Rapoport Law Offices, P.C., maintains close professional relationships with attorneys and law firms not only in the United States, but in other countries as well. Many of our clients have personal injury attorneys who have asked us to associate with them on the case or were referred to us by attorneys who do not practice personal injury law. Our practice has been built on referrals from past satisfied clients and other lawyers.
Lawyers who know us refer cases or associate with us because they know our core values, know the quality of our work and know our clients' best interests always come first. Lawyers who do not know us typically refer cases or associate with us due to our unique qualifications and the fact that we limit our practice to severe personal injury and wrongful death cases. This enables us to spend more time on each case than lawyers who handle larger case volumes. Most of our competitors do not limit their practice to severe personal injury and wrongful death cases.
Our past success and limited practice enable us to dedicate significant personnel and money to prosecuting severe personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our ability to staff and fund cases puts our clients on equal footing with the often financially powerful companies and individuals who are at fault in causing their devastating harm. Cases are referred to our firm with confidence because lawyers and our past clients know that we provide the highest degree of professionalism, quality legal work and compassion.
We generously share legal fees with lawyers who refer cases or associate with us in full compliance with all governing ethical rules. The ethical rules allow fee sharing because fee sharing benefits consumers by encouraging lawyers with less specialized practices to obtain help from lawyers with more specialized practices while still protecting their legitimate and substantial financial interest in the case.
