Attorney Referrals- Increase Your Revenue Not Your Workload

Our Referral Program

The Higgins Firm in Nashville regularly assists other law firms with significant injury cases and other complex litigation. Our firm pays referral fees to other attorneys in accordance with the Tennessee Rules of Professional Conduct. Unlike some law firms, we have the experience, resources and staff that is required to properly pursue a large damage case. We understand the attention that is required to obtain the best results possible for our clients and the attorneys that have entrusted us with their cases. Our dedication has resulted in long term relationships with multiple law firms across the country that consistently refer us cases.

Relationships that have mutual benefited our firm and the referring firm:
  • Lawyers that do not focus their practice on personal injury or contingent fee litigation
  • Lawyers that do not have the experience, time, resources or finances to handle complex or catastrophic damage cases
  • Lawyers that practice outside the state of Tennessee.
  • Lawyers that need a local familiarity with the Judiciary, Rules and Intricacies of practicing in Tennessee Courts.

Lawyers at The Higgins Firm have litigated cases throughout the country. We have attorneys licensed in Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky and Texas. Our practice is primarily dedicated to serious injury and employment litigation. However, to ensure that cases are handled properly we have lawyers in specific litigation teams that focus their practice in limited areas. For instance, we have a medical malpractice team, personal injury team, workers compensation team and an employment law team. The lead on any case will be taken by a lawyer in that practices in legal arena that applies to a particular case. However, each legal team is available to assist and help with all aspects of any case.

Referral Fees

The Higgins Firm pay competitive lawyer referral fees for almost all serious personal injury cases. The referral fee can be adjusted up or down depending on the liability, damages and/or costs of a particular case. We are open to discussing any reasonable proposal for attorneys that would like for to put our experience and resources to work for their clients.

Tracking Referrals

Like any multi-lawyer firm we handle hundreds of cases each year. As such, to ensure we recognize any referral arrangement we have a centralized case management system that tracks the source of every referral and the terms of the agreement. This helps us ensure that once a case is resolved the attorney fee checks can be disbursed to the appropriate referring firm per the agreement. We also keep the referring firm updated on the progress of all cases.

Communicating with our clients

We have found that in many cases the referring firm wants to continue to have direct involvement with any communications with the client. We truly appreciate this interaction and do all that we can to make sure a good relationship is maintained between everyone involved in the case. We also have found that most clients understand that litigation can be a long and complicated process but merely want to be updated as the case moves along. In other words, they just want to know what is happening. As such, we have an office wide policy of keeping our clients in the loop. As such, if you refer our firm a case you should not obtain a phone call from your client saying they do not know what is going on in their case. Communication is not a problem with our Tennessee Litigations Teams.

We hope you will consider The Higgins Firm in Nashville to assist with your Tennessee Legal needs.
