The Law Offices of Jay P. Renneisen welcomes referrals from other lawyers. The firm considers a client referral the highest compliment one lawyer 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 Rule 2-200 and the other rules of professional conduct, the Law Offices of Jay P. Renneisen pays referral fees to attorneys who send their clients to be represented by this office. Referral fees are calculated as a percentage of the fee earned by this office (for example, 25% of the contingent fee negotiated between the Law Offices of Jay P. Renneisen and the referred client). 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 are 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.
