3) IF YOU ARE AN ATTORNEY CONSIDERING RETAINING CO-COUNSEL:
The Rules of Professional Conduct of the Florida Bar allow us to pay a referral fee to other lawyers, including out of state lawyers. The client must consent, and the referring attorney must sign the fee contract and agree to be legally responsible to the client for the case just as if he were the primary attorney. The referring attorney must also be available to consult with the client should the client wish. The approved referral fee is 25% of the total fee charged, and we advance all expenses of the case. With prior client and court permission, we are sometimes able to divide the work on the case with the referring attorney and exceed the standard referral fee in proportion to the division of work in the case. Call us at 1- (800) 974-4929.
