TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR NEW CLAIMS SUBMISSIONS
Sprechman & Fisher, P.A. agrees to represent you on a fee basis of a 1/3 (one-third) contingency of all amounts collected. If any claim is under $ 750.00, over 1 year old, has previously been placed with another attorney or collection agency, or we must forward the claim to co-counsel in another state, our fee will increase to 40% (forty percent) contingency of all amounts collected. If merchandise is returned we will be entitled to 1/2 (one-half) of the above referenced fee. If the matter involves your forwarding to us an out-of-state judgment to domesticate, we charge an additional $ 1,000 (one thousand) fee which is due if and when we initiate domestication proceedings.
You will be responsible for all court costs incurred by Sprechman & Fisher, P.A. in collecting this debt. These costs are only incurred should you authorize us to file suit. Costs usually consist of a filing fee to the Clerk of Court of up to $ 256 (two hundred fifty-six), depending on the amount of the suit; a service fee to the Sheriff of approximately $ 25 (twenty-five) per defendant per location; and $ 40 (forty) to certify and record the judgment, and file our judgment lien with the State of Florida, if and when we obtain judgment. We also charge a $ 20 (twenty) miscellaneous cost charge and a $ 5 (five) corporate information search charge should we file suit.
Once client agrees to claims services and supporting documentation is received, a case file is opened. Unless you request this firm to move immediately to legal action, a demand letter will be forwarded to the debtor requesting that he/she contact us and pay this debt in full. The process transitions to our collectors and research department who attempt to locate the debtor, locate assets, and obtain payment or a payment plan from the debtor, subject to your approval. If we are unsuccessful in amicably resolving the debt, we will then notify you as to whether suit is recommended. If a suit is authorized by you, we will file same and vigorously proceed to judgment and collection.
You agree that Sprechman & Fisher, P.A., are entitled to our fee on any payments, credits, or return merchandise that are sent or authorized directly to your office after the date we open our file. Should we obtain a judgment for you, or domesticate same, we will be entitled to our fee at any time the judgment is paid, whether our file is closed or not.
Should a counterclaim be filed in this matter and you wish us to represent you, an additional fee will be charged. If this matter shall go to jury trial an additional trial fee may be charged.
