By signing this agreement you agree to cooperate with our firm as your attorneys. This includes providing any necessary documentation, being available to respond to inquiries from your attorneys, and making yourself available should you need to go into court on this matter. As your attorneys we will keep you readily aware of the situation on our end, and be responsive to questions you have in respect to this matter. However, we will not take actions outside the scope of this agreement. You also agree to the TERMS and CONDITIONS on the following page.
As your attorneys we cannot guarantee any success as to any individual matter, but we will pursue it to the fullest of our abilities. Additionally, while we can advise you regarding any settlement proposals offered by the adverse party, the final decision as to accepting any settlement is left upon you as an individual.
We look forward to working with you and are honored to represent you. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions concerning these matters.
