Fee Splitting and Co-Counsel Fees
Fee splitting is discussed in Rule 1.5 of the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct. The Rule allows for fee splitting if certain conditions are met, the most important of which involves the consent of the client to the arrangement. The client must be informed of the existence of the agreement, the division of labor and responsibilities, and the economic benefits to accrue to each attorney (Rule 1.5(f)).
Associating with Other Lawyers on Personal Injury Cases
We understand and respect the relationship between referring attorneys and their clients. We welcome the expertise referring attorneys bring to the table when associating on catastrophic injury cases and we pay referral fees in recognition of their valuable contribution (in accordance with the Rules of Professional Conduct). We look forward to working with you on your next case.
Our firm represents injured clients in a variety of personal injury practice areas including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
