The client shall compensate Mr. Plunkett for time and
expenses at the rate of $110.00 per hour for all tasks
performed, including but not limited

conclusions, and preparation of reports. Billing is calculated in units of a quarter of an hour. There is a minimum billable charge of 2 hours ($220), plus travel time, for any individual assignment.
A retainer fee will be required on acceptance of new matters. Retainers will be commensurate with the new assignment and must be received before work starts on the matter. This fee may not represent the total cost of the work to be performed.
For testimony at deposition or trial, the client shall
compensate Mr. Plunkett at the rate of $180.00 per hour,
to be billed in hourly increments. This rate for testimony
shall apply both while Mr. Plunkett is waiting to give
testimony, whether at an office or at court, and for time
taken for breaks or meals, as well as for time spent
actually giving testimony.
Mr. Plunkett shall provide services for the client
as an independent professional. Payment to Mr.
Plunkett is not dependent upon the findings which Mr.
Plunkett renders, nor on the outcome of any legal
action, mediation, arbitration, or the amount or terms
of any settlement of the underlying legal cause, nor on
any contractual arrangement between the client and any
other person or party.
