West Coast Trial Lawyers receive case referrals from lawyers for cases such as wrongful death, car accidents, premises liabilities, and other serious personal injuries. Whether your firm needs an experienced litigation team or co-counsel to assist on a case, our presence can benefit your client by maximizing their recovery and, of course, to maximize the referral fee paid. We treat all referral lawyers with the utmost respect and pay referral fees upon the resolution of a case without delay.
West Coast Trial Lawyers complies with Rule 1.5.1 and all State Bar rules regarding fee-sharing agreements with attorneys. In accordance with the State Bar of California’s rules of procedure, we strive to have all referral agreements authorized in writing by the client in advance of a case’s resolution to prevent any misunderstandings about the sharing of fees.
Whether it’s corporate, defense, or criminal defense lawyers, we enter into fee-sharing agreements with all types of attorneys as permitted by law. The amount of the referral fee percentage agreed to will be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the unique circumstances of the case in question. Some of the factors that will come into play when determining the fee will include the type of case, its risk level, anticipated costs, desired level of involvement of the referring attorney, and the stage of the litigation.
West Coast Trial Lawyers will always prioritize reaching an equitable fee-sharing arrangement with a referring attorney.
Feel free to contact us if you have a case you would like to refer to us, want to joint venture with us, or if you are litigating a case that has reached a difficult stage and would like our input and assistance. We can aid in cases at any stage of litigation, depending upon the facts of each individual case, and can even associate in as counsel on the eve of mediation or trial.
