Referrals Exchanged & Success Stories – July 2014

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

July 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:

  • Intellectual Property attorney, Alexendra Arneri, referred a wrongful eviction case to a LFS Landlord Tenant lawyer, a project with a potential $7,500 in fees.
  • Immigration attorney, Shari Moidel, referred a wrongful conviction case to a LFS criminal defense and civil rights attorney, a project with a potential $40,000 in fees.
  • Complex commercial litigator, Alan Gelb, referred a will and trust creation to a LFS T&E attorney, a project worth $2,500 in fees.
  • Family Law attorney, Najmul Alam, referred a contingency based injury case to a LFS Personal Injury attorney, a project with a potential $150,000 in fees.
  • Criminal Defense attorney, Noreen Travers, referred two divorce cases to a LFS Matrimonial attorney, projects with a potential $10,000 in fees,
  • Family Law attorney, Najmul Alam, referred a mortgage defense and contemporaneous real estate matter to a LFS Real Estate Litigation attorney, a project with a potential $7,500 in fees.
  • Art Law and Litigation attorney, Richard Lehun, referred a patent to case to a LFS Intellectual Property law firm, a project with a potential $5,000 in fees.
  • Corporate Start-Up and Transactional attorney, Megan Eiss-Proctor, referred a resedential real estate litigation to a LFS LL/T firm, a project with a potential $15,000 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!

This month, Joleena’s article, Why Solo Attorneys Need to Designate Time for Firm Administration speaks to the importance of organization and prioritizing “busy work” that is necessary for solo practice success. Joleena’s blog, Things I Wish I Knew Before Going Solo offers practical advice to attorneys who are thinking about choosing self-employment that is a direct result of personal experience.


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.  

  • Employment law attorney, Joshua Parkhurst, and Immigration attorney, Dennis Mulligan worked in tandem to help a client whose legal issues overflowed into both of their respective practice areas. By leveraging each other’s knowledge, they provided more thorough representation.
  • Commercial litigator, Martin Shell, worked with Matrimonial attorney, Anne McCarthy, concerning the best course of action with respect to commercial marital properties that had to be sold.
