Let’s Work Together    

We Welcome Attorney Employment Law Referrals

At Whitehead Employment Law we have dedicated ourselves to being the best we can be in our area of expertise. An essential skill for all attorneys is knowing when you are able and unable to help your client. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to help your clients by either referring them to us or bringing us in as co-counsel to collaborate with you and share our experience and expertise. 

We have set up a process to make this simple and ensure that clients are immediately taken care of.  

We have two options. We leave it up to the referring attorney to determine what is best for their client.


Direct Referral to Whitehead Employment Law: 

Attorneys who refer Clients to us to handle their cases from start to finish will receive 25% of our fee when the case is resolved. 

Co-Counsel with Whitehead Employment Law: 

Attorneys who want to stay actively engaged in the case, but believe additional resources and expertise could help their Clients should consider bringing us into the matter as co-counsel. Depending on your level of involvement in the case, we pay referral fees up to 50%. For attorneys who simply want us to take the case over for them, the referral fees may be lower.  

This is ideal for attorneys who want to collaborate with experienced attorneys on their cases rather than simply referring them out. You will receive a referral fee and learn how to better litigate all of your cases.

Are Attorney Referral Fees Allowed in California?

California allows lawyers to collect a referral fee simply for handing a case over to a different lawyer, even if they have never formally participated in the legal case. It seems fairly straightforward but there are also things that must be done in order to make sure you are not violating any of the California rules of professional conduct.
