A recap of another great month of referrals, collaboration and guest blog articles in Law Firm Suites’ Downtown shared law office space.

March Referral Recap

We’d like to give special thanks to the following attorneys who referred client matters to their Law Firm Suites colleagues during the month of March:

  • Consumer bankruptcy attorney, Tanya Dwyer, referred an estate planning case to a LFS Trusts and Estates attorney, a project with a potential $5,000 in fees.
  • Matrimonial attorney, Rachel Silberstein, referred an adoption case to a LFS family attorney, a project with a potential $5,500 in fees.
  • Entertainment law attorney, Francelina Perdomo, referred a landlord/tenant litigation case to a LFS real estate attorney, a project with a potential $3,000 in fees.
  • Intellectual Property attorney, Henry Cittone, referred a bankruptcy case to a LFS commercial bankruptcy attorney, a project with a potential of $40,000 in fees.
  • Commercial litigator, Frank Monteleone, referred an employment litigation case to a LFS employment lawyer, a project with a potential $10,000 in fees.
  • Criminal defense attorney, Karen Charrington, referred an asylum case to a LFS immigration attorney, a project with a potential $5,000 in fees.
  • Oil and land-use attorney, R. Jason Huf, referred a divorce case to a LFS family law  attorney, a project with a potential $6,000 in fees.
  • IP and sports law attorney, Stephen Kunen, referred a landlord/tenant case to a LFS commercial litigator, a project with a potential $1,000 in fees.
  • Wage and hour attorney, Joshua Parkhurst, referred a H1B case to a LFS immigration attorney, a project with a potential $7,000 in fees.

Of course, these referrals only represent those that we were aware of (because they were coordinated through LFS staff or clients told us about them). Every month there are dozens of other referrals that take place without our direct involvement or knowledge. Want your efforts recognized? Just let us know when you’ve referred a case to another LFS client!
