• Deposition and/or court testimony fees $6,400/day or any portion of a day.

• Hourly fees for deposition/court testimony will be $600/hr in states where only hourly rates are allowed.

• The billing period will begin upon receipt of notice in writing of acceptance of these terms and/or receipt of retainer fee by WRK.

• WRK should be notified promptly when cases are closed.

• Case files will not be closed, and minimum monthly billing will continue until WRK receives a termination notice and final payment is received.

• WRK keeps a full schedule of activities going year round. Scheduling as far in advance as possible for professional services will help avoid potential conflicts for time. WRK will make every effort to accommodate scheduling needs of all clients. Reserved dates will take first priority.

• If dates are reserved, but not used, they will be invoiced at ½ the professional rate above unless cancelled at least 30 days prior.

• This agreement may be terminated by written notification.

• WRK does not keep all closed case file information unless kept on retainer. If a case is closed and later reinstated, all paperwork and/or case information will need to be regenerated.
