTamer, its affiliates or its clients to harm or liability of any nature.

21. Dispute Resolution by Negotiation, Mediation, or Binding Arbitration.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to your satisfaction by emailing TicketTamer at email@example.com.
However, if TicketTamer is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so through informal negotiation, then as a condition to your use of our Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through mediation conducted by a mutually agreeable mediator, and if that fails, through binding arbitration by a mutually agreeable arbitrator using the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules then in place. The mediation or arbitration will be held in metropolitan St. Louis, Mo., or any other location to which we may then mutually agree. A party seeking binding arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute.

These Terms of Service create no third-party beneficiary rights.
27. Waiver, Separability, and Assignment.
The failure by ReubenLaw LLC to enforce any provision in these Terms of Service is not a waiver of its right to do so later.
