Not every lawyer can handle all cases on their desk, so referrals are an important part of the legal business. Lawyers refer cases because they are too busy, are not an expert in a specific field or cannot practice in a certain jurisdiction. Whatever your reason for using a case referral service, your discovery of the AppearMe app will be a step forward in your legal career and here is why.
AppearMe Charges No Fee to Refer Cases
AppearMe is a web and mobile app that helps attorneys to refer cases as well as to find a court appearance attorney, deposition attorney and a court reporter. When it comes to case referrals, AppearMe charges no fee. Basically, you can find an attorney free of charge with the application and earn a referral fee depending on state rules and regulations.
These fees differ from state to state. For example, under New York Codes, the referring attorney must perform some work or assume ”joint responsibility” for the case. The fee must also be proportionate to the part of services rendered by each lawyer. In Texas, unlike in New York, a lawyer does not need to perform any amount of work in order to collect a referral fee. As in the case of New York, the client must approve the arrangement in writing. It’s up to you to check the state regulations and comply with the bar rules.
Attorneys with Active License Get Into the System of AppearMe
One of the preconditions for case referrals is that the referring attorney must not refer a case to a non-lawyer. With AppearMe, you don’t need to worry about non-lawyers. All lawyers are attorneys with an active license and without disciplinary history. The AppearMe staff checks this data and only after verification the legal professionals become users.
Refer Cases in Different Jurisdictions
Sometimes lawyers refer cases because they don’t have the right to practice law in a certain jurisdiction. AppearMe has registered attorneys in the states of California, New York, Texas, Nevada, Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, Washington, Oregon, and Arizona. An attorney in California that receives a case in New York can refer to an attorney in New York through the portal and still earn a referral fee.
Track Referral Fees
When a legal professional accepts your offer, the application will register the acceptance, and you can track the referral fees. All fees must be honored and paid in accordance to each state’s bar rules and regulations.
Refer Cases to Attorneys Experienced in Various Practice Areas
All lawyers registered with AppearMe have extensive experience in a number of practice areas, including but not limited to the following:
- Civil Case
- Criminal Cases
- Family Law
- Administrative Law.
When attorneys claim for your referral, you can screen profiles of 5 and more attorneys and choose the best fit for your case. The pre-screening option allows the referring attorney to choose the attorney that can best perform the task. You can also communicate with the attorney to find out more specifics about his or her competence.
