Accepting Attorney Referrals for Houston Personal Injury Cases
The personal injury attorneys at Livingston & Flowers, P.L.L.C. accept referrals from other attorneys who need to refer their case and want to ensure their clients receive high-quality representation and exceptional client service. We have accepted referrals from criminal defense lawyers, family law attorneys and even other Houston personal injury attorneys who recognize that the case requires a level of expertise and/or resources beyond their capability. We are happy to take on these challenges and provide your clients with the utmost in client care and representation based on decades of experience and success.
Referrals are an ethical and beneficial way to see that clients are represented
In 2004, the State Bar of Texas Referral Fee Task Force conducted an in-depth review of attorney referrals. This task force found that referrals do not harm clients and are actually a beneficial means of seeing that clients get the representation they need. The results of the 2004 study led to the drafting of Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.04 in 2005, which is the form of the rule applicable to attorney referrals in Texas to this day.
Rule 1.04 requires that any referral is approved by the client in writing. The rules also state that the referring attorney has an ethical duty to see that the client will be adequately represented. We invite you to explore our website, including our main areas of practice, the backgrounds of our attorneys, and the results we have achieved for our clients in more than 23 years of legal practice. We also encourage you to give us a call and get to know us. We believe our firm is competent to handle any PI matter, but we’ll always let you know before we accept your referral if we believe the representation is within our capability and resources to handle competently and successfully. Of course, we are happy to pay referral fees in accordance with applicable Texas rules.
