Hursh & Hursh, P.C. (“Firm”) follows the requirement of the Rules of Professional Conduct relative to obtaining a representation agreement in writing prior to, or as quickly as possible after, commencing representation of a client (“You”). Accordingly, the following will describe the terms and conditions of our legal representation.
To enable Firm to render services effectively, you agree to disclose fully and accurately to Firm all facts that may be relevant to the matter or that Firm may otherwise request, and to keep Firm apprised of developments relating to the matter. You also will assist and cooperate with Firm as appropriate in dealing with the matter.
Firm agrees not to accept, without prior approval from you, any engagement known by Firm to be in direct conflict with your interests in this matter. If, in the course of representing multiple clients, Firm determines in its sole discretion that a conflict of interest exists, Firm will notify all affected clients of such conflict and may withdraw from representing any one or more of the multiple clients to the extent such withdrawal would be permitted or required by applicable provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct.
You understand and agree that Firm makes no promises or guarantees as to the outcome of this matter other than to provide you with reasonable and necessary legal services. Firm’s representation does not entail a continuing obligation to advise you concerning subsequent legal developments that might have a bearing on your affairs generally, or, after the completion of a matter, subsequent legal developments related to, or that might have a bearing on that matter.
You agree that Firm retains paper copies of documents for six years after the date of such document, and routinely destroys copies of paper documents after that time. Firm will provide you with such paper records upon written request. In the absence of a request from you, these documents will be destroyed. Firm does not make digital copies of all records, but Firm does retain all digital records indefinitely.
Subject to the percentage discounts for the various VIP levels, time will be billed at the rate of $460.00 per hour for attorneys, $230.00 per hour for paralegals, $110.00 per hour for law clerks, and $65.00 per hour for administrative time. Contract review and negotiation is performed on a flat fee basis.
Contract review services will be provided only after you have paid for the service, and no refunds are given. VIP plans entail an initial credit of an amount equal to the value of the hours in the particular plan. If monthly payments are discontinued for any reason, the Firm will cease services and seek payment for the excess of the value of time spent over the payments received.
