There is no question that our presence on any case will instantly increase the value, which will benefit the client and the referral attorney.
Attorney s who refer cases to other litigation firms often complain that other firms not only DON’T provide bigger results, but phone calls aren’t returned, clients complain that there is no communication, and the referral attorney is forgotten until the referral fee check is issued.
We cherish our relationships with our referral attorneys and our clients. Most of the referral attorneys we work with consider us the best litigation firm in the state of California, and will refer cases only to us.
Attorney s always tell us that as soon as defense counsel or the defendant insurance company is notified that we are involved in the case, their settlement offer immediately and substantially increases.
We are an experienced trial firm, and if an attorney wishes to be involved in the litigation, and learn from the best in the business, C&Z welcomes the opportunity to train them every step of the way by involving them in the strategy and litigation process of the case. We offer a specialized program for attorneys who wish to stay involved in the progress of the case, and always welcome opportunities to teach attorneys who wish to learn and be involved.
STATE BAR REQUIREMENTS
C&Z complies with all California State Bar rules when entering into fee sharing agreements with other lawyers. The State Bar of California authorized lawyers to share fees on a case as long as the client agrees to the arrangement in writing.
C&Z will enter into fee-sharing agreements with lawyers, regardless of their area of practice.
The amount of the referral fee percentage agreed to depends on the individual circumstances of each case and is determined on a case-by-case basis. It is often found that, by involving C&Z in their case, the result of the case increases not only the net amount to the client, but larger fees to the referral attorney, due to the increased value provided by C&Z.
Feel free to contact C&Z to discuss any case, regardless of whether or not we get involved, we will be happy to help and offer any sort of advice. By even following our advice, free of charge, the you will find that the insurance company and defendant will most likely be willing to pay more to settle the case.
Paul Zuckerman often says, “A rising tide floats all boats,” and is happy to offer advice to any plaintiff lawyer who wants to increase offers for their client.
