Davis Law Group will consider accepting referrals from other attorneys located in and outside the state of Washington. We also occasionally act as local counsel for out-of-state attorneys that have legal matters in Washington State. And we often participate as co-counsel with local lawyers in need of our serious accident and wrongful death litigationexperience.
Davis Law Group is committed to operating within the ethical parameters set forth by the Washington State Bar Association. As a result of this commitment, any fee agreement made between Davis Law Group and an associating attorney or firm is subject to the terms of the Washington State Code of Professional Responsibility.
Please refer to Washington's fee sharing rule RPC 1.5(e), which states that a division of a fee between lawyers who are not in the same firm may be made only if:
(1) (i) the division is in proportion to the services provided by each
lawyer or each lawyer assumes joint responsibility for the representation;
(ii) the client agrees to the arrangement, including the share each
lawyer will receive, and the agreement is confirmed in writing; and
(iii) the total fee is reasonable; or
(2) the division is between the lawyer and a duly authorized lawyer
referral service of either the Washington State Bar Association or of one of the
county bar associations of this state.
Any time we enter into a fee-sharing arrangement with another attorney or firm, we take several factors into account including the possible recoverable damages, complexity of the case as a whole, previous work done by the attorney and more. We are more than happy to discuss these details in depth with any attorney who wishes to work with our firm.
