Lawyer Referrals and Co-Counsel Agreements
We take pride in our attorneys’ extensive experience and knowledge, and we dedicate ourselves to providing our clients with personalized attention and service. Our lawyers are skilled advocates, litigators, and negotiators and work tirelessly to help resolve each case in our client’s favor.
Over the years we have found the most rewarding cases are those sent to us by other attorneys and cases where we work together with other counsel to secure a great result for our client.
Also, there are times when we cannot always take someone on as a client. In these instances, we are happy to refer potential clients to other law practices who may be better positioned to serve that person, as well as accept referrals from other firms should we be able to provide the necessary services. In addition, we may engage in co-counsel agreements so long as they are beneficial to the client, the other firm, and our legal team.
Fee Sharing and Referral Fees
Our office offers generous fee sharing and referral fees for cases sent to our firm where permitted under our rules of ethics. Attorneys who refer cases to our office deserve to be compensated for the time they have in invested in the case they entrusted with our office. Further, we have worked together with counsel in pre-suit and trial situations under fee sharing arrangements, which has proven to be beneficial to our clients.
When we are contacted by someone in need of legal services, we first determine whether we are the right fit for this person. Due to certain circumstances, such as niche practice areas, we cannot assist every person who calls us for legal help. In these situations, we often try to find another attorney or firm who may be a better fit or can help in ways that we cannot.
Similarly, we accept client referrals from fellow attorneys who may not be able to take on a certain case. If your law firm is unable to currently provide services to a client or potential client for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Referrals are not the only option clients and firms have when faced with an unusual case. In some situations a co-counsel agreement may be a good choice, allowing a client to stay with their attorney who can then work alongside another firm to utilize that lawyer or team’s strengths for the benefit of the client.
There are many reasons for joining a co-counsel agreement, such as gaining the support of another attorney with knowledge in different practice areas, increasing resources for the case, and educating an attorney on legal practice areas while he/she maintains a lead role on the case.
