Paying Referral Fees for Michigan Car Accident Cases

We handle all auto and car accident cases on a one-third contingency fee basis. Under Michigan law, we are required to deduct the case expenses from the total settlement amount before calculation our contingent fee.  For most car accident cases, we pay the referring attorney a one-third referral fee.  We guarantee this fee in writing immediately upon being retained by the client for representation.  We also confirm the referral source in our case management software.

Is the Referring Attorney Required to Work on a Michigan Case?

No.  Unlike in other states, Michigan does not require that the referring lawyer work or co-counsel the case in order to receive a referral fee.  The Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct 1.5 (e) only requires that the client is advised of the referral arrangement and does not object and that the total fee on the case is reasonable. 

The client's written consent is required for any type of referral or co-counsel fee arrangement. We will get the client's written consent as part of our original retainer agreement. Our Contingent Fee Agreements include language that a referral fee will be paid to you and the client's signature acknowledges the payment of your referral fee.
