Flanzig and Flanzig maintains close professional relationships with other
attorneys and law firms throughout New York, as well as nationwide. Our
practice has been built and maintained by referrals from other lawyers
who sometimes receive calls for cases they cannot handle. A referral to
our office can also occur for other reasons. Some attorneys do not practice
Personal Injury litigation, and some do not focus on bike crash cases.
Other attorneys may handle personal injury cases, but are not
trial lawyers, meaning they do not try their own cases.
Regardless of the reason, when another attorney seeks our assistance, we
recognize that the referring counsel's name and reputation are forever
associated with the case. Cases are referred to our firm with confidence
and without reservation because referring lawyers know that we provide
the highest degree of professionalism, quality legal work, and compassion
to our cases and our clients. We will never let a referring attorney hear
from the client that phone calls are not being returned, or that the client's
case is moving too slow. This is simply not how we operate.
We recognize that some referring attorneys prefer to remain significantly
involved in a case, while others are comfortable with less involvement.
Participation in each case varies with the case's requirements. In
some cases, referring counsel acts as a liaison with clients, while in
other cases, there is a true and equal co-counsel relationship that develops.
In every case referred to the firm, Flanzig and Flanzig shares the attorney's
fee with the referring co-counsel, in compliance with New York Court Rules.
If you have a case or client you would like to refer to our office, or
