Baradat & Paboojian receives case referrals from all types of lawyers and law firms. We take pride in our referral relationships and our ability to offer a percentage of our attorney’s fees to those referring lawyers.
Baradat & Paboojian has paid over $25 million in referral fees.
Baradat & Paboojian recognizes the importance of referral lawyers to our firm, and we believe that referring attorneys are doing a great service to their clients by involving us in the representation. Accordingly, we treat all referral lawyers with the utmost respect and promptly pay referral fees upon the resolution of a case.
Baradat & Paboojian complies with all State Bar rules when entering into fee-sharing agreements with other lawyers. The State Bar of California authorizes lawyers to share fees on a case as long as the client agrees to the arrangement in writing. To that end, our goal is to have all referral agreements authorized in writing by the client in advance of a case’s resolution so there is never a misunderstanding about the sharing of fees at the end of the case.
The amount of the referral fee percentage agreed to depends on the individual circumstances of each case and is determined on a case-by-case basis. Some of the factors evaluated in determining an appropriate fee-sharing percentage are: the type of case, the risk level, the anticipated costs, the desired level of involvement of the referring attorney, and the stage of the litigation. Baradat & Paboojian has always been able to reach an equitable fee-sharing arrangement with a referring attorney.
