Flanzig and Flanzig maintains a close professional relationships with other attorneys and law firms throughout New York and nationwide. Our practice has been built and maintained by referrals from other lawyers who are given cases they cannot handle. Either they don't practice Personal Injury Litigation, don't try cases, or require the experience and expertise we can provide in helping them get the best results for their clients.
Regardless of the reason, when another attorney seeks our assistance, we recognize that the referring counsel's name and reputation are forever associated with the case. Cases are referred to our firm with confidence and without reservation because referring lawyers know that we provide the highest degree of professionalism, quality legal work, and compassion to our cases and our clients. We will never let a referring attorney hear from the client that phone calls are not being returned or that their case is moving too slow. This is simply not how we operate.
We recognize that some referring attorneys prefer to remain significantly involved in a case while others are comfortable with less involvement. Participation in each case varies with the case's requirements. In some cases referring counsel acts as a liaison with clients while in other cases there is a true and equal co-counsel relationship that develops.
In every case referred to the firm, Flanzig and Flanzig shares the attorney's fee with the referring co-counsel in compliance with New York Rule DR 2-107(A). In fact, in the last 6 months we have paid out over a quarter of a million dollars in participation fee's in accordance the court's rules.
