Thank you for selecting our firm to represent you. This document summarizes and confirms the terms and conditions concerning Manning Carroll Law LLC’s (the “Firm”) representation of you.
SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION
You are engaging the Firm to serve you as part of its business subscription service. The fee and term commitment is in accordance with your selection in this form. Your subscription/retainer will renew on a month-to-month basis until cancelled. The subscription service also includes a 15% discount off our normal rates for additional services or products not included in the subscription service. Your fees are earned upon receipt. The benefits to you are as described above, and additionally include the Firm forgoing other business opportunities by making the Firm's services available to you for a certain period of time to the exclusion of other clients. The Firm has the right to change its pricing after the initial commitment term and will notify you in writing if it does so. Our representation of you is limited to this matter unless otherwise explicitly agreed.
Unless otherwise specified in a plan, no Subscription Plan includes the following services: (1) areas of law outside of the firm’s practice areas; (2) negotiation of contracts or any other legal matters with outside parties; (3) litigation, arbitration, and mediation; (4) administrative enforcement proceedings and other quasi-judicial proceedings; (6) represent the client in any other court case or legal proceeding, including any proceedings stemming from this case which forms the basis of this Agreement; and (7) costs and fees due/paid to third parties.
FILE STORAGE & MARKETING PROCEDURES
The Firm will store and maintain a file of documents for this matter by storing the file for this matter in an electronic format on a secure server or cloud-based platform. We will retain your file following the end of our representation according to the Tennessee Rules of Professional Conduct. By signing below, you also authorize Manning Carroll Law LLC to use the fact of our representation of you in our marketing materials. This is not a waiver of attorney-client privilege.
You may terminate the representation at any time, with or without cause, by notifying us. However, by submitting this form, you agree to authorize payment for the amount and term that you selected, and for ongoing payments until you cancel. Termination of the Firm’s services by either party will not affect your responsibility for payment of costs and disbursements incurred before termination and in connection with an orderly transition of the matter. If termination occurs, your papers and property will be returned to you promptly upon request. The Firm will retain its own files related to the case. We will try to identify in advance and discuss with you any situation that may lead to our withdrawal, and if withdrawal ever becomes necessary, we will provide written notice.
Additional terms and conditions will be specified in the Client Agreement between the client and Manning Carroll Law LLC. If the foregoing terms and conditions accurately summarize and confirm your understanding of our proposed attorney-client relationship, please indicate your approval by signing below. No subscription plan will commence until a Client Agreement is fully executed.
We very much look forward to representing you in this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns whatsoever.
