Trial Lawyers Dedicated to Excellence®
We proudly honor referrals from lawyers in Georgia and across the United States. Ultimately, when a colleague refers a case to our firm they expect our firm to maximize the client's results. We deliver.
Our aggressive litigation techniques and dedication to excellence make us a consistent choice for referring attorneys.
We have practiced with success in state and federal courts throughout Georgia for over a decade. We are familiar with the courts, communities, and jury pools in those jurisdictions.
We have a reputation for achieving outstanding results. We have a reputation for maximizing the value of our cases. We have a reputation for taking on the hard cases and winning.
Who Can Benefit From Our Referral Program?
Because the law, particularly plaintiff's cases, has become specialized, the referral of such cases in today's legal environment makes good business sense.
There are four types of attorneys who generally benefit from our referral program:
- Attorneys who do not handle personal injury, civil rights, or whistleblower cases
- Attorneys who do not have the specialization, capital, or resources to handle significant damage and complex litigation cases
- Attorneys from other jurisdictions who are unable to handle cases in Georgia
- Attorneys who need joint partnerships or multi-counsel relationships in high-profile and/or complex litigation cases
As a referring attorney, we treat you the way we would want to be treated if we referred you a case.
You are provided with regular updates. You are notified about the case at each critical stage and its ultimate resolution.
Most importantly, attorneys who participate in our referral program always know that they will receive their referral fee before we take any recovery in a case.
How Does Our Referral Program Work?
As a referring attorney, we know it is important to have confidence that your law firm's interests will be protected.
All referral agreements in Georgia must satisfy Georgia Bar Rule 1.5.
Under this Rule a division of a fee between lawyers who are not in the same firm may be made only if the division is in proportion to the services performed by each lawyer or, by written agreement with the client, each lawyer assumes joint responsibility for the representation. The client must also be advised of the share that each lawyer is to receive and must give consent to participation of all the lawyers involved.
Our fee sharing relationship is always clearly spelled out to the client in writing to protect your firm's interest in any recovery.
We generally pay a 33% referral fee for most contingency fee cases. However, as all referring attorneys understand, the facts of each case may justify a higher or lower referral fee depending on the liability, damages, or costs of a particular case. Likewise, if your firm is looking for a joint partnership or multi-counsel relationship, we will be glad to discuss alternative fee arrangements that maximize your client's interests.
If you have a case you would like to refer, or if you are interested in associating with us on a case, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
