Sometimes due to the location of a lawsuit or the specialized knowledge required for a specific case, lawyers acting in the best interest of their client need to look for a law firm to assist them as co–counsel. At Heller, Gallagher & Finley, LLP we welcome referrals from attorneys. We have been referred cases from lawyers all over the State of Missouri, and other states including Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Louisiana, and Washington. Rule 4 – 1.5 (e) of the Rules of Professional Conduct states that a division of fee between lawyers who are not in the same firm may be made. The comments for that rule state that this most often occurs … “when the fee is contingent and the division is between a referring lawyer and a trial specialist.”
We believe that the AV rating of all of our partners reflects the reputation and integrity of our law firm for working with other lawyers to best serve the clients. Upon request we will supply references to referring attorneys to allow the referring attorney to decide if our Firm is the right choice for their client.
