My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced since 1974. I practice in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. These answers do not create an attorney client relationship.

Without placing this provision in context, your question cannot be answered. Before you sign the agreement, it would be advisable to seek out counsel to review the agreement so that you fully understand your rights and obligations.


Consult with a local contracts/consumer attorney. It will be well worth your time and whatever consultation fee is charged. is a good place to search for a qualified attorney in your area.

This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.
