Do you have a case, but aren't licensed in Missouri or Illinois or you don't specialize in personal injury law and/or medical malpractice? If so, consider contacting Sumner Law Group,our personal injury law firm. We welcome co-counsel relationships with other attorneys.
In fact, it has been with co-counsel that our firm has obtained several very large personal injury jury verdicts for clients who suffered multiple injuries. Theses sorts of verdicts are not unusual for The Sumner Law Group. Many of our verdicts are a direct result of combining the forces of two law firms with a united mission of helping our injured client.
Depending upon the case, we are willing to advance the court costs and expert fees so long as this is the desired relationship with the referring lawyer or law firm and our law firm.
Because we have handled so many types of significant personal injury litigation cases, we have developed many relationships with not only medical experts, but with liability related experts throughout the United States.
our 4-step process when working with co-counsel referrals:
Step1: Once you contact us with a potential referral, we'll discuss the percentage of the co-counsel fee split to you, and agree on this.
Step 2: The client is apprised of the relationship of the referring lawyer and our law firm.
Step 3: A fee agreement is provided to the client, which sets forth the respective attorney responsibilities and relationships.
Step 4: At the time of resolution of the case, the relationship between the referring law firm and our law firm is stated.
