Consultant Fees

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 to: field investigation, research, analysis, calculations, 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.
