Do I have to pay fees to both law firms when my case is referredAt The Button Law Firm, we understand that legal matters can be complex and may require knowledge and experience in various areas of law. In some cases, we may need to refer you to another attorney who is knowledgeable in a specific field to better address your needs. A common concern for clients is whether they will be responsible for paying fees to our firm and the referral attorney. This FAQ article will address this question from The Button Law Firm's perspective.

The simple answer is no; the law firms share the contingency fee.

Why Would The Button Law Firm Refer Me to Another Attorney?

The Button Law Firm is dedicated to providing the best legal representation and services to our clients. Sometimes, the complexity or specialized nature of a case requires an attorney's knowledge of a specific focus of law. We refer clients to other attorneys when it is in their best interest to receive specialized legal counsel to achieve the best possible outcome for their case.

Will I Have to Pay Fees to Both The Button Law Firm and the Referral Attorney?

You will not have to pay fees to both The Button Law Firm and the referral attorney separately. When we refer you to another attorney, it is common for attorneys to work out arrangements to ensure that you are not financially burdened by dual fees. The two firms will share the total contingency fee and agree on how it is split. The fee structure is designed to be fair and equitable for the client.

How Does the Fee Arrangement Work When You Refer Me to Another Attorney?

When we refer you to another attorney, we typically have an agreement with that attorney. This agreement may involve fee-sharing arrangements, joint representation, or other methods to ensure that you only pay one set of fees and that those fees are split fairly between the attorneys involved. The specifics of the fee arrangement will be discussed with you and documented clearly and transparently.

Will My Fees Increase If You Refer Me to Another Attorney?

The referral to another attorney will not increase your fees. While you may incur additional costs related to the specialized legal services required for your case, the overall goal is to ensure you receive the best representation without causing undue financial hardship. Before making any referrals, we will discuss any potential changes in fees or billing structures with you.

Absolutely. We value your input and preferences. At BLF, we focus on daycare injury cases and have handled complex and catastrophic lawsuits for years around the country. We have met many amazing attorneys, and we prefer to only refer you to people that we trust.

However, if you have a specific preference regarding the type of attorney, geographical location, or experience type, we can connect you with someone in our network who best suits your needs.

Can I Stay with The Button Law Firm If I Don't Want to Work with The Referred Attorney?
