The vast majority of my clients come to me by way of referral from other lawyers. I appreciate the confidence shown by referral counsel and nothing makes me happier than paying a referral fee to referring lawyers. In recent years two Michigan lawyers received referral fees on individual cases of $1,000,000 or more. Another Macomb County lawyer received a referral fee of $850,000.
The settlements in these cases are examples of the results that can be obtained only after years of experience and the willingness, on occasion, to take a meritorious case to a jury. Insurance companies respect lawyers who have demonstrated an ability to obtain verdicts that are many times larger than the pretrial settlement offers.
