Attorneys receiving claims direct from other Attorneys of this Agency may, upon collection, retain two-thirds of the collection fee, one-third being due the Attorney from whom claim was received, and to whom proceeds and fees should be remitted at once.

Claims settled by clients subject to the above rates.

Charges of examination of records at the usual rates for such service. All collections subject to above rates. Except in cities where rates are fixed by Bar Associations.
