Referrals Exchanged & Success Stories – May 2014

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

May 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:

  • Art Law attorney, Richard Lehun, referred a contested dispute to a LFS commercial litigator, a project with a potential $30,000 in fees.
  • Family law attorney, Najmul Alam, referred a dog-bite case to a LFS personal injury attorney a project with a potential $100,000 in fees.
  • Commercial litigator, Martin Shell, referred per diem work to a LFS transactional attorney, a continuing project worth $2,000 in fees.
  • Personal Injury Attorney, Yana Rubin, referred the trial portion of a slip and fall case to a LFS New Jersey based personal injury attorney a project with a potential $20,000 in fees.
  • Sports Law and IP attorney, Stephen Kunen, referred a Chapter 7 case to a LFS consumer bankruptcy attorney, a project with a potential of $4,000 in fees.
  • Immigration attorney, Irene Vaisman, referred a criminal case  to a LFS criminal defense attorney, a project with a potential $3,000 in fees.
  • International business law firm, Thomas Martin LLP, referred a New Jersey based collections case, a project with a potential of $13,000 in fees.
  • Construction Law firm, Finkelstein Platt LLP, referred an intellectual property case to a LFS IP litigation firm, a project with a potential $8,000 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!

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.  

  • Construction Law firm, Finkelstein Platt LLP, helped Personal Injury attorney, Michael Grossman decipher an opaque corporate transactional agreement.
  • Employment Law attorney, Albert Rizzo, assisted PI attorney, Yana Rubin, in deciding if they was a pre-existing wrongful termination COA in an on-going vicarious liability case.
