What to Know Before Agreeing to Fee Splitting and an Attorney Referral Fee
As mentioned, regulations will vary from state to state, meaning that fee-splitting agreements forms may change, too. There are many free forms available online, but to ensure that everything you do is absolutely accurate, you should be sure to explore your state law library for full information relating to these fee-splitting agreement forms.These forms are typically from the perspective of the client, whereby the individual grants permission to two or more attorneys to either jointly represent them, or for one attorney to take over the case and provide representation. The client will also have to give consent, in the agreement form, for the fee to be split between the two according to the proportion of the work performed by each.
