CONTINGENCY FEE AGREEMENT
IDENTIFICATION OF PARTIES. This agreement is made between Witherspoon Law Group and any referral attorneys "Attorney" or the “Firm” and
hereafter referred to as "Client" for the incident occurring on
RESPONSIBILITIES OF ATTORNEY AND CLIENT. Attorney will perform the legal services called for under this agreement to the best of Attorney's abilities, keep Client informed of progress and developments, and respond promptly to Client's inquiries and communications. Client will be truthful and cooperative with Attorney and keep Attorney reasonably informed of developments and of Client's address, telephone number, and whereabouts.,
SETTLEMENT & DEPOSIT. Attorney will not settle Client's claim without the approval of Client. Client authorizes Attorney to sign and deposit any settlement on their behalf into Attorney trust account.
NON-SOLICITATION. I have not been solicited, coerced, or promised money or anything of value by The Witherspoon Law Group, or its agents, employees or representatives. I chose The Witherspoon Law Group, of my own free will, voluntarily, and without compensation or promise of compensation or anything else of value.
ATTORNEY'S FEES - CONTINGENCY CONTRACT. Attorney agrees to waive hourly fees of $450 and instead pursue Client’s claim on a contingency basis. The contingency upon which compensation is to be paid is the collection of monies following settlement or award on the claim or claims set forth above and the amount of such compensation which is to be paid by the Client to the Firm shall be on the gross amount recovered as follows: Our firm fee is 33.3% of the amount of any offer of settlement made before a lawsuit is filed; 40% of the amount of any offer of settlement or verdict after lawsuit has been filed but before sixty (60) days of the first trial setting; 45% of any settlement or recovery made for client within sixty (60) days of the first trial setting and thereafter excluding any appeals or post-trial work. Attorney does not handle appeals. Appeals must be filed 30 days after jury trial.
DEFERRED PAYMENT. If payment of all or any part of the amount to be received will be deferred (such as in the case of an annuity, a structured settlement, or periodic payments), the "total amount received," for purposes of calculating the Attorney's fees, will be the initial lump-sum payment plus the present value, as of the time of the settlement, final arbitration award, or final judgment, of the payments to be received thereafter. If the payment is insufficient to pay the Attorney's fees in full, the balance will be paid from subsequent payments of the recovery before any distribution to Client.
ASSIGNMENT OF PAYMENT/POWER OF ATTORNEY. In consideration of services or to be rendered under this agreement, Client agrees to assign to Attorney all monies paid by insurance company on account of claims submitted for services rendered by Attorney, whether submitted by Client or Attorney.

These provisions shall be cancelled upon completion of services. Client grants Attorney limited power of attorney for all purposes related to this claim.
