Foster Law LLC maintains close professional relationships with attorneys and law firms across the United States. The process is simple: lawyers refer personal injury cases to our firm in exchange for a percentage of our attorney’s fees earned on the case.
For instance, maybe a friend, co-worker, family member, or neighbor has approached you with a personal injury matter because they know you are in the legal profession. You may never have handled a personal injury case before, but you want to make sure that this individual receives quality legal representation that will yield the very best results. If you refer that case to us, you will be entitled to a portion of the attorney’s fees when the case is resolved.
If you do not handle personal injury matters, your client deserves the knowledge and experience we can offer. Even if you do handle some personal injury cases, some matters may require additional experience, talent, and resources that we can offer. If you are handling a personal injury case but are concerned that you don’t have the time or resources to try the case or fight the defendants, you may want to consider referring the case to us.
No matter what the case is about or what parties are involved, we promise to honor the original client relationship and will never infringe upon that relationship.
STATE BAR RULES AUTHORIZE FEE SHARING BETWEEN LAWYERS
Lawyers may mistakenly believe they are not allowed to accept a referral fee. The State Bar of Alabama and State Bar of Georgia authorize lawyers to share fees on a case so long as certain basic requirements are met, such as client approval of the fee sharing arrangement. We comply with all State Bar rules when entering into fee sharing agreements, and we pay referral fees at prevailing rates.
ASSOCIATIONS WITH OTHER LAWYERS AND LAW FIRMS
Foster Law LLC also “associates” with other lawyers and law firms on cases that have already begun.
In situations where a case has become more complicated or more difficult than first anticipated, our firm is here to help. Where appropriate, we will enter into an association agreement with you or your firm which allocates fees, costs, and work responsibility between our firm and yours. This way, the referring lawyer or law firm stays actively involved on the case, without being forced to handle it alone.
