This Contract for Legal Services (“Contract”), entered into by and between The Law Offices of Aaron R. Lee, PLLC, hereinafter called the “Law Firm” and

Defendant: ____________________________________

hereinafter called "Defendant".

WHEREAS, the Defendant has a need for professional legal services.

WHEREAS, the Law Firm has represented that it is qualified to and has agreed to perform such professional legal services.

NOW, THEREFORE, the Defendant and the Law Firm, with the intention of being legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

1.Scope of Representation. The Law Firm shall represent Defendant solely in the traffic matter indicated in the Defendant's Client Intake Form.

(a). This Agreement applies only to the plea of the case and does not apply to the trial, appeal or retrial of any traffic offense listed in this Agreement.

(b). Unless otherwise agreed in writing, this Agreement covers only the court date for which the Law Firm is hired and one (1) continuance. If the Law Firm has to continue a case beyond this limit due to lacking information, required documents, or prepaid Court Costs and fines from the Defendant, the Defendant agrees to pay the Law Firm twenty-five dollars for each additional continuance. This payment is to be made before the matter in this Agreement is finalized. The Defendant agrees to allow the Law Firm to use the debit or credit card on file to process this payment. ______ Yes, I understand.

(c). This Agreement does not apply to the Law Firm having to add the Defendant's case back onto the Court docket due to the Defendant, unless that is what the Agreement is based upon.

(d). The Law Firm may waive the appearance of the Defendant, continue the case, plead the Defendant as charged, or plead the Defendant to a lesser charge, if the Law Firm reasonably believes that it would be in the Defendant's best interest.

(e). The Law Firm may employ associate counsel or "Of Counsel" attorneys at their own discretion and expense, and any attorney so employed may be designated to appear on the Defendant's behalf or undertake my representation in this matter.

2.Fees:

(a). The Defendant agrees to pay Law Firm a one-time payment of $__________________, or;

(b). The Defendant agrees to pay the Law Firm in two equal payments of $________________, or;

(c). The Defendant agrees to pay the Law Firm in three equal payments of $________________.

Defendant understands and agrees that this is a fee for legal services, and does not include court costs, and no portion of the fee will be returned to the client regardless of the success of the case. This fee is treated as a fee for legal services, and it will be considered earned upon receipt.

Defendant agrees that if the Law Firm allows him to make a payment(s) under 2(b), or 2(c), then the Defendant must make the remaining equal payment under section 2(b), and must make one additional equal payment under section 2(c), within twenty business days, or before the case for which this Agreement is entered into is set to be resolved, whichever is sooner. If Defendant does not make payment within this required time, the Law Firm will not appear in Court for the defendant.

Defendant acknowledges that if the Defendant is informed during a consultation that the Law Firm believes that Defendant’s case can be reduced to an Improper Equipment or a Prayer for Judgment Continued in Mecklenburg County or Rowan County, or if the Law Firm instructs the Defendant that it is in the Defendant’s best interest to obtain a driving record(s), then it is the Defendant’s responsibility to provide the Law Firm with a copy of the Defendant’s driving record(s), at the Defendant’s costs, prior to the court date. ______ Yes, I understand.

Court Costs may only be paid by Cashier’s Check, Money Order or Cash.

(1). Defendant acknowledges that if a case is resolved in Iredell County, he will have 20 days after an Administrative Court and 5 days after a District Court case is resolved to pay the total court costs and fines. If payment is not received within the appropriate time, the Defendant will be subject to large fines and penalties.

(2). Defendant acknowledges that if a case is resolved in Rowan County, he must pay the court costs and fines on the day of court, or will be subject to a $20.00 penalty. Additionally, if payment is not received by the clerk of court within 20 days of the court date, the Defendant will be subject to large fines and penalties. The Law Firm will only make payment of the court costs, on the Defendant’s behalf, if the Defendant sends a Money Order made payable to the “clerk of court” for the amount directed by the Law Firm, to the Law Firm’s office, and it is received prior to the Defendant’s court date. The Law Firm will not accept payment of court costs by any other form of payment.

(3). Defendant acknowledges that if a case is resolved in Gaston County, he must have already sent to the Law Firm, a certified check or money order in the amount that was requested by the Law Firm.

6.Other.

(a.) The Defendant acknowledges and agrees that the Law Firm has made no promises to the Defendant as to the outcome of the case. Also, the Defendant cannot demand any specific outcome.

(b.) The Defendant acknowledges that the Law Firm gauges the potential outcomes of a case based on the information given by the Defendant in the Client Intake Form and the Defendant’s driving record. The Defendant takes responsibility for all the information listed in the Questionnaire, and acknowledges that any errors in the Legal Service Questionnaire may cause the Legal opinions of the Law Firm to not apply to the actual and correct information pertaining to the Defendant's case.

(c). The Defendant understands that for drivers licensed in North Carolina, there are limitations on the use of a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC). For insurance purposes, a driver can obtain only one (1) PJC per household every three (3) years. Thus, if one member of a household receives more than one (1) PJC in three (3) years, the insurance premiums will likely rise. The Law Firm will only have access to the Defendant's driving record. Therefore the Defendant agrees to inform the Law Firm, in writing, if any member in their household has received a PJC in the last three (3) years. Absent any writing to the contrary, the Law Firm will rely on the Defendant's driving record and assume that there are no other household members who have received a PJC in the last three (3) years. PJCs will not be accepted by the Department of Motor Vehicles for the State of North Carolina for those drivers who hold

Commercial Driver's License (CDL) endorsements. It is the responsibility of the Defendant to inform the Law Firm in writing of any CDL endorsements they hold.
