To assure Firm availability to Client for Firm services, Clients pay our Firm a retainer payable when Client signs a Retainer Agreement and returns it to our Firm. This is the initial retainer fee (“Retainer #1”) that is immediately earned by Firm in return for Firm’s agreement to represent Client. Client understands and agrees that the retainer may not cover all of the costs and fees associated with Client’s matter. Should the entire retainer not be utilized by the Firm, the unused portion shall be returned to the Client.

Client agrees to provide additional retainer payments when Retainer #1 has been depleted and understands that the Retainer Fund serves as a credit to Client for Firm services and billings that are applied against the Retainer Fund. In the event of non-payment, Firm may suspend or terminate its services.

When Firm’s services conclude, all unpaid charges will immediately become due and payable. In the event funds are held in trust on Client’s behalf, Client authorizes Firm to withhold and pay any fees and costs Client owes to firm before disbursing funds to Client. Except for the estimated minimum fee, any unused Retainer Fund balance at the conclusion of Firm’s services will be refunded to Client.

All other terms and conditions of the signed Retainer Agreement apply.
