A $2500 retainer is required for new cases. New cases are billed a one-time initiation fee of 
$500.00 for file preparation, which includes scheduling, file management and filing/responding to 
record requests. CSI submits invoices each month to reflect work completed and payment is due upon 
receipt. Credit card authorization forms available upon request. File materials such as 
photographs, downloads, etc. are not releasable until the invoices have been submitted and payment 
received. Past due balances will incur a 1.5% monthly fee. Outstanding balances may result in the 
file being placed on hold. The retaining attorney is responsible for payment to Collision 
Specialists, Inc., not the attorney’s client.
Mediations, hearings and depositions require a minimum four (4) hour appearance fee as portions of 
the day have been blocked to accommodate for our appearance. When opposing counsel requests to take 
our deposition, it will be the responsibility of opposing counsel to pay the appearance fees, in 
addition to any time that exceeds the four (4) hour minimum. In the event that opposing counsel 
fails to pay submitted invoices in a timely manner, the retaining attorney will be responsible for 
the outstanding fees. CSI reserves the right to request appearance fees prior to the seating of the 
deposition. These fees must be received five business days before the seating of the deposition and 
if fees are not received, Collision Specialists, Inc. reserves the right to reschedule the 
deposition appearance until payment is received. If travel is required for the deposition, opposing 
counsel will be responsible for all additional expenses unless prior agreements have been made. 
Depositions, hearings, and trials will not be scheduled on any files which are past due.
During trial appearances, the day rate will be incorporated since the day will be blocked off of 
our calendar to eliminate scheduling conflicts.
The mere sharing of information with CSI by a potential client shall not obligate CSI to potential 
client or prevent CSI from contracting with other parties to the matter in the event that potential 
client elects not to retain CSI, including a signed agreement and retainer.
