The Law Offices of Ronald B. Schwartz welcomes referrals from other attorneys. The firm considers a client referral the highest compliment one attorney can pay to another, and we welcome the opportunity to co-counsel, joint venture or assume the representation of clients on behalf of fellow attorneys.
In appropriate cases, and consistent with State Bar Rules and the other rules of professional conduct, The Law Offices of Ronald B. Schwartz will pay a referral fee to attorneys who send their clients to be represented by this firm. Referral fees are calculated as a percentage of the fee earned by this office and the referral fee percentage is negotiable, and it varies depending on the nature of the case, its complexity, which stage of litigation the matter is in, and the fee arrangement with the client.
As required by State Bar rules, all referral fee agreements will be fully disclosed to the client, who must consent to the arrangement. The referral fee agreement does not increase the fee owed by the client. It is simply an agreement among counsel to allocate the fee that the client agrees to pay this office.
The Law Offices of Ronald B. Schwartz have traditionally accepted referrals of matters at all different stages of litigation. Some referrals are made shortly after the incident occurs, others are made shortly before trial, and every step in between. Each potential referral is promptly considered by the firm on a case by case basis.
