I’m an associate at a PI firm. I’ve been asked to help find a lawyer for an acquaintance in another state in a PI sub-specialty that my firm does not practice in. If I help him find a good lawyer can I take a referral fee? How do I ensure I get paid? Is 1/3 of the fee standard?

Be sure to review that state’s rules for professional conduct. Most states require some division of the work/responsibility to earn the referral fee. Massachusetts, for example, does not and permits a referral fee for just picking up the phone.

In Massachusetts, my firm’s customary referral fee is 1/3 of our 1/3. Not sure what other firms do, though.

Yes on referral fee. Usually need to have a written agreement signed by attorneys and client. Anything from 15-33% is normal depending on factors.
