Retention Terms


It is our opinion that you should seek legal counsel of your choice to address the Matter because the Matter is too complex for self-representation. If you choose to retain Burrell Law, P.C. (the “Firm”), the foregoing sets forth the terms of the retention. Once this quote is accepted by you, individually or in your capacity as an authorized representative of the prospective client (hereinafter, “Client”) and received by the Firm, this letter confirms that the Client has retained the Firm to represent Client in the Matter.

Scope of Representation

By purchasing a product on the Firm’s website, the Client has retained the Firm to perform services related to the Matter as defined by the product chosen herein.

Legal Fees & Other Costs

Upon retention, the Firm will charge the respective product’s listed price (the “Fee”) to perform tasks specific to the Matter. The Fee is non-refundable.

The Firm will also bill the Client for disbursements the Firm makes on the Client’s behalf, including filing and service fees, delivery charges and postage fees, photocopying, computerized legal research charges and similar expenses. If there are large single-item expenses, the Firm may forward the bill to the Client for direct payment.

Mutual Covenants

The Firm shall have the right to engage other attorneys to assist the Firm at the Firm’s sole expense and at no additional cost to the Client.

Client is also agreeing to cooperate and participate in the conduct of the Matter and to truthfully and immediately notify the Firm as to anything that may occur that could affect the Matter. The Client understands and agrees that the (1) Firm relying on facts as given to the Firm by the Client, (2) the Firm is not yet in a position to express an opinion as to the outcome, and (3) the Firm has not guaranteed any outcome, favorable or unfavorable, and the funds expended on the Fee and costs will not guarantee any result.

Client may discharge the Firm at any time. The Firm may withdraw from representation with the Client’s consent or for good cause. Good cause includes, but is not limited to, the Client’s breach of this Agreement, Client’s refusal to cooperate or to follow the Firm’s advice on a material matter, or any fact or circumstance that would make the Firm’s continued representation unlawful or unethical.

The Firm always seeks to avoid any fee disputes. In the event a fee dispute arises, the Client may have the right to seek arbitration. Should the Client wish to seek such arbitration, the Client should notify the Firm in writing and the Firm will provide the Client with the information required to file for such arbitration with the Fee Dispute Arbitration Program of the New York County Lawyers’ Association.
