Referring Attorneys

Jeffrey D. Stulberg has a proven record of achieving outstanding results for his clients. Because of the firm’s strong reputation within the legal community, a significant number of our cases are referred by other lawyers. Many of our referrals are received from lawyers who do not handle personal injury, medical malpractice, criminal defense, employment law or contingent fee cases. We also receive referrals from other personal injury law firms that do not have the time, expertise or capital resources to properly pursue particular cases, such as those involving catastrophic injury.

Co-Counsel and Referral Fees

Jeffrey D. Stulberg, A Law Corporation, can help you generate a source of income with no overhead. We routinely pay referral fees to other lawyers in accordance with the State Bar of California, Rules of Professional Conduct. State Bar rules prohibit referral fees being paid to non-lawyers and require the written consent of the referred client on attorney-referred cases. The Rules of Professional Conduct also allow us to serve as co-counsel with “out-of-the-area” lawyers and receive appropriate referral fees on those cases. Again, the client's prior consent is required.
