Associating With Weinstein Caggiano PLLC
How We Work With Referring Attorneys
We understand that you want the best result for your client, but that you can’t devote all of your time to a single case – no doubt you have many other matters to attend to and clients relying on you. Instead, associate with us and take advantage of our excellent resources and proven track record of success.
When you associate with us, we will take on the lead counsel role for pretrial, trial and settlement negotiations. While we take the lead, we always encourage your participation to whatever extent you feel comfortable and appropriate. We handle all fee payments associated with the settlement and subrogation concerns.
What We Offer
We have successfully resolved hundreds of asbestos cases, so we know how to determine the likely exposure source and pursue a settlement, even against defendants in bankruptcy.
Because mesothelioma litigation is our primary practice area, our expertise evolves with every case we handle. Our attorneys have decades of experience in this arena, and they understand the science of asbestos illness and the complex laws that govern the successful prosecution of an asbestos claim. Our attorneys have the skills to negotiate a settlement when appropriate, and the tenacity to go to trial when necessary.
How The Fee Arrangement Works
Mesothelioma cases are typically prosecuted on a contingent fee basis. Under many states’ professional responsibility rules, the terms of a fee agreement between lawyers or firms must be spelled out in writing. We will be transparent with you at all times about your client’s case and how the fees will be shared between our firms. We provide detailed accounting every time a settlement payment is disbursed.
Many states’ ethics codes require that attorney fees are apportioned based on the workload of the participating attorneys. Depending on the complexity of your client’s asbestos case and your available time and experience, you may wish to be more or less actively involved in the case. We will operate as the lead counsel, but welcome your input and participation.
The fee arrangement between our firms will be spelled out clearly to your firm and your client.
While every case is unique, we can discuss the referral fees you can likely anticipate when you contact us about your case. We have a proven track record of achieving significant recoveries for asbestos and mesothelioma clients. Partnering with Weinstein Caggiano PLLC greatly increases your odds for achieving the optimum settlement for your client. Call us at 206-558-9441.
