Attorney Referrals and Co-Counsel Relationships
Throughout our 25-year history, The Collins Law Firm has gratefully accepted from other lawyers referrals of a wide variety of personal injury and environmental cases. We have also been proud to work with other firms as co-counsel in these cases. And when those cases successfully resolve, we are honored to pay significant referral and co-counsel fees. In fact, in a single case last year, we paid co-counsel fees of nearly $2.5 million.
This website details the kinds of cases that we handle that often involve referring attorneys and co-counsel. Those cases include:Personal Injury Cases
- Wrongful Death
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Truck, Car and Motorcycle Accidents
- Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
- Medical Malpractice
- Defective Drugs and Products
- Injury or Death Due to Toxic Chemical Exposure
- Groundwater Contamination
- Contamination of Municipal Water
- Vapor Intrusion (Intrusion of Toxic Chemicals into the Air in Homes and Business)
Over the years we have compiled a remarkable track record of success on these kinds of cases.
The cases referred to us, or on which we co-counsel with other lawyers, typically involve serious injury to life or property. Sometimes, sadly, someone has died. The cases usually require scientifically complex issues to be resolved, and entail prolonged and expensive litigation against a corporation or insurance company willing to use its massive resource advantage to try to deny just compensation to the victim. It is not unusual for us to have to invest thousands of lawyer hours and to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on experts.
In other words, the cases are not only very important, but also very risky. Many firms don’t care to shoulder that kind of risk, or just have no experience with such cases.
That’s where we can help. Refer your case to us, or co-counsel with us, and we can bring our experience and resources to bear, to “level the playing field”, so that the injured victim can get justice.Contact Us with Your Personal Injury, Environmental Law, or Business Law Referral
