Referrals Exchanged & Success Stories – April 2014

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

April 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:

  • Tax attorney, James Shorter, referred a collections case to a LFS judgment enforcement attorney, a project with a potential $6,000 in fees.
  • Family law attorney, Najmul Alam, referred a wrongful arrest case to a LFS criminal defense attorney, a project with a potential $4,500 in fees.
  • Commercial litigator, Martin Shell, referred on-going per diem work to a LFS matrimonial attorney, a continuing project worth $10,000 in fees.
  • A Law Firm Suites transactional attorney referred a plaintiff based employment law case to a LFS Wage & Hour attorney, a project with a potential $8,000 in fees.
  • Transactional attorney, Megan Eiss-Proctor referred a reckless criminal endangerment of property case to a LFS criminal defense lawyer, a project with a potential $2,000 in fees.
  • Matrimonial and adoption attorney, Joleena Louis, referred a divorce case to a NJ licensed LFS family law attorney, a project with a potential $5,000 in fees.
  • Personal injury attorney, Jennifer Champagne, referred a prenuptial agreement to a LFS matrimonial attorney, a project with a potential $1,000 in fees.
  • Corporate immigration attorney, Stuart Reich, referred a deportation case to a LFS asylum and deportation attorney, a project with a potential $2,000 in fees.
  • Immigration attorney, Irene Vaisman referred a criminal matter to a LFS criminal defense attorney, a project with a potential $1,500 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!

April Guest Bloggers


Solo Attorneys: Plan For DisasterThomas K. Chu. Law Firm Suites virtual office client, Thomas K. Chu, wrote a well-received guest blog post on April 24, 2014, titled: Solo Attorneys: Plan For Disaster. In it, Thom provides insight on how solo attorneys failing to proactively “get their house in order” can reap grave consequences on their loved ones. Basically, it promotes the old adage: proper planning prevents poor performance.

shared law office spaceVivian Sobers. Commercial litigation attorney and Law Firm Suites rising star, Vivian Sobers, penned the most viewed post on the Community Counsel blog last month: My Clients are Pistachios.  In her piece, she candidly discusses how sometimes you have to overlook the monetary value of a case and realize that the client is just not a good fit. Vivian’s blog series, Young, Hungry & Committed which describes her starting a solo law practice months after law school graduation, is published every Friday afternoon.


Community Collaborators

Lending a hand to help a colleague with a problem is part of what makes the Law Firm Suites’ Community great. We know of several “hallway” advice sessions that took place over the past month, but the following are examples of attorneys going “above and beyond” to help their colleagues.  

  • During a recent vacation, International taxation attorney, Benjamin Tolub, left an email away message designating two LFS attorneys as primary contacts for his existing contacts, should a cause of action arise.
  • Religious land use and non-profit formation attorney, Robert Greene, assisted Wage & Hour attorney, Joshua Parkhurst with drafting a particularly tricky clause in a non-profit governance agreement.
