Will you be my attorney or will you refer my case to another attorney?
In all cases, the success of your case and maximizing the portion of any settlement or award that you receive receives prime consideration.
Generally our policies are:
We reserve the options to handle your case or to refer your case, based on the above factors and other considerations, including your desires and your permission.
- If the case is in the state of one of the attorneys listed on footlaw.com, with a few exceptions, one of the footlaw.com attorneys will handle your case.
- In cases where the footlaw.com attorney is not admitted to the bar of your state, the footlaw.com attorney will often obtain local co-counsel to assist in your case and we will work together with the local counsel.
- In instances where the local counsel or the law firm prefers to handle the entire case, we will remain available in a consultation capacity.
- In those cases where your case value may be low, it is often to your benefit to have the footlaw.com attorney refer the case to a local attorney and still remain in a consultation capacity.
