The client shall be responsible costs of investigating, preparing, processing and litigating of the claim. If the firm is required to attend any court hearing, proceeding, or meeting out of the office, travel (at the IRS business mileage rate) and parking will be added to the costs.
As security for the firm’s fees, the client hereby assigns to the firm the client’s interest in the claim to the extent of the firm’s fees.
It is mutually agreed that if nothing is recovered on the claim, the firm shall receive no compensation.
