Referrals in Riverside

Our Referral Fee Policy

Ryneal & Ryneal, a Law Corporation welcomes referrals from other attorneys in the Inland Empire and throughout California. The firm considers client case referrals the highest compliment one lawyer can pay to another, and we eagerly welcome the opportunity to act as co-counsel, joint counsel, or assume the entire representation of clients on behalf of fellow referring attorneys.

Consistent with State Bar Rule 2-200, Ryneal & Ryneal pays referral fees to other attorneys who refer their clients for representation in their specific personal injury or wrongful death cases. The referral fees are calculated as a percentage of the fee earned by this office in a given case. The referral fee percentage ranges anywhere from between 33 1/3% up to 40% of the attorney’s fees earned depending on the nature of the case, its complexity, and at what stage of the litigation process the referral of the case is made to Ryneal & Ryneal.

As required by California State Bar rules, all referral fee arrangements are fully disclosed to their client who consents in writing to the referral fee agreement between Ryneal & Ryneal and the referring attorney. The referral fee agreement does not, of course, increase the fee owed ultimately by the client. It is simply an agreement between counsel, consented to by the client, to share the fee the client agrees to pay this office.

Each potential case referral is promptly considered by this office on a case by case basis. Ryneal & Ryneal has traditionally accepted referrals on cases at all different stages of litigation, including referrals made shortly after the accident occurs, others after litigation has been filed, and even cases where the referral is made shortly before trial.

If an attorney is interested in potentially referring a case to the law offices of Ryneal & Ryneal, or has any questions regarding the firm’s referral fee policy, they are encouraged to contact any of the firm’s attorneys to discuss these matters prior to making the referral.
