Top five reasons a lawyer should give criminal defense referrals to LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C.
When you refer a client to LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., that individual remains your referral even for the purpose of future payments on their account. As payments are made on the fees charged in the case, your referral percentage will be protected and honored. With other firms, referral fees are sometimes “forgotten” due to the passage of time. We have a system at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., that ensures that this type of error never occurs and you will not have to worry about future payments. Finally, if the client should ever ask us for a referral to another attorney, we will always refer him or her back to you. We do not raise fees for clients to compensate for referral fees.
2. Probability of Retention
There is no way to sugar coat this…we are experts at getting retained. In a system where competition for cases can be fierce, it is not unusual to be negotiating fees with a potential client who is also conversing with two or more other heavy hitters in the area. Over the past two decades of working together, Randy and I have become proficient at “signing up the client.” We have developed a way of connecting with potential clients on a meaningful, personal level that results in a sense of confidence, and hope that is unparalleled with other criminal defense firms and solo practitioners. When you refer a case to LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., there is a high probability that we will be retained. Our high retention rate justifies your investment of trust in us as a potential referral destination. A referral to an attorney who does not get hired is a missed opportunity.
