    You hereinafter called "Client(s), does hereby request and authorize The Garmon Law Firm, which may include an associate attorney with said firm, hereinafter called "Attorney" to represent Client(s) as legal counsel for all purposes in connection with injuries and damages arising out of an incident referenced in your injury date based upon the following condition:

    1. Attorney will devote his full professional abilities to case, and Client(s) agree(s) to fully cooperate with Attorney. Attorney will not settle the case without Client's(s') approval. Client acknowledges the electronic communications act and the other applicable laws that bind an individual via an electronic assent as one would be bound by way of a written signature and also which, among other things, bar the conveyance of fraudulent or untrue information.

    2. Client will pay Attorney in the injury claim for his services 40% of any kind and all amounts recovered before trial 40% if lawsuit is filed and case is settled before trial; and 45% if said matter goes to trial provided such fee shall be computed from the gross recovery with all costs as referred to in Paragraph Three hereafter being deducted. "Before Trial" means before a jury is impaneled to hear the case or if the case is settled the day trial is scheduled to begin. It is acknowledged that if there is an Appeal of the case any penalty involved against the other side, including interest, shall be paid as an additional fee for our handling the Appeal of the case. ((a) before suit filed; b) after suit is filed; c) after trial begins) SO LONG AS THE CLIENT ALLOWS THE ATTORNEY TO PROCEED IN THE EVENT OF NO RECOVERY, CLIENT SHALL OWE ATTORNEY NOTHING FOR SERVICES RENDERED as per our NO FEE GUARANTEE.

    3. Client(s) agree(s) to pay all costs of investigation, preparation and trial of case and authorize(s) Attorney to deduct his fee and then such costs from the proceeds recovered. An example of typical expenses include, but are not limited to, the following, to-wit: (1) expert or investigator time spent on your case; (2) cost of photocopying; (3) postage; (4) bookkeeping fee of at minimum, but not limited to $50.00; (5) automobile mileage and/or gasoline; (6) costs of court reporters for oral depositions; (7) photographic film and costs of development of said film; (8) cost for your medical records/hospital records; (9) fee that a doctor or other medical professional may charge for expert witnesses including the oral deposition for the expert, conferences with the expert for trial, (10) paralegal and receptionist expense and (10) witness fee or mileage expense for appearance at trial.

Client(s) understand(s) Attorney will investigate Client's(s') claim and, if after so investigating, claim does not appear to them to have merit, then Attorney shall have the right to cancel this agreement. If the client becomes dissatisfied or unhappy and discharges the attorney and the attorney disputes such grounds, the client agrees that any future recovery from another lawyer will be subject to an attorney's lien for a Quantum Merit claim for any and all work done by GLF regardless of whether a lawsuit was filed. Nothing will be owed if no recovery is made.
