Florida Bar rules allow attorneys in Florida to refer cases to each other
and receive a percentage of the outcome for that case as a nominal fee.
The maximum percentage an attorney in Florida can earn from a case he
or she referred to another attorney is 25% of the total amount of money
that case eventually settles for, or the award at trial, whichever comes first.
But a lot of attorneys in Florida don't play by those rules. Some attorneys
don't honor the fee to the original referring attorney. And it's
easy to forget about your fee if you referred a case - personal injury
cases, especially if they go to litigation, can take years to resolve.
As a referring attorney that is entitled to a percentage fee, you may
very simply forget that you made that referral in the first place, and
consequently, forfeit your earned fee.
But not here at The Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb.
One of the things we pride ourselves on is our professional and courteous
relationship with our fellow attorneys that refer cases to our office.
We recognize that sometimes cases are just too complex or difficult to
handle - cases like nursing home abuse or wrongful death - and it just
makes more sense to refer them out to us.
Likewise, we receive cases requiring such complex knowledge and experience
in areas of law that we don't practice, that indeed, in those situations
it makes sense for us to refer cases out, too.
Our referral relationships are as solid as cement with our partners. We
created a print ad this year that explains why. It's called "7
BIG Reasons To Refer A Case To Us", and it currently runs every month
in the Palm Beach County Bar Association newsletter and the Martin County
Bar Association newsletter,
